[ Mother's Day Dim Sum Specials at Yum Cha ]   This year's Mother's Day falls on 8 May, have you made any plans yet? Yum Cha, one of our local biggest dim sum player, came up with new Dim Sum items specially for this upcoming Mother's Day.    These specialty items, namely: [1] Braised Pork Belly with Preserved Mustard Green Bun 梅菜扣肉包 [2] Almond Tarts 杏仁挞 [3] Minced Pork Bun with Salted Fish 咸鱼猪肉包; were available from now till 14th May 2016.   The purpose of presenting these nostalgic items was to bring back some good old memories of food from our parents era.   [1] Braised Pork Belly with Preserved Mustard Green Bun 梅菜扣肉包 ($2ea) - Peeled open this bun and found myself a fatty slice of pork belly. There was more fats then meat, thus the achieved tenderness. Personally loved fats but it may not be a healthy choice for seniors. Pork belly was well marinated but preserved mustard green very bland to get any distinctive taste. *Rating: 3/5*     [2] Almond Tarts 杏仁挞 ($3.20/ 3pcs)   - Tarts' center fillings were really power packed with strong almond taste and could be overpowering if you had more than one. Fillings texture was soft like tofu but I love the crust part more as it was crispy and flaky. With a choice of having them hot or chilled, I chose the hot ones as I felt it brings out the flavour better. *Rating: 4/5*     [3] Pan -fried Salted Fish Bun 咸鱼猪肉包 ($5.00/ 3pcs) - Compared to the steamed 梅菜扣肉包, these pan fried ones flared better. Overall taste was good, with salted fish fragrance in each bite but flavour could be stronger. I believed more salted fish input will do the trick. *Rating: 4/5*     Other than these above mentioned specialty dim sum, we also had some of their usual signature dim sum selections together with mains from their dinner menu. The mains we had were all in large portions, suitable for 10pax.     [4] Steamed Prawn Paste with Fish Maw ($4.80/ 3pcs)   - The prawn paste were really fresh, firm with a little crunch from the prawn bits. Fish maw below the paste were steamed till soft and almost melt in the mouth. The accompanying golden gravy was flavorful with hints of sweetness too. *Rating: 5/5*     [5] Crispy Fried Tofu 七味脆皮豆腐 (Regular$16 M$24 L$32)   - Tofu, a very common ingredient on the table, was well executed and made into a unique dish here at Yum Cha. The highlights here were the 7 different elements used to make the orangey powder scattered on top of the tofu. Other than the obvious ones such as sesame and paprika powder, the rest of them were deemed secrets by the chef. Tofu were deep fried till very crispy batter, together with the secret powder, it gave off a unique taste combination of sweet, salty and the least spiciness. I love this but not its $32 price tag! *Rating 5/5*

Mother's Day Exclusive Menu!

Food/Drink 3 | Value 3 | Ambience 3 | Service 3
Total Reviews: 101 for full review with pics!

Wrecking your brain to see where you can bring your mum to for a sumptuous meal on Mother's Day? Look no further! If your mum like chinese fare and dim sum, bring her to Yum Cha this Mother's Day. 3 exclusive items made available from 1st - 14th May for the Mother's Day period.

(Mother's Day Special) Braised Pork with Preserved Vegetables Bun ($2/pc) - A good balance of fats and meat with savoriness from preserved vegetables wrapped with warm and soft steamed bun. All is good but for a thin film of coat at the exterior of the bun that was a little off the usual softness.

(Mother's Day Special) Pan Fried Salted Fish Bun ($5/3pcs) - With bottom of the bun seared to golden brown and flavorful filling made from salted fish paste and minced meat. Overall taste is light but with a distinct salted fish note. Definitely suit the palette of a salted fish lover.

(Mother's Day Special) Almond Tarts ($3.20/3pcs) - Filled the core with sweet almond custard against the soft, flaky crusty tart. The custard is brimming with sweet almond flavor. It can be served chilled or warm.

Tim sum buffet!

This is the place that I will always go to whenever my friends or family would like to have Tim sum buffet. Take note that their Tim sum buffet if I remember correctly is only available at certain timings of the day and you might need to make a reservation as well. If you do manage to get a seating to dine in here for their Tim sum buffet, do try out as much Tim sum as possible. They offer all the usual stuff and once in a while, there will be service staff pushing the food trolley around where you can just grab and eat on the spot. (Usually it is all the Fried stuff they is inside the food trolley) For the price, this place is worth it.
