Yauatcha the Michelin star Chinese dimsum and tea house from London opened its doors for Indian markets a couple of years back in Mumbai, Bengaluru and New Delhi. The chain has certainly made a reputation of serving authentic Chinese cuisine with the best quality ingredients, combined with sublime hospitality. The New Delhi outlet is located in a corner of the second level of Ambiance mall, Vasant kunj. The décor is simple yet classy with shades of grey and a dim tone warm white lighting.
The restaurant is celebrating the Chinese New Year with a limited edition specially curated menu with an array of dimsums, mains, exotic cocktails and desserts to pick from. The dinner started with a well blended concoction of gin, mandarin, cointreau and garnished with maraschino cherries, THE CHERRY CHASER. Non vegetarians usually do not like the vegetarian dimsums but TRUFFLE AND CARROT DUMPLING, CORN; CARROT AND CURRY DUMPLING will surely be appreciated. The non veg dimsums offered are SEA FOOD SHUI MAI, LOBSTER HO FUN ROLL with BLACK PEPPER SAUCE and CHICKEN AND CORIANDER DUMPLING which are decadently delicious.
In the mains, BRAISED PORK BELLY WITH CIGAR MONTOU ROLLS is a dish highly recommended, succulent chunks of juicy pork tossed in yellow bean sauce accompanied with crunchy Chinese steamed bread. In the staples one must try the TOBAN FRIED RICE, which are a bit crispy and tossed with corn and Chinese veggies. You can also MAHLAK UDON NOODLES which are flat noodles cooked with gravied vegetables which turned out to be our favourite amongst the mains.
The meal ended on a sweet note with one of the most fabulous dessert we had in recent times, CRUNCHY CARAMEL WITH HONEYCOMB VANILLA ICE CREAM. Chocolate mousse covered with a layer of gooey caramel served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. One may choose from a variety of displayed desserts placed in a show counter on the entrance of the restaurant.
Authentic Chinese food is hard to find in a city full of flashy cafes and bars, if you are lover of this cuisine then do visit Yauatcha between 25th Jan 2016 to 23 rd feb 2016 and be assured to have a culinary experience worth trying.
