Ding Hao, Adelaide

Impromptu brunch date with mama bear in Chinatown!

ding hao, yum cha, cheong fan, har gao
Cheong fan (rice noodles with prawn), har gao (prawn dumplings), siu mai (prawn and pork dumplings) and chicken feet in black bean sauce.
Cheong fan, one my mama bears favourite yum cha dishes was cold and heavy. These are best served hot as the rice noodles are still soft and slippery!

The har gao dumpling skins were soft and broke apart before I was able to pick them up (I find that if you’re able to pick up a har gao without it’s case breaking makes it a good dumpling – obviously by the time it’s in your bowl, go and break that little sucker up and eat eat eat! Delicate, soft and slightly chewy dumpling cases are best!)

ding hao, yum cha, ox tripe
Ox tripe and fried red bean dumplings.

It’s been a while since I’ve feasted on yum cha and unfortunately Ding Hao didn’t impress this time around. Anyone else got any other suggestions? Citi Zen is usually my go-to yum cha place for me but for convenience, we ducked into Ding Hao on this particular day.
