The dim sim. A steamed or fried emblem of our multicultural society. Wedged between two worlds, deemed Western by the East and Eastern by the West, both sides can agree it’s 100% Australian.
Developed in Melbourne this mystery bag of delight has been a regular on our menus for almost 70 years.
Thick skinned, resourceful and with a suspicious background, the dim sim captures the spirit of what it is to be Australian.
Let’s put the dim sim on a pedestal, literally. We need your support to help to build a big bronze monument to the dim sim. A piping hot beacon to our all-inclusive culture.
Ask not what your dim sim can do for you but what you can do for your dim sim.
- City of Melbourne
The Right Honourable Lord Mayor Robert Doyle
Dim sim lovers around the globe have spoken. Let's put the dim sim on a pedestal, literally!
We want to build a shrine to something that never went to war, never held a note, nor ever caught a ball.
If Melbourne wishes to consider itself as the culinary and cultural capital of Australia we must honour our home-grown treasures.
We call for a statue (preferably bronze) to honour this piping hot beacon of our all-inclusive culture.
The dim sim is in your hands.
