Wonton House, Melbourne

We had originally wanted to go to Hutong for dinner in China Town but it was fully booked. Our fault for not organising it early enough! ‘The Mother’, Brother in Law and I were catching up with two of our friends in Melbourne, P and R. A lot of places we thought of was either closed or fully booked, so we took a stroll down China Town and P suggested this place.

Oddly though, as the name suggests, Wonton House, we did not order any wontons or any dumplings! Thought we would each pick a dish…

Fish and bbq pork tofu hot pot. Usually one of my favourite dish in Chinese restaurant but this was average. The tofu was nice, but the fish I thought had too much batter.

The beef in black bean sauce I thought was ‘different’. The sauce was way too thick and salty, it was a shame cause the beef was incredibly tender!

I really liked the salt and pepper fried tofu. Lightly battered, the tofu was soft and extremely yummy! Couldn’t help but eat more than one!

Lastly, watan hor – thick rice noodles topped with thick egg gravy sauce with seafood was a winner amongst the diners.

Overall the food was ok. From memory, the total bill came to $85.00 – which is ok but definitely have had better Chinese food in Sydney.

After dinner, we went for dessert. Can’t for the life of me remember the name of the cafe, but we shared Bailey’s cheese cake and OH MY! It was absolutely divine! Absolutely loved it!

It was definitely lovely to catch up with P and A – hoping to catch up with you both soon!

    I had an egg gravy sauce for the first time recently – not a fan, but I do LOVE Salt & Pepper Tofu.

    Yeah I went here when something else was packed. Pretty average. Mapo tofu was below average, wontons weren’t anything to write home about.

    The black bean sauce looks like Clag glue!

    The wontons here are probably the best in Melbourne – but wouldn’t even rate when compared to Hong Kong and Macau. It’s a sad reality. Much like one can’t get good Japanese ramen at all down South, even counting in the newly opened Kokoro Ramen.

    At least Sydney has decent ramen!
