Get all your favourites and find some new ones
Located inside The Builders Arms Hotel, Fitzroy's Ricky & Pinky has always been a favourite spot for dining. Recently they've launched something even better - Fitzroy's newest Yum Cha hotspot with chef Archan Chan (formerly of Cutler & Co & Supernormal) at the helm. And if you're keen on some weekend Yum Cha, you're in the right place.

Yum Cha is on lunchtime Friday through Sunday with a Hong Kong inspired menu. Diners can find an ever changing menu with regular Yum Cha favourites such as dumplings, noodle dishes, prawn toast (below) and more.

The menu also includes regular favourites with a twist on the traditional such as spring rolls with Peking duck served with fresh cucumber and hoisin sauce. Or go for something a little different, enjoy cucumber and radish with chilli and sesame oil (below).

Order up dishes such as Sichuan pork dumplings with garlic chive and chilli oil, as well as shiitake mushroom and spinach dumplings. Keen for a bit of spice? The steamed beef bao and chilli sauce are served up in the fluffiest pillows of bao and are incredibly moreish (below).

Sweets lovers will also enjoy dishes such as steamed custard buns or sweet sesame balls (below) or alternatively order up an XL fortune cookie. There are even bowls of fresh lychees on the menu if you're wishing for something refreshing.

If you're keen for a cheeky beverage or cocktail you'll find plenty to choose from, including a playful twist such as the Midori-based Japanese Slipper.

An ideal spot for two or a group, as all menu items can be ordered up per number of diners. It's a great spot to spend a weekend lunch!
