ShanDong MaMa, Melbourne CBD by Rockstar

I love dumplings. I like cheap and cheerful dumplings. I like more refined dumplings. I just like dumplings - Chinese dumplings, Polish ones, Lebanese ones… I'm not picky! 

When a fellow dumpling lover from interstate comes to visit, I felt it was time to visit ShanDong MaMa!

Ms Dumpling and I arrived just before 6pm; just before it got busy. And busy it did get, quickly.  We chose some of their specialities. The fish dumplings (mackerel) boiled were a bit different - a soft tasty fishy mousse inside soft thin skinned dumplings. I quite enjoyed them but think they would have been better fried to create some textural contrast.

The prawn, black fungus and chives fried dumplings were all good. Another thin skin, beautifully fried to create a gorgeous crunch yielding to a delicious filling. We were completely full but I could have kept eating these until I burst! They did Melbourne proud in the dumplings stakes!

Delicious Dumplings - love the variety available that is so different to those you normally try. Worth visiting.
