The famous Taiwanese noodle chain arrived in Sydney back in 2011 and has drawn in the masses. They're efficient, they're delicious and they're now a lunchtime favourite for many an office worker around the city.
Plan to order up a storm. A must have are the xiao long bao pork dumplings, filled with hot broth and tasty pork filling. Take a small bite from the top, drink the broth from within, then down the remaining dumpling. Also worth your well-earned pennies? The vegetable and pork wonton soup or the vegetable and pork wonton dipped in a spicy sauce.
Drinks and desserts are no less exciting. The lychee mint juice is hard to go past, while the steamed mini black sesame bun and golden taro bread are delicate but indulgent ways to finish up your meal.
