Taste Down Under VI - Shark Fin House, Lt Burke St, Melbourne

Located at the heart of Melbourne, Yum Cha at Shark Fin House is consistently recommended as the best in Chinatown. Since 1989, this restaurant has been a busy bustling place with three floors and a lift which gets very crowded during peak period. Reservation is recommended for big groups as queue starts forming 30 minutes before the restaurant's trading hours.

The HFB's benchmark for Dim Sum lies in the usual suspects of Prawn Dumplings, Siew Mai and Pork Ribs - although they weren't blissfully divine, they were definitely better than your average.

And if you bet the one dish HFB will order in Australia's Dim Sum restaurants, that dish would definitely be their Deep Fried Squid Tentacles. And boy don't it look delicious? Happiness.
