I will be flying off to Jakarta in a few hours. I was going to continue on with my New Zealand series before heading up north but there are lots of photos to go through, lots of prices to convert and lots of notes to dig up. And as much as I enjoyed my time on the Zest food tour of Wellington, I don’t have the energy to chronicle the three or so hours I spent trawling markets, cafés and shops just tonight. After all, I’m not quite done with packing!
I don’t know what my internet situation will be up there but just in case I don’t have a chance to update my blog (whether it’d be because I don’t have internet or whether it be because I’m too busy stuffing my face with food or visiting yet another ‘relative’), here’s a quick one to tide you guys over.
Lucky Dumpling & Noodle Restaurant. Ha, like you guys didn’t know I was going to write about dumplings. Then again, how long has it been since my last post on dumplings? Yeah, thought so.
I don’t venture out to Camberwell a lot these days but because I had an appointment at the VicRoads office there late last year, I decided to have lunch on Burke Road after I was done.
It wasn’t terribly busy just before 2pm on a weekday, with two other tables occupied. I grabbed a seat at the back and promptly ordered a plate of 15 steamed pork dumplings ($8.80).
Funnily enough, I ended up getting 12 pork dumplings, five chicken and prawn dumplings and one beef dumpling on my plate. I’m not sure why that happened but eh, I shrugged and continued eating. The dumpling skins were slightly on the thick and soggy side, which meant that they weren’t the best dumplings ever but the fillings were more than okay. The best news? I still paid $8.80 for 18 dumplings.
While I won’t be quick to urge someone living on the other side of town to make the trek to Lucky Dumpling & Noodle Restaurant, I will still go there if I happen to be in Camberwell and I am craving dumplings – and that’s only if I can’t be bothered with the extra 10 minute drive to Box Hill for better ones.
