Let's put the dim sim on a pedestal


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.
