The menu and ambience (seriously) is typical Hong Kong or Taiwan dessert bar. Yes, you must cue, squeeze up to small tables with punters elbow to elbow on either side, and there is no table service. But, the menu, taste, and experience is authentic! Recommended.

Today we went for some Asian dessert after dinner. This place is in the middle of the Melbourne china town and quite popular to Asian crowd. The place is cozy, a place for a tasty dessert and chit chat.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration

Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
