Feast on Cantonese dishes at restaurants across Melbourne
Cantonese cooking is a fine art. Ingredients like spring onions, rice wine, scallion oil and soy sauce are commonly used to enhance the innate flavours of quality core ingredients, whether that's a premium piece of beef or sought-after delicacy like the celebrated century egg. Spices and herbs are used more sparingly with this type of cuisine than other Chinese traditions, but you'll still find plenty of fiery heat from the likes of star anise, black pepper and ginger. When you eat out at Cantonese restaurants in Melbourne, look forward to traditional dishes like sweet and sour pork, stewed beef brisket and Cantonese style fried rice and if you fancy something special, opt for the salted duck egg served alongside sliced pork or stir-fried veg.
