Chinese Restaurants in Collingwood

Through the waves of migration over the centuries to Melbourne, we can thank early Chinese settlers from the 1850s for bringing us all the Chinese cuisine we enjoy today. The earliest Chinese immigrants started cookhouses for miners who needed a hot plate at the end of rough days in the field.

Post-WWII reforms in Australia brought Chinese immigrants from a trickle to a steady flow, and by 1970 Chinese-Australian food was officially a real, authentic, delicious “thing”! The past 40+ years has been a constant celebration of Melbourne’s successful multicultural makeup. Nowadays, it is hard to walk down a couple blocks and not find an incredible Collingwood Chinese restaurant serving the best dumplings you ever taste.

Read below to find out more about how Chinese cuisine has flourished for Aussies, along with the most popular Asian dishes, and secrets to picking the perfect Chinese restaurant in Collingwood for you!

The Best of Two Worlds: How Chinese Culture & Cuisine Has Flourished in Collingwood

On its face, Chinese and Aussie culture seem at odds: Chinese culture has clear hierarchies with absolutely no question of authority tolerated; Aussies have a much more open and jovial cultural lens. However, Chinese-Australians admit that while they may still love their country’s history and cuisine, bringing it into a Aussie culture with free expression has opened doors for them they never thought possible.

At this point, Chinese-Americans mostly come over for education and work opportunities. Fortunately for all of us, Aussies with generations of Chinese roots have provided Collingwood flats truly authentic, delicious Chinese food.

Now, ingredients like soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine, ginger, and garlic all have made their way into common culinary dishes for Aussies. In fact, dumplings and noodles with soy sauce have become some of Aussie people’s favorite dishes – period!
