ChineseNew Year is one of our favourite times of year as it’s a great excuse to go to one of our favourite places in London: Yauatcha. With amazing dim sum, desserts and a relaxed vibe this is the perfect place for a full Chinese feast.
Yauatcha’s hard to beat for its steamed dim sum selection including scallop and pork which were spot on, as always. Our favourite though, and easily one of our top 5 dishes in London, is the prawn cheung fun – big juicy prawns wrapped in thin rice noodle and covered in soy sauce. For main courses we’d definitely recommend the beef ho fun and the pork belly with cloud ear mushrooms.
The restaurant is also famous for desserts and created two special ones for New Year: a caramelised sheep’s milk macaroon coated with oats and filled with dulce de leche and a limited ‘petit gateau’ which is a sheep’s yoghurt bavarois centred with lemon curd on a bed of lemon sponge and pandan buttercream.
For Chinese New Year, or anytime of year, Yauatcha is a winner.
