Oriental Teahouse brings some part of China to Melbourne with the combination of dumplings and tea. They are traditional with a modern twist and sometimes even experimental. Another winning point is they have a wide ranges of tea and tea appliances which are perfect for tea lovers.

This is another Food Social Global Feast event and as usual I'm their official photographer of the night. The restaurant has a private area on the second floor, perfect for any function such as office party or birthday. Down stair was bright, spacey and airy decorated with Chinese red colour with some oriental ornament yet remain modern and clean.

Prawn Dumpling, Baby Pea Leaf Dumpling and Crystal Prawn Dumpling with Long Jing tea. Out of all three dumplings, my favourite was their baby pea leaf dumplings. The skin was soft and the filling was tasty.

Roast Duck Dumpling, Chicken Dumpling and Pork Shu Mai with Black Dragon Tea. The roast duck dumpling have a cute pink colour but with dumpling I prefer seafood or pork filling rather than duck or chicken. Love their Shu Mai.

Sweet Shredded Steak with Mixed Fried Rice and Pu Erh with Chrysanthemum Tea. The fried rice was tasty and balanced the sweetness from the beef dish. The beef was a bit too sweet for me, a pinch of salt would help. Accompanied by Pu Erh tea also known as diet tea cause they have an effect on cleaning all the fat in your body.

Chinese Wonka Chocolate Dumplings with Relaxing Tea. Chinese dumplings are a very common dish in Asia, usually fill with red bean but honestly chocolate was not bad at all, especially with the green tea ice cream.

It was another fun night by Food Social, their next Global Feast event is I for Italy at Michelangelo Osterio. Go to their event page for more info.
