I love Dim Sum!!! Who doesn’t? When made the authentic way, the little delectable delights in mini bamboo steamer baskets are to die for! Okay ‘choi!’, don’t take the dying part in literal sense, but yeah! I just have a soft spot for Dimsum. :)

I just knew I HAD TO attend the media tasting of Yum Cha’s high-tea buffet menu at Chinatown, and it was perfect because they so generously included a plus-one as well, so I asked Hammy along. I don’t really like to attend food tasting sessions alone as I feel bad if I get to eat good food while Hammy stays at home to ‘eat maggie’. Haha but this was perfect. Thank you Ling and William for the invite! :)

Yum Cha dim sum buffet reviewBe assured that you will get the authentic Hong-Kong style dining experience at Yum Cha Chinatown. The push carts, wooden chairs and round marbled tables bring back good old nostalgia of Chinese tradition.

With over 80 items on the menu, customers will have plenty of choices to try all types of dim sum, be it traditional and contemporary. I want to share with you guys my favourites on their high-tea buffet menu!

– Take note of the MUST-TRIES! –

Steam Dim Sum

Yum Cha dim sum buffet reviewFish Roe Siew Mai: Not a big fan of siew mais but this one actually have more prawn than pork so those who prefer that as well should try this!

Yum Cha dim sum buffet reviewFresh Prawn Rice Flour Roll: Delicious! The smooth rice rolls dipped in savoury sauce, prized with crunchy shrimps. One of my favourite Dim Sums.

Scallop Pea-Shoot Dumpling: One of the chef’s special creations, this unique dumpling tastes so succulent and flavourful! 

Yum Cha dim sum buffet reviewBeancurd Roll with Superior Sauce: Juicy and tender shrimp wrapped in bean curd roll. This was really good as well!

Yum Cha dim sum buffet reviewAnother special Dim Sum.

Squid Ink Dumpling: This cute little dumpling is strangely enigmatic; instead of seasoned pork, it tastes of well-braised pork. Certainly something different and worth a try!

Yum Cha Prawn Dumpling “Har Gow”: This is a must-order at any Dim Sum meal, and if not done right it can be quite a turn-off. But Yum Cha’s Har Gow is pretty good!

Custard bun: Heaven!! ‘Nuff said.

Fried Dim Sum

Yum Cha dim sum buffet reviewCrispy Vegetarian Spring Roll: Yum Cha’s rendition of spring rolls substitutes the “mang guang'” with bean sprouts! That leads to a more crunchy bite.

Prawn and Mango Sesame Fritters: This is damn awesome! The perfect marriage between sweet soft mango and tender prawns. Yums!


15Baked Mini Egg Tarts: I didn’t manage to try this because by dessert time, I was already 99% full! But it looks good!

Crispy Red Bean with Banana: If you only have enough stomach space to try one dessert, this is it! Everyone present fell in love with this particular dessert. :0

Yum Cha dim sum buffet reviewOsmanthus Cake: Acquired taste as it has a herby taste. But the jelly is super soft and wobbly! And frankly jelly doesn’t take up space at all, so it’s a good and light dessert to give a good ending to ALL THAT Dim Sum earlier on!
