Lucky Dumpling & Noodle Restaurant

921 Burke Rd
VIC 3124

We stopped off in Camberwell to visit a shop, and as it was lunchtime we decided to grab something to eat. Initially we didn't find much that excited us, until we stumbled upon Lucky Dumpling and Noodle Restaurant, just up the hill from the station on Burke Road.

Inside the bamboo and ceiling fixtures gave the place an Asian feel, otherwise the decor was modern, with clean wooden tables and white walls.

We shared a couple of dishes, the first being a plate the fried vegetarian dumplings, which had satisfyingly crisp bottoms.

Inside the fillings included mushrooms and greens. and a bit more air than expected!

We also had a bowl of the chicken and prawn dumplings in chilli oil soup. A hint of prawn flavour did come through in the filling, but the broth needed some of the table condiments added to give it some more depth.

The service was pretty swift, which was welcome. Out the back you could peak into the room where the dumplings were being freshly made. The bill came to a reasonable $18.60, certainly not a bad off the cuff choice for a meal, although I'm rarely so it's likely to be a while before I go back.
