The smallest Laneway

There is a tiny shoulder-width laneway between Little Bourke St in China Town and Lonsdale St. It actually has a doorway within the wall that leads into a small courtyard at the back of the shops on Lonsdale St. The lane opens onto Corrs Lane that has several Japanese and Chinese restaurants including the very good Shanghai Street Dumplings Restaurant where you can watch the ladies making the fresh dumplings through the street window. The shops on the Lonsdale St side all used to be Greek cafes, cake shops and restaurants.  Several good ones remain. This narrow portal can take you from China to Greece….
