Food Review: High Tea Buffet at Yum Cha


It always a good catch up with a close friend. Bring my mei for a high tea buffet at Yum Cha.

Yum Cha got a good history! 

Yum Cha Restaurant first opened its doors in the heart of Chinatown. Yum Cha first started out in 2000 near Temple Street, Chinatown, with the aim of bringing back the dim sum tea house concept in a shophouse setting, with marble tables and wooden chairs for a nostalgic feel. Away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Yum Cha Restaurants offer a unique dim sum dining experience.
Famed for its large variety of dim sum, ranging from traditional recipes such as Fish Roe with Siew Mai and Xiao Long Bao, to some of our chef’s modern creations, such as Mango Prawn Sesame Fritters and Squid Ink Dumplings. Yum Cha Restaurants have also extended their menu to include in favourite local items and seafood dishes, such as their Salted Egg Prawns and Roasted Peking Duck.
With the same original theme at Chinatown, the branch at Changi Business Park used the same marble tabletops and solid teak chairs. The usage of red colour and concrete walls help to keep the ambience contemporary and inviting. Customers can also enjoy traditional Hong Kong roast meats along with their dim sum. An embodiment of the very essence, taste and character, Yum Cha continues to be a popular icon in Singapore.

We ate almost 2/3 of the dish in the menu! What we like and which dish we dislike:

Good and worth the try:
Siew Mai
Daily Soup (Check with the waitress), what we had was old melon boiled chicken soup
Fried Carrot Cake
Century Egg Porridge
Xiao Long Bao (Our Top Favourite)
Almond Tea (Dessert)
Fried Banana with red bean (Dessert)

Alright - Worst Dish:
Beancurb Skin with filling
Jiu Chye Dumpling
Prawn Dumpling (Skin too thick)
Scallop Dumpling
Shark fin dumpling (Taste like fishcake)
Steamed Pork Ribs (Worsr dish - Don't Order)

My Verdict:
Yum Cha restaurant was worth a try and their dim sum overall was good. Lets bring your family over and try it out.
