Mother Chu's Taiwanese Gourmet

86–88 Dixon St.
Shop 1–4
Sydney, New South Wales, 2000, Australia
TEL: 61-2-9211-0288

Not to be confused with the local vegetarian restaurant of the same name, this Chinatown restaurant serves traditional Taiwanese fare in a small, often crowded space at the end of the Dixon Street pedestrian mall. The dining room contains a handful of tables and Asian-inspired art prints, and additional seating is available outside beneath a pagoda-style eave hung with bright red lanterns. Prepared by hand in the open kitchen, the specialties here include pan-fried pork or beef dumplings, and yu tiao (fried bread sticks) wrapped in sticky rice or spring onion pancakes.

Insider Tip:

After your meal, walk to the nearby Emperor’s Garden Cake & Bakery to pick up a batch of the signature Emperor’s Puffs: small dough pillows filled with sweet egg custard.
