Respond to Review of CLOSED: V-Gem Cafe
Review: The dumplings filling was enjoyable a distinct Asian taste but not sure what it was. I am not sure what the sauce was, it was not bad but not great, nothing special but the main thing was it did not detract from the dumplings. I thought maybe the dumplings broke up a bit easy but must qualify this because I am not a dumplings expert. I had the steamed dumplings and look forward to trying the other entrees such as the dim sims, crispy tofu, and spring rolls, along with having the dumplings fried, and would then be happy to have the steamed dumplings again. For the main course I had the Fried Kway Teow (Char Kway Teow) with an egg, no gravy version. This was perfect. The vegies were at a perfect crispness. The rice noodles were delicious. The whole dish was a perfect consistency, not too oily, eveything just right. I would have to give this dish at least a 9/10 but there is no reason why I shouldn't give it a 10/10. The meal came with a complimentary small bowl of a blended cauliflower soup. This was quite nice and added another taste dimension to the meal but I don't know under what conditions this is provided. I had a mug of peppermint tea with the meal, this is good for the digestion. The mug came with two tea bags probably only need one tea bag per mug, I am not sure what others think. The restaurant provides a very friendly and peaceful setting with the other diners relaxing and enjoying their meals. I parked up near the Art Gallery it was $1.75 per hour, this is just a short walk down Little Malop St to the restaurant, and then after the meal I visited the Gallery which as usual was quite enjoyable. There are lots of delicious-sounding options on the menu and being Melbourne-based means I won't be able to eat here often. I look forward to trying some of the other options such as the Hokkien Noodles and the Tom Yum noodle soup. I might have to go on a Saturday and have brunch and then later in the day have dinner. Maybe I can meet you there.
