Michelin star restaurant, Yauatcha is celebrating Chinese New Year with their special menu. Inviting all the food lovers to their wonderful luxurious experience, Yauatcha offered the Chinese new year specially curated menu.

Our food experience for Chinese New year celebration at Yauatcha, we started with their dim sums. 

  • Truffle and English carrot dumpling (325) – These were specially curated for the Chinese new year dim sums which later became the part of the menu. The wonderful English combination has been just amazing.
  • Kiwi and black olive dumpling (325) – We were a little excited to find such a combination in a dumpling and were eagerly looking forward to taste it. Unfortunately, we got to know that it was not being liked by the guests and thus has been discontinued from the menu. We wonder how it would have tasted to be discontinued.
  • Corn, carrot and curry dumpling (325) – Again a wonderful combination of ingredients, where corn being one of our favorites. Being little on a sweeter side, but tangy and perfectly steamed, these dim sums are sure going to be a sure shot hit.IMG_2701

We also opted to our all-time favorite soup at Yauatcha – The Sweet Corn Soup, which is only available at this place. While moving ahead for the main course, we chose the following:

  • Stir-fry mock chicken in the Hunan Style Spicy Sauce (395) – Unlike the name suggests as “chicken”, Yauatcha uses soya as the mock chicken which is cooked in spice sauce with vegetables along with it.
  • Toban Fried Rice (550) – These are the authentic Chinese fried rice, which is prepared in the aromatic toban sauce which is made using fermented beans.
  • Mahlak Udon Noodle (750) – We didn’t try these, but these are flat noodles with mixed vegetables in it.

With such a different and authentic Chinese, it was a perfect start of the Chinese New Year for us with Yauatcha.  IMG_2704

To satisfy our sweet tooth, we tried their Crunchy Caramel with honeycomb ice cream (350). Crunch with the soft creamy ice cream and sweetness of caramel made it just perfect.

Happy Cooking!
