Yum Cha Restaurants recently launched their Chinese New Year takeaway menus where you can enjoy Yum Cha delicacies during your reunion dinner within the comforts of your home.When I saw the plate of Salmon Yu Sheng ($38+ for small; $68+ for large) before me, I was thrilled because I love to 'lo hei'! It's one of the fun parts of Chinese New Year when we shout our wishes and make a mess out of the whole plate.My first 'lo hei' of the year! I'm quite reserved when I do the 'lo hei' with other peop
When I saw the plate of Salmon Yu Sheng ($38+ for small; $68+ for large) before me, I was thrilled because I love to 'lo hei'! It's one of the fun parts of Chinese New Year when we shout our wishes and make a mess out of the whole plate. My first 'lo hei' of the year! I'm quite reserved when I do the 'lo hei' with other people I do not know well but with the family, trust me, I'm very expressive and messy.
Taste-wise, I found the Salmon Yu Sheng exceptionally delicious with a slightly sour taste that sat very well with my tastebuds. Apparently, Yum Cha makes their own sauce and the slightly sour taste came from Yum Cha's homemade sour plum sauce. On top of that, the salmon pieces were great complements to the Yu Sheng . The BBQ Suckling Pig ($220+ for whole) was heavenly and was by far my favourite dish of all.
The layer of skin was nice and crispy and interestingly, the meat wasn't as oily as I would have expected. I would say that the taste was also rather addictive and I had to restrain myself from taking another sinful but OH SO GOOD piece. Surprisingly, the Roasted Crispy Chicken ($40+ for Whole) wasn't that great for me.
It was a little tough for my liking but it could also be because the chicken was left in the open for a while and was no longer warm. Maybe I should try this again when it is freshly roasted. The Braised Pig's Trotter with Fatt Choy ($38+ for Half) was so-so for me, largely because I'm not a fan of Fatt Choy but I have to commend that the Pig's Trotter was very tender.
If you enjoy eating Fatt Choy, you will probably like this dish! The last dish we sampled was the Fried Rice with Chinese Sausage in Lotus Leaf ($38+).
This dish stood out for me because of its fragrance and its mild sweetness. I also loved the fact that there was a generous amount of ingredients hidden within the rice. Another dish that I had to restrain myself from over-eating simply because it was so damn addictive.
