D House Cafe is one of those offerings along the Swanston St 'education quarter' - with the State Library of Victoria, RMIT and Melbourne Uni all within just a few blocks - that does much to stand out amidst much competition.
With a listed Hong Kong (HK) menu this cafe does much to win in those folks who've visited the asian metropolis and are keen to repeat-an-eat of a certain dish; as well as catering for students, visitors and tourists from HK who may be missing a particular home city dish.
Yet, overall the menu is perhaps best described as one that adheres to the wider fusion and influence of multiple cultures that exists in modern HK. This is seen in dishes like the baked mince beef with Kimchi (Korean), the Portuguese chicken as well as the more familiar offerings from across Chinese cuisine. All up though, whatever you pick, you'll be assured to look upon one or two other dishes as a try 'next time'. This is perhaps the biggest draw of D House.
