Grab your best buddies and join this dumpling and noodle crawl in the Lorne Street neighbourhood and experience a unique and delightful taste of Asia. 

Seven unique Lorne Street spots are putting their best foot forward this Restaurant Month for a travelling feast of dumplings, noodles and unique Asian delights. 

Forget a long-haul flight in coach class, put your walking shoes on and stretch your legs for this group and self-guided gastronomic day out guaranteed to leave you with a happy belly - this is a taste of Asia right in the heart of the city! 

If you've ever wondered why dumpling flavours, fillings and cooking techniques vary so much - it's all according to their regional origins and unique traditions passed down through generations. Each stop on this crawl is hosted by the restaurant owners and managers themselves, ready to greet and invite you to learn about their culture and cuisine - some of which might even show you a trick or two on how to make these juicy morsels!
