Melbourne Dumpling Tour

Last week, Gastrology was invited by Walk Melbourne to attend one of their Melbourne dumpling tours. Being keen dumpling enthusiasts, it was an offer too good to refuse.
We visited 4 dumpling venues and tried 4 different styles of dumplings over 2.5 hours - the group receives a sharing plate at each of the dumpling houses.

The tour was designed by Monique (the brains behind Walk Melbourne) to show a range of different dumplings at some of Melbourne's best dumpling restaurants - some venues are more budget conscious, others more upmarket, but all are authentic.
Along the way we also learnt a little bit about Melbourne’s history and how the Chinese have influenced Melbourne.

Walk Melbourne offers eight different walks from dumplings to coffee to luxury weekend food discovery packages. All groups are small with a maximum of 10 people, so there is plenty of opportunity to get to know the others in your group.
