Last night David’s Restaurant in Prahran was relaunched. Having entertained guests with prized and traditional cuisine from Shanghai (authentic to the core, as I, a Shanghai born and bred girl, can testify) for over 15 years (that’s dinosaur years in the restaurant biz), David’s was recently refurbished. Coated in modern white, exuding that welcoming Melbournian buzz, the restaurant shed its previous old Shanghai feel and embraced a hip and contemporary new look. What remained the same is the vast array of fresh, choice dumplings and their exquisite flavours. You will notice that there are hardly any pictures of food, needless to say it was because we were too busy eating and tasting to take photos of the delightful morsels. However I did take note of my favourite dish of the night, a sweet one of course, white chocolate dumplings. I think I met my new favourite dessert!
