Three words: dumplings, dumplings, dumplings

The best hangover breakfast around is right here, so don your loosest pants and get ready for dumpling madness.

First you'll want an outrageous number of soup-filled dumplings, all wobbly with their satiny thin skins. Then you'll need some of the soft, gelatinous, red-braised pork and a big dose of green beans sautéed with fried pork mince.

Take two shallot pancakes washed down with a Tsing Tao and call us in the morning.

Group dinners:
Doing next-level Shanghai dumplings and duck, Hu Tong ticks the special occasion box, but is relaxed enough for the beers to flow without rebuke. Numbers: Up to 20. $69pp.
