Inner west locals, this one is for you. The dumpling experts at Lotus Dining Group have opened a second Lotus Dumpling Bar in Summer Hill.

Plant-based eaters will be particularly pleased with the highlights of the Cantonese-leaning menu, with dedicated vegetarian and vegan dishes championed at the group's latest outpost. A well-spiced and balanced vegan five-spice tofu is an ideal start for meat-eaters and vegetarians alike, while the black fungus dumplings and a buttery and crispy eggplant served with honey and chilli round out a diverse offering.

Other highlights include XO scallops with soft and fluffy Chinese dipping doughnuts, best eaten as a mopping tool for the leftover XO sauce.

"We're excited to bring our dumpling bar offering to Summer Hill," says Lotus Dining Group Head Chef Steve Wu. "Over the last few years, we've seen a big shift in diners choosing to stay local so we wanted to share our Walsh Bay concept with a brand new neighbourhood within Sydney."

The venue design of Summer Hill's Lotus Dumpling Bar is a nod to the original restaurant in Walsh Bay. Open brick feature walls, casual banquette benches and timber tables all feature throughout.

A range of local and international wines, craft beer and cocktails is on offer to pair with your dumpling feast.

Lotus Dumpling Bar Summer Hill is open at 26 Lackey Street, Wednesday to Sunday from 5pm to 10pm and for lunch on Friday to Sunday from 12pm to 3pm.
