Most people have the misperception that Yum Cha in Singapore is for the old age and that’s not the case. Many teenagers/young adults are into Yum Cha these days, especially so with the introduction of new and unique-flavoured Dim Sum. Personally, I love Yum Cha-ing with my family and friends (since I get to catch up with them over really interesting and tasty dim sums). For this Christmas, Yum Cha Singapore has come out with an adorable Christmas menu, featuring Christmas-themed dim sum which I couldn’t bear myself to eat them. It is the perfect place for you to celebrate Christmas if your family has a mixture of kids and elderlies. You can kill two birds with one stone by capturing the kids’ attention with the cute Christmas dim sum as well as satisfy the elderlies with the more traditional dim sum. So, wait no more and make a reservation today with Yum Cha!
The Christmas menu at Yum Cha definitely fits the Christmas theme. Can you spot the Snowman in this photo? Kids will love this! Available at all Yum Cha Outlets from 1st December 2017 to 1st January 2018, these dishes are exclusively to their menu and only in limited quantity, while stocks last.
PS: Yum Cha Members will enjoy 20% OFF on all Christmas Seasonal Dim Sum
Salted Egg Fish Skin with Crispy Silver Fish (150g) // $12.80+
Yum Cha also has a rendition of the Salted Egg Fish Skin and it comes with Crispy Silver Fish! Freshly made and sold everyday, this Salted Egg Fish Skin with Crispy Silver Fish is to die for. Salted egg flavour was really strong and fragrant, with a subtle spiciness at the end. Silver fish was a great complement. Very addictive!
Little Twin Piglets & Panda Bao // $1.90 each
These adorable buns come in different fillings. My favourites were Black Sesame, Lian Rong and Matcha. Kids will definitely love these!
Salted Egg Custard Bun *Christmas Exclusive // $4.50++ each
They were very generous with the amount of Salted Egg sauce in the bun. Salted Egg doesn’t tastes artificial and jelat. Bun was really soft. Good stuff!
Snowman Bao // $3.80++ each
These Snowman Bao are too adorable! I can’t bear to eat them. Again, fillings inside the bun was really good but the buns here are thicker.
Deep Fried Wasabi Duck Roll // $8.80++
The outer layer was really crispy and the duck was well-marinated. Only thing that I thought could be improved is perhaps adding a little bit more of wasabi into the roll or have a wasabi sauce as a condiment.
Braised Pig Trotter with Vinegar // $9.80++
This was really yummy. The pig trotter was really well-marinated, tender and juicy. Broth was well-cooked and flavourful, and with a well-balanced of sourness. I need a bowl of rice now!
Christmas Festive Combination // $8.80++
The Christmas Festive Combination comes with Five Spice Turkey Roll, Roasted Turkey Bun and Cranberry Spring Roll with Chicken Floss. My favourite was the Five Spice Turkey Roll (something like Noh Hiang) which was very flavourful and easy to eat. Roasted Turkey Bun was not too bad, especially the fillings but I thought the bun was too thick. Cranberry Spring Roll with Chicken Floss was a tad too sweet for me.
