Yum Cha has two locations in Hong Kong at the moment; one in Central and one in Tsim Sha Tsui. We went to the Tsim Sha Tsui location on a weekday, around 12pm. The restaurant was fairly empty when we went, but it very quickly filled up within the hour. The crowd was a mix of corporate workers on their lunch break, young families and tourists. Even when it got very busy, the staff were still very quick and attentive.
Everything we had was very tasty. It was hard to choose a favourite, but we all loved the crab roe puffs the most. This is a part of their seasonal menu (featuring many "hairy crab" dishes, which ends at the end of November 2016). I also loved the pineapple puffs (the birds in the cage), beetroot fried rice and the pomegranate curly kale salad. Every dish on the menu is created with fresh and quality ingredients with no MSG added. Between the three of us, we had 8 dishes in total. Everything sounded (and looked) so good though that I wanted to try everything on the menu! As each was brought out (even for the neighbouring tables), I was always excited to see the way it was presented. Everything was very unique and we couldn't stop snapping photos.
The interiors were also beautifully furnished with a relaxing atmosphere. We all really loved it there and highly recommend it if you are in Hong Kong, or ever visiting there! I will definitely return next time I am in the city.
BBQ Piggy Buns! I like how there wasn't a lot of pork filling inside so that it doesn't completely fill you up.
As I am a huge dessert lover, I wanted to try so many more desserts on the menu. Here is a photo from the menu. Next time I want to try the cotton candy thing. The table behind us ordered these and there was liquid nitrogen spilling out..so cool!
Lastly, a very funny sign in the washroom.
