While dumplings or dim sums might be just a ball of dough, filled with some vegetables or meat, for some, it is no less than an addiction for some (including myself). Steamed, fried or baked, the variety of dim sums is endless, which is what makes this beautiful dish, absolutely perfect to binge on to!
If your cravings for some mouthwatering dim sums are at an all time high, then fret not, because the Michelin starred dim sum teahouse from London, Yauatcha, is all geared up to bring you something special this Chinese New Year on 28th January.
To celebrate the year of the rooster, Yauatcha has curated a limited edition menu, that is replete with some interesting dim sums along with some main course dishes and their drool-worthy desserts, that will surely make your day extra special!
While there are plenty of options to choose from, both in the vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian menu, a few of the them are certainly the show stealers. The meat lovers shouldn’t miss on to the beautiful purple hued chicken coriander dumpling. The moist and juicy chicken and prawn sui mai can be given a try, but the sesame prawn toast shouldn’t be missed at any cost. Crisp toast, topped with a juicy and perfectly cooked prawn that is covered in white sesame seeds! The vegetarians wouldn’t be disappointed a bit as Yauatcha has some great options to choose from. The poached peking dumpling would be the winner in the current weather, but my all time favourite, fried turnip cake with vegetables is a must have.
After devouring the dim sums, if you have some space left for the main course, jump onto the stir fried beans with shiitake mushrooms, that have a beautiful crunch, that go along well with some spicy vegetable fried rice. Though I’d anyday opt for sliced lamb in black pepper sauce and stir fry ho fan noodles, both of which are packed full of flavour, and hence, become a must have here!
Since it’s imperative to end meal on a sweet note, on the occasion of Chinese New Year, Yauatcha has come up with two delicate desserts, both of which are a delight to the eyes, as well as to the palette. The liquorice flavour of the luxe gateaux with sherry and raisin ice cream might do the trick for you, but it was the chocolate pebble that was demolished on sight by me. Dark chocolate mousse, chocolate brownie and a liquid chocolate centre, the richness of chocolate pebble was being mellowed down with the milk sorbet. This dessert is made with 65% amazonian-peruvian chocolate is everything that a choco-holic can dream of!
Confession: The limited edition menu for the Chinese New Year at Yauatcha is complete with some great food options to choose from. The polite and swift service, simplistic and fuss-free interiors paired with some amazing food, will make 28th January extra special.
