Nowhere in Newtown manages to transport you out of King Street like Luyu & Yum Yum, the chic dumpling and tea house located down the road from the Newtown Hotel. As you pass under an awning of dumpling baskets and ascend the stairs, it would be easy to forget where you were at all. The sleek black settings and backlit bar and wine rack are instantly cool and welcoming. As well, the food is to die for. The many different kinds of dumplings on offer are all worth a try, and there is no better way to finish a meal than with one of Luyu’s signature teas.
