    I've been in vic for two years now. Recently started playing baseball and found that Steamed Dimmies are a staple at all sports clubs in VIC.

    I swear my entire life in Perth I never saw Steamed Dimmies.



    Any Perthites know where to get the glory of the steamed dimmie?

    Just to add to this, I know a few VIC mates who cut them in half length ways, and throw 'em on a BBQ. Not going to lie, these actually work better on a BBQ!

    Do the same thing with kabana or other such meats of a similar texture and size. Add a soy or chilli dipping sauce and they make the perfect combo finger food for the start of a BBQ.

    Sliced salamis work well too but they are a bit harder to dip.

    Make'em ya self, the local steamed dimmie has been ruined by retard shop keepers these days:upset:

    Not so long back, they would put them in the steamer and the buggers would stay there all day, getting their steamy goodness infused.......now the ****s just nuke'em half the time, and just scare'em with the steamer:mad:

    Not quite the same as good bought ones, but get a steamer thingo for a pot and do them ya self, HAVE to use mushroom soy on them though, also if you do them at home, you don't look like a fucking pig smashing down a dozen at a time......BBQ dimmies are the tits:leet:

    I was always partial to the fried ones over steamed. 50c each at high school. Two of them on a cold winter morning was divine.

    Fresh dimmies are glorious culinary simplicity. Same as a fresh cinnamon dohnut, piping hot garlic naan straight from the tandoor or freshly baked bread with a good spread of butter. Simple as shit but just amazing.

    You can get the classic sports club style dimmies from Woolworths - I wonder if they have them over in Perth?

    We used to have them all the time - you put them in bowl with some water, put some glad wrap over them and zap them - BOOM steamed dimmy

    They're on the website, so probably. Just because OP hasn't seen a steamed dim sim doesn't mean we don't have them. We do, and always have. He won't have any trouble coming by some.

    Probably more of a Fashion Chaps shop food rather than a sporting club food.
