Me Wah has a long history of serving impeccable Chinese food. That it does so from a hermetic space tucked into the back of a suburban shopping centre is even more remarkable. The spacious interior has been enlivened with a smattering of antiques and artworks. But it's the polished service and the extensive wine list littered with grand cru vintages that add a measure of fine-dining sophistication. Some of the best dishes are those with ingredients of local provenance. Cape Grim beef is wok-seared and served with a fragrant osmanthus sauce. Tasmanian lobster is lightly sautéed with ginger, spring onions and rice wine, while greenlip abalone is braised to tenderness over 12 hours. The weekend yum cha is superb, the delicate, flavour-packed dumplings a highlight. The East-meets-West dessert menu is another draw. Peanut parfait with raspberry rhubarb sorbet and salty caramel is a heavenly confection.
