I normally don’t like to post for Yum Cha food category but I have to make an exception for this one as it is worthy. Tao Tao House has become my top and favourite Yum Cha place in Melbourne. Not many photos for this posting as I was enjoying the Yum Cha and it would be very hard for me to describe the Yum Cha dish in the photo.
 
If you like Yum Cha, don’t forget to try Tao Tao House.
