Firstly, a Dim Sim is a Chinese-inspired snack food that was created in Australia. Secondly, it was originally offered to miners in the goldfields in 1800s. And thirdly, if you have ever eaten dumplings. Well, you have pretty much an idea, what it is. Moreover, they can be made with pork or any other meats.
After that, let’s go where you can find these beautiful Chinese-Australian dim sims. Because they were made in the Aussie island but by the Chinese. In fact, the Dim Sim shop started in the South Melbourne Market since nearly 60 years ago. Where, nowadays it has grown from a humble take-away spot into a landmark.
Therefore, also you can find a further three stalls Including Emporium, Queen Victoria Market and Preston Market.

Certainly, I don’t know how many times, I passed by at the Dim Sim shop in the South Melbourne Market. And honestly, never felt the desires to eat one of them. Perhaps, because I didn’t like how they looked but after having tried almost all the spots in the market.
Suddenly, I said, I have to eat these kind of Chinese dumplings. Besides, it’s always full with Aussies and Asians, and I don’t blame them because the dim sims are delicious. Moreover, you can order it fried or steamed. However, the deep fried is the best, nice and crispy plenty of flavour.
Plus, if you add some Ketchup to the dim sim as I did, definitely you will be eating one of the most beautiful food in the South Melbourne Market.
In addition, also you can find spring rolls and potatoes cake here. However, they are just not good enough as the most delicious Australian dumpling.
