Together with its surrounding suburbs Fairfield is one of Australia's most culturally diverse areas.
It's no surprise that a number of its restaurants have a strong yum cha culture brewing behind their doors.
Yum Cha in Cantonese literally means "drink tea". Dim Sum is often used in place of the name yum cha but traditionally dim sum refers to the small dishes whereas yum cha refers to the entire meal.
Dishes are usually steamed or fried and savoury or sweet with three or four pieces per serve.
Arguably one of the areas most well known yum cha restaurants is the Iron Chef Chinese Seafood Restaurant in Broomfield Street, Cabramatta.
They serve up the traditionally popular dim sum, found in most yum cha restaurants, as well as their own unique dishes (as pictured far right).
Head chef at Iron Chef, Lai Hong, said that every couple of months he comes up with three or four new dishes.
"I have to think of and create a new product myself using the same existing ingredients," he said. "If they are good we'll keep them. So we have a lot of new products here."
Assistant general manager at the Iron Chef James Yang said dishes start from about $4.10 for a small serve and is served weekdays from 10am to 3pm and on weekends from 9am to 3pm.
"We always serve yum cha with tea, which is free," Mr Yang said. "So it can be cheap or expensive."
There are traditions associated with yum cha and many are connected with the serving of tea.
It is customary to pour tea for others before filling your own teacup and while being served drinkers often tap the table with two fingers of the same hand as an expression of thanks. This is known as 'finger kowtow'.
Mr Yang says legend has it that a Chinese emperor once went into a teahouse with his servants and high ranking officials and to maintain his anonymity, he took his turn at pouring tea. His high servants and officials wanted to kowtow but if they did, they would reveal the emperor's identity. Instead they tapped fingers on the table to represent their bowed head.
Once a teapot is empty, the lid is turned to indicate to the waiter that it needs to be filled.
