Making rounds in the Asian cuisine circles, Yum Yum Cha is pretty famous for their top grade Asian food, with their specialty being sushi and dimsums. That precisely happens to be my addiction food so I ate a huge deal this one day.
Ambience: the restaurant is small and always full. The interiors are quirky, colorful & fun. Tables are a bit too closely laid out which makes it difficult to move or sit comfortably. One can see the live kitchen churning out food quickly but all in all is a warm little food den.
Service: The staff is sweet and courteous. They know their food well and are happy to help with the menu. Food arrives in express speed and piping hot.
Food: Let’s talk the talk now.
The menu is pretty creative and diverse with a lot to choose from.
Special mention of the amazing tasting sauces on the table. Each one tasted different and gooooood.
• Prawn curry dimsums were spicy and full of chilly flavours and Thai herbs. Delicious.
• Garlic pink crab dimsums tasted wonderfully delicate and packed with flavour.
• Steamed pork buns were doughy and bleh. Not to my liking.
• Duck dimsums were nothing short of an orgasm. Bloody beautiful with a sweet and spicy balance.
• Prawn & Chive dimsums were tender and delicate with good flavour.
• Spicy Salmon sushi was made in a spicy creamy mayo that I loved.
• Prawn tempura and Dragon roll sushi were good, could have been better in terms of flavour though.
• Lantern chilli prawns were made with plump juicy babies in a hot Chinese sauce and fried flour ribbons. Extremely satisfying.
• Chicken in hot basil sauce was average. Could do better in terms of sauce composition.
• Orange kafir lime drink was stunningly refreshing and delicious.
• Pomegranate cocktail was over sweet and tasted like a tonic syrup.
• Expresso crème brûlée looked great but the custard was too too strong and hard to eat. Avoid.
• Their in house ice creams are a bomb! They are made in balls of rice flour jelly which give it texture and innovation. Rocky road is dense, sinful and delicious. I loved the coconut passion fruit too, it was so silky and delicate with subtle flavours. Tried the blueberry and mango too but they didn’t shine as bright as the former flavours for me.
Verdict: Yum Yum Cha is a good when one wants to have authentic Asian food experience. The menu has something for everyone’s palate.
