Nope, dumplings are definitely not new to the west, we have some excellent places to get these soft, heavenly parcels of deliciousness in Footscray and Sunshine etc - so why are all the locals talking about Tina’s in Altona? Well, Mamma loves this place ‘cause it’s relaxed, simple, welcoming, and the food is just YUM. There’s plenty of space and the place feels just like when Mamma used to go to the local Chinese with her Mamma! There are even a couple of tables with lazy susan’s down the back, there are plenty of tables to choose from or you can grab a booth, whatever suits the fam.
There’s more on the menu than dumplings too (about 7 types of dumplings - veg/pork/chicken/prawn mixes) - and heaps for the kids with spring rolls, rice, and plenty more to choose from. They don’t have a liquor license as yet but Mamma is looking forward to washing down some dumplings and sweet and sour pork with a cheeky beer this summer after spending the day at the beach!
Mamma’s special mentions: Go for a play at the lovely Logan Reserve after your meal.
