Hot off the heels of its ever growing popularity in its hometown of Manila, the very first Australian branch of TuanTuan Chinese Brasserie has now opened its doors in Melbourne.
And if you’re into the crisp atmosphere of brunch at one of the city’s hundreds of European style cafés, but tired of the same old smashed avo on toast or just hate waking up early to eat out, then TuanTuan is the definitely up your alley. Featuring oak-wood furniture, TuanTuan’s pastel coloured interiors are influenced by the chic and simple design of French cafés but its menu specialises in a range of Hong Kong style comfort food.
TuanTuan’s famous crispy pork buns stuffed with a choice of crispy barbecue pork, pineapple, salted egg custard, or almond cream, will no doubt be a favourite among those who love a mix of sweet and savoury flavours. For those looking for a truly traditional meal, TuanTuan has a small variety of offal based dishes to try out. And if the sound of soyed chicken gizzards or soyed beef stomach doesn’t sound particularly appealing, TuanTuan also serves a much larger variety of curries, congee, noodle soup, and Macanese rice dishes.
It’s been such a hit in Manila that it’s surely going to prove a nice addition to the already buzzing dining scene over at Carlton. Go give it a try for yourself and for more info head to the website listed below.
