South Melbourne Dim Sims

South Melbourne Market, Melbourne

The humble dim-sim was invented in Melbourne’s Chinatown in the 1940’s. Since then it has become an Australian fast-food staple.

It’s a dumpling-style snack featuring minced meat (usually pork) wrapped in pastry, and then either steamed or deep-fried.
