Chinese restaurants in Melbourne have a unique historical quality to them. They descend from Chinese immigrants who tried to create Chinese-Australian fusion in an effort to feed Australian gold miners. As the 20th century dawned, Australian intellectuals and cultural leaders began “venturing into Chinatown” for the unique, authentic experience it provided – as well a respite from the dominant Aussie-European culture. Since 1970, Australia has fully embraced its Chinese communities, allowing fine Chinese dining establishments to proliferate across multicultural cities like Melbourne.
After spending a day exploring the green meadow parks and street art laneways, we wanted to provide a couple options of Chinese restaurants in the Melbourne area, along with the dishes that have become famous in the Melbourne community. Perhaps most famous would be Shandong MaMa, a family-owned Chinese restaurant in Melbourne that brings the quaint culture of the fishing town Yantai all the way across the world. Their dumplings use local seafood like mussels and are homemade every day. It is hard to find a better embodiment of authentic Chinese-Australian cuisine in Melbourne than Mama’s. It should be your first choice going out!
However, all tastes are different, so we want to make sure you have a couple backup ideas should homemade mussel dumplings not be your fancy. Spice Temple specializes in its Wagyu beef and salted duck eggs – a delicacy in any region. Tim Ho Wan has an efficient service perfectly geared towards takeout services, selling BBQ pork buns. This dizzyingly good dish actually won the restaurant a Michelin star, anointing it one of the best Chinese restaurants in Australia! However, don’t forget to also try out Supernormal, David’s Spicy Pot, and a variety of other options listed here and here.
