You won’t find chicken chow mein or General Tso’s anything at most Chinese restaurants in Australia. Instead you get regional offerings like Sichuan-style hotpot, Yunnan noodle soups, and ShanDong-style dumplings. Always-buzzing Cantonese institution Ling Nan is a reliable go-to for its generous plates of pippies in XO and duck pancakes served until 2:30am. Service can be brusque (you definitely won’t be allowed to hang around after eating) but that’s balanced out by affordable prices and the ability to BYO.
