Yum Cha RestaurantWednesday, April 02, 2014
Yum Cha (which means "drinking tea" in Cantonese) is a Chinese tradition that is similar to having brunch or high tea, minus ...
I don't think I have ever mentioned this, but dim sum is one of my favourite comfort food. The endless varieties leave me spoilt for choice and the fact that they always come in small bite-sized portions make them absolutely perfect for fussy eaters like me who love to try a little bit of everything.
A wave of nostalgia hit me when I sat down as it was only then that I realized that the waitresses here continue to serve dim sum the good old fashion way, by pushing wooden dim sum carts from table to table while patrons like you and I peered into the glass display to place our orders.
