With New Year just around the corner, if you’re still fretting over what to have for reunion dinner or what can you cater for new year gathering, look around no more, Yum Cha to your rescue! More important or not, food are delivered in their specially imported Cook Tek Delivery Bag that can keep the food warm and moist, so the worry of you having to serve cold dishes can be cast away. Also, table clothes will be provided too. Together with other foodies, we get to try a couple of their scrumptious dishes off their Chinese New Year Takeaway Menu.
First dish is none other than the Salmon Yu Sheng ($38+/$68+). With the recent scares relating to salmon or some of the other raw fishes, Yum Cha reassures you by only using Salmon from Norway and AVA Certified Supplier that are safe for consumption. Something tasted a little unique in the Yu Sheng, and we came to know that, the sauces used were made by Yum Cha themselves, and there’s presence of dried orange peel which i thought was kind of unusual but it had definitely added colors and flavors to the plate of yu sheng. The shredded vegetables used were very fresh, sauces has a sweet and sour note and the flour crisps were crispy.
Another highlight of the night – BBQ Suckling Pig ($118+/$220+). One WOW factor for this suckling pig is definitely how the skin remains crackling for a take-away and consider the time we took to take all the food photos. The layer of crackling skin, fats and meat were well roasted and well segregated from one another. People like me who doesn’t like the fatty portion, can easily remove it from the skin and meat. If the meat is a little more juicy, it will be perfect!
Fried Crispy Chicken ($40+). I like how the skin is deep fried to crispy and non-fattening. The meat goes well with sweet thai chilli sauce. It will be better if the meat is more tender and juicy as it felt a little dry to me even at the thigh part which was a little disappointing.
I’m not a pig trotters person but the tender and almost melt in your mouth pork from Braised Pig Trotters with Fatt Choy ($38+) has totally win my heart and soul over. The braised stew was rich and flavorsome and the soft cabbage and fatt choy has almost locked in all the essence from the dish.
Fried Rice with Chinese Sausage in Lotus Leaf ($38+) was a little special with a hint of flavor and texture similar to that of glutinous rice wrapped in lotus. All the ingredients were chopped to small dices and stir fry together with hei bee, but the fragrance of hei bee and the accompanying ingredients seems to be missing in the dish. It’s a little dry overall too.
Ingenious creation from Yum Cha in packing their bottled drinks! It’s portable and easy for pouring.
