My mom loves dim sum as much as I do. What better place to take her on Mother’s Day than to a dim place! Okay so how do you even pronounce this restaurant’s name? I had called the restaurant on the way there because we were late for our reservation, and when listening to their recording — it’s YAW-AH-CHA. So now that we have that covered, I thought this blog post would be helpful because there isn’t any photos of the food and some of the items have their own names. Here’s what we got!
The crab and sweet corn soup. I was expecting to be more like a corn chowder but it tasted more like a bird’s nest soup. Good to try but I don’t think I’d order again.
This cheung fun tho! My mom loves shrimp look fun. They call it cheung fun here, and this was THE best dish of the entire meal! Shrimp and bean curd cheung fun with light shoyu.
Scallop shui mai. Okay. Shrimp and Chinese chive dumpling. Okay.
XLB! I haven’t had these since Din Tai Fung. Here it’s called Shanghai siew long bun. Enjoyable but didn’t have as much broth as I would like.
Roasted duck pumpkin puff. So cute! The outside has an almost manju consistency and the inside has soft duck and pumpkin. It was yummy!
Crispy prawn dumpling with plum sauce. These were awesome! And look at them! They reminded me of when Lady Gaga came out at the VMA’s that one time and wore a red crown hat.
This was a special Mother’s day desert, it was a ginger explosion in your mouth. I forget what was in it exactly, but there was rose and ginger also a ginger ice cream.
I was eyeing this beauty when I was looking at the dessert case at the entrance of the restaurant. This Cassis grand macaron was good! Tart from the cassis and not too sweet, but creamy.
The scenery is dreamy at this place too! I love the clover decor and the blue panels in the outdoor seating area. Will definitely be back!
