Dim Sum Pop-Up Bar by Eric Koh

Date: Until 23rd December
Location: Work In Progress bar, Sydney

We love our dumplings here at True Local, so you can imagine our tears of joy when Eric Koh opened a pop-up dumpling joint at the Work In Progress bar on Kent Street in the city. The former dumpling wizard at Mr Wong, Eric Koh was most recently part of the team who brought the Michelin-starred Tim Ho Wan dumpling brand to Australia. Now back with the Merivale group, and soon to open a new venue in Enmore featuring Hong Kong-inspired street food, this dim sum pop-up is a delicious not-to-be-missed sneak peek at the genius behind the steamer. Find out more »
