[Oriental Tea house, 455 Chapel street South Yarra]
[From their website]:
Welcome one, welcome all! Feast your sense on the Oriental Teahouse – Melbourne’s premier tea and yum cha destination. A magical, culinary myriad of taste, aroma and atmosphere, here to welcome you with open minds, open arms and open menus.
Stace and I had a reunion over brunch the other day, and as I hadn’t seen her beautiful face since 2010, it was certainly an afternoon filled with laughter and tears of joy.
She took me to this beautiful YUM CHA style restaurant, Oriental Teahouse. Now this isn’t everyones ideal place for breakfast, and to be quite frank I did have ‘my first meal of the day’ already…. however thats what breakfast is all about isnt it? Indulging in it all day…. DROOL!
We drove to Chapel street (in Melbourne) to feast on yummies, as stace divulged in her stories of ‘yummies’ over the summer. 😉
We both decided, as the sun was high and scorching, an iced tea would be suitable.
I ordered iced toothpaste and licorice tea …(peppermint/aniseed… what a mistake!!!)
And Stace ordered a dreamy berrilicious tea
For food, we decided on a banquet for 2:
“Big dumpling lover” ($21.00 pp)
* Seafood basket dumplings
* Chive & baby pea leaves dumplings
* Variety Basket dumplings
*Pork shu mai & Buck wheat vegetable dumplings
*Satay Pork dumplings
and let me tell you, they tasted as good as they looked!!! YUM!!!
after all that, we decided, YES we are still hungry. how?? I hear you ask? I will tell you how!
