Oh WOW! I cannot believe that it's been almost 3 weeks since I last blogged. To say I've been flat out at work almost seems like an understatement. So knackered every day and night. At the same time, there's been so many catchups happening the past few weeks, which was fun. Anyway, hope I find time to blog more often again.

Anyway, Mum and Dad were here in Melbourne for a month and every day seems like a food adventure for us. Parents LOVE cooking everyday. Although, weekends we would eat out a bit because there's so much they want to enjoy in Melbourne too. One of their favourite places this trip has definitely got to be Wealth Garden in Doncaster. We LOVE LOVE LOVE the food here so much. Such a huge relief to finally find a yumcha/dimsum place in Melbourne that we truly enjoy. Big thanks to Daisy and Julie for their recommendation. Now, our family now can't get enough of this place! =D

For me, I judge a good Dim Sum restaurant by their prawn paste. It's used in SO many Dim Sum dishes, which makes it highly significant. Just like how I judge a good Chinese restaurant by their simple fried rice. Sounds simple but it's true. You can tell a lot about a restaurant's abilities by how well they master their basics. Wealth Garden definitely nailed it in this department. 

Another reason why I like this place is because the portions are VERY big and generous, compared to most. Not only quality, but quantity. I really do like how we've all got our own favourite dishes from here, there's just much too enjoy. Also, the service is super QUICK and FRIENDLY (which is rare in most Asian establishments). There's a wait staff walking past your table every minute, you can definitely count on your plate to be cleaned, tea to be poured or food to be served in close to no time.... With a friendly touch.

Wealth Garden really ticked all my boxes for a good Dim Sum restaurants. So much so that we were back there two weeks in a row and would've been back for a third, had we had the time. Personal favourites were definitely the Prawn and Corn Balls, Prawns and Chive Dumplings and also the Winter Melon Topped with Prawn Paste and Dried Scallops. YUM YUM!
