Whether they're your go-to bite-sized first course or your jam-packed meat- and vegetable-filled main meal, everyone loves dim sims and dumplings. And whether you prefer wontons or gyoza, pierogi or mandu, you'll find them at Welcome to Thornbury's returning Dimmy and Dumpling Festival.
From 12–10pm on Saturday, May 29, the Northcote favourite will welcome a lineup of D&D-serving eateries for two days. While just who'll be serving up dishes is yet to be announced, previous fests have involved the likes of Woking Amazing, The Brunswick Mess Hall, Harry Hoo, Pierogi Pierogi, Dim Sim King and Flaming Dimmies. So, you'll likely be able to enjoy momo for lunch, jiaozi for dinner and pirozhki in between.
Entry is free, and then it's a buy-what-you-plan-to-eat kind of deal. And although we don't recommend giving human food to dogs, your pet pupper is welcome to come along while you scoff down all of the dim sims and dumplings you can handle.
