Food Review: Yum Cha Restaurant

Chinese New Year is coming! Have you thought of what to have for your reunion dinner? Yum Cha Restaurant has launched their CNY menu, and it doubles up as a takeaway/delivery menu too! I was privileged to try their takeaway menu items last week, where the food was delivered to a condominium function room. Here's what we had!

BBQ Suckling Pig
This was the centrepiece of the table. A huge suckling pig was layed out, all sliced and cut out into many even pieces.

The meat was really, really tender and fragrant. I don't eat the skin even though I know you're supposed to eat it (haha) but a lot of people said it was crackly and crispy. It certainly looked the part! It was a little cold by the time we ate it but I guess it's understandable since it's been left out for a while and we were busy snapping pictures hahaha. But considering that it's takeaway, this dish was pretty good!

Braised Pig's Trotter with Fatt Choy
Another pork dish here, the meat was also very tender and it fell off the bone easily. The Fatt Choy (black moss) was also yummy. The gravy was a little salty though.

Roasted Crispy Chicken
I enjoyed this dish because the chicken meat was flavourful, tender and succulent. It was topped with cereal.

Fried Rice with Chinese Sausage in Lotus Leaf
The fried rice was not bad, though lacking in wok hei possibly because it's takeaway. The Chinese sausage, also known as lap chiong, gave the dish more flavour, though it could have been cut in bigger pieces.

Salmon Yu Sheng
My second time at lo hei this year! If you're worried about consuming salmon sashimi, rest assured as the fish is sourced from Norway and it's definitely AVA-approved. The Yu Sheng was quite nice, and one noteworthy thing perhaps, is that they make their own sourplum sauce.

I think their takeaway concept is rather complete, and a lot of thought has gone into making sure that the food stays warm, presentable and tasty. Check out the cute drinks packaging at the top right of the photo above! If you're wondering how they pack and deliver the food, they use this huge bag (below) where there's some warmer thing inside that keeps the food warm. This technology is called 'cook tek', and makes the food stay warm for 2 hours.

If you'd like to have a sumptuous reunion dinner but not want to go through the tedious process of cooking, you can consider ordering this takeaway from Yum Cha! Other dishes include Braised Abalone with Dried Oysters and Fatt Choy, Roasted Crispy Pork Belly and more. Their CNY menus and takeaway menus will be available from tomorrow, 15 January to 22 February 2016. And here's a promotion!
