Yum Cha is a fun and modern twist on the traditional dim sum ritual. The restaurant has two locations in Hong Kong; one in Tsim Sha Tsui and one in Central. “Yum Cha” (which in Cantonese literally translates to “drink tea”), is a popular afternoon ritual to get together to enjoy dim sum and tea. Yum Cha’s restaurants serves food that is playful and creatively presented, while still maintaining authentic flavours and the essence of each dish. The restaurants are furnished in a contemporary art deco style, in a palette of greys, copper tones and robin’s egg blue. The atmosphere is relaxed and inviting while service is professional and efficient.
The creative menu combines Chinese cuisine from different regions including Cantonese, Shanghainese and Szechuan. Every dish is hand-crafted with great attention to detail. As visually appealing as everything is, taste is also not compromised by aesthetics. Classic dim sum items can be found (pork buns, dumplings, rice rolls) along with more unique items that you probably won’t find at other dim sum restaurants (pomegranate and kale salad, squid ink fried rice, oatmeal prawns).
