While shopping in Brunswick St, we stumbled across Fat Dumpling, and the cute glow shining through the glass was too appealing to continue walking past. Behind the heavy wooden door, a cosy ambience and simple yet delicious menu offers a perfect pitstop lunch, quick and filling, yet not too heavy.

We ordered the shallot pancakes, which were crispy outside and with a dash of chili added. These were the highlight for me, tasty and filling, and cooked to perfection.

We followed up with the pork and chinese cabbage panfried dumplings, gyoza style. These were delicious and the winning choice of my friend.

Lastly, but proving we'd ordered a little too much, were the pork Xiao long bao. These are the dumplings with the hot broth inside. We struggled to finish, having sated our appetite with the first two dishes.

There are plenty of seafood and vegetarian options on the menu, a good range of beers and wine list, should you be wanting to linger.

It's good food in a lovely little diner, perfect for a work day or when you need a break from your busy day.
