Me Wah
-42.908483,147.34538

Me Wah has been the standard-bearer in Tasmania for the best Chinese cuisine for many years. This is a big-night-out restaurant for Hobart, which is evident in the celebratory clientele, and there are few peers when it comes to its professionalism, décor and wine list. The menu also hits all the right notes in featuring wagyu, Cape Grim beef, local seafood and lamb. Sure, you can have a serve of well-made sweet and sour pork, but if you want to splurge, it's hard to go past the local lobster simply prepared with ginger and spring onion. Just make sure you have the handmade e-fu noodles with it to soak up every lick of the sauce. Other great things include the dumplings - and there is extremely good yum cha on the weekends (just remember to make a booking). If you fancy a sweet finish, Me Wah will do its best, but choosing something interesting from the extensive drinks list may prove to be more fruitful.
