I want to thank Mr J & Mrs G for introducing us to Wonton House Secret Kitchen. We made a last minute booking, half an hour beforehand to make sure we ensured we got a spot. A great thing especially with a party of 5. I actually walk passed this place a few times at Glen Waverley. I had no idea it was a yum cha place during lunch! The restaurant is open spaced in the village cinemas complex
The yum cha dishes itself are tasty and taste similar to other yum cha. Nothing out of the ordinary but still very satisfying for your yum cha cravings. What makes this place stand out are the dishes that are made to order. These dishes aren’t offered in their trolleys so you will need to ask or order them through the waitresses/waiters
Egg tarts was first offered. As much as I love egg tarts I am truly spoiled living in Box Hill. My egg tart meter is measured against Asian Grain Dessert, which I personally think do the best egg tarts in Melbourne. No egg tarts anywhere else taste the same.. these ones I will rank them, second best!
Chinese donut & bok choy wrapped in rice sheets (need to order this). Mr J mentioned that they rotate the vegetables and sometimes use gai lan. I have never seen it offered like this as I usually see it with the chinese donut on its’ own.
This was actually offered to us on a tray (not ordered). The word Durian definitely makes our mouths jump and quickly say yes! In the end, it was the best dish of the day. It’s a durian ice cream mo chi – creamy and smooth but it filled our happy durian palate with delight. Note these were the very last ones of the day so I am not sure if it will be easily available.
A really lovely yum cha experience and already scheduling my next visit. We paid about $120 for 5 people. The service isn’t the best as we had to order things again and again before we eventually received the dishes.
