• Tao Dumplings (South Yarra)

If you’re a regular on my blog, you’d know that Tao Camberwell has been a favourite. But recently I thought I should branch out and try their other locations.

Upon entering, I noticed that the South Yarra Tao Dumplings has the same theme of dark, heavy, wood furniture; an open kitchen to see the dumpling chef at work; loud (sometimes very loud) chatter; two levels; and the same menu with a disclaimer under the photos that the images may not be exactly how your dish would look.

With all this sameness, I ordered the same thing as usual: chilli oil dumplings, fried veggie dumplings and the eggplant hot pot.

Eggplant Hot Pot

With little surprise, the food was pretty similar to their other location. The eggplant arrived super hot, oily, sweet and oh so delicious. The dumplings are still the best confirming that this franchise deserves to be my favourite of the moment.

If you haven’t read my detailed review of the Camberwell food, here it is: Tao Dumplings Camberwell

Next up with be the Northcote restaurant. Fingers crossed.
