Double Wang on Anzac Parade!0 👍 / 0 👎
Not only will your friends not believe that this place is actually called Wang Wang Shanghai Silver Star, they won't be able to comprehend that it cost you $15 a head, and then blew that head open like a bunga in a letter box in a dramatic explosion of bready dumplings and pancakes.
Because we're all about bold claims, I'm going to come right out and say this is both the only Chinese I've eaten on Anzac Parade and the greatest. I can say this because I'm a food blogger and it's my right; like having an oversized camera, ego and rate card.
It's always packed here with families and students, and we suspect, from ongoing investigation and unfounded assumption, that most should have a better idea of great Chinese food than us. The tofu hot pots and sizzling plates are popular, so might be worth trying, but we've not been that adventurous yet - it's just too difficult to go past the classics we get every time: Chicken Black Bean, Fried Pork Dumplings and the Pork Pancakes.
Go get some Wang!
If you get a craving for dumpings, or awesome Chinese food, but don't want to pay through the roof, head to Wang Wang Shanghai Silverstar. After a meal here, you will always be craving the Wang!
Dumplings here are the best. They are not as good as Din Tai Fung, or other wanky inner city joints, but, they are up there, and for about a quarter of the price, you can't go wrong! Made by the little lady out back (see photo below), they are also super fresh! Being an exceptional food blogger, I don't remember specific dumplings, I think we just ordered all of them, and they were bloody good!
If you are in the area, you can't go wrong, with Wang Wang! Good price, good times!
The Best: The name, Dumplings, Pork Pancakes, Chicken Black Bean
The Worst: Can be slow in the evenings
