Yauatcha, Delhi [Review]

Yauatcha is a famous dim sum & tea house place hailing from London. With its first in Delhi at Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj & third restaurant in India, first & second being Mumbai and Bengaluru, respectively.

Pronounced as yau-aatchaa, which doesn’t have any literal meaning but is made up of three words Yau, the surname of the founder i.e. Alan Yan & Cha meaning tea in Chinese.

The restaurant aims to unfold a gastronomical story by presenting authentic Cantonese dishes with a modern twist. There’s an array of sumptuous dim sums and steaming teas – but leave room for improvement in the main course section.

It boasts 24 varieties of tea from around the world .  The green tea we had tasted  was different from other teas available at non-Michelin starred restaurants. And the Duck salad went well with Jasmine green tea. They also have signature mocktails and cocktails.

But the one we liked  the most was the ‘The Lalu’ – It is a vodka-based cocktail that is made pairing oolong tea, lychee juice and lemon grass—not too strong on the alcohol contents and not too sweet on the fruit compounds. It’s perfectly balanced with most food items on their menu. The next best was the Lichii martini & Kiwi lime iced team

Now the starters. We tried their Chicken corrainder, Prawn sui mai, Vegetable shanghai , Waterchetnut & Satake Dumplings They clearly reflected the artistry and silken touch that goes into making.  Bursts of delicate taste, straight from the bamboo steamers. These starters were the clear winner with melt-in-the-mouth quality – each bite echoing perfection.

When it comes to the main course section, there is an extensive menu to choose from. If you are a vegetarian, a meat-lover or crazy for sea-food, there is something in store for all

Try crispy prawn cheung fun, stir fry udon noodles in black pepper sauce or crispy duck roll. It’s soft from the outside and crispy from inside, swimming in soya, with piece of flavorful soya sauce. The egg fried rice and the stir-fry chicken in schezwan with light sauteed pak choi greens were also very delicate & fresh.

Instead of rice you can also try The Ho Fan Noodles. This is a vegetarian delicacy made of flat rice-noodles, tossed in sweet chilli sauce, prepared with sprouts, vegetables and mock meat.

If you’re a vegetarian then you can order The moba Tofu – a mildly spicy vegetarian dish flavored with a special sauce that is prepared with broad bean paste, scallion, mushrooms and garlic, amongst other ingredients.

Sweet dreams are made of these.

Must order Rasberry delice, Chocolate hazelnut moose & Luxe gateau. You’ll fall in love with these desserts. Highly recommened!

Dining at Yauatcha Delhi  was a wonderful experience. The presentation of all the dishes was very creative. It was visual treat.
