United Nations of Dumplings:
A myriad of flavours under one roof
South Yarra’s Oriental Teahouse is holding an international dumplings degustation, titled United Nations of Dumplings to serve an impressive sixteen variety menu showcasing exotic flavours across sixteen countries.
Held on Monday 19 and Wednesday 21 March, guests will be transported to the corners of the globe in a two-hour experience that brings people together the way a humble dumpling can translate through many cultures.
Expect signature tastes such as Nepal’s turkey momos with tomato-cilantro sauce, Polynesia’s crab Rangoon fried wontons, through to maple syrup dumplings straight from Quebec. The essence of the night takes tribute to the multicultural community unique to Melbourne. In a bid to spotlight international brilliance across the dumplings scene – expect a myriad of flavours all under one roof.
60 Bottles. 60 People.
Harbouring enough prawns to feed a small village, guests will be getting their hands dirty for a one-night-only extravaganza at David’s on Tuesday 20 March in Prahran.
Paying homage to the waterways of the Shanghai countryside, a communal table lined with banana leaves will plate the evening’s succulent supply of wok-fired tiger prawns sourced from South Australia. Sixty bottles of wine from Yering Station will also be in high circulation to keep the waters flowing.
60 kg Prawns. 60 Bottles. 60 People invites guests to be upstanding, peeling back prawns shoulder-to-shoulder in complete comfort as the chef lays out the feast straight from the wok. Each person will be elbow-deep in delicious garlic, XO and chilli wok-fired prawns, so expect an endless supply of fluffy bao buns to soak up the flavoursome juices along the way.
