Yum Cha at Langham Place (Hong Kong)

Yum Cha serves traditionally dim sum and Chinese cuisine with a contemporary twist. The food is visually crafted and quite adorable to look at too. It certainly was a feat for the eyes as well as the stomach when we ended our day at the Yum Cha in Langham Place, Mongkok. We quite literally stumbled across the restaurant as we were  exploring what was open of the Langham Place Mall during a typhoon warning, and other that the food establishments nothing much was open. Yum Cha has 3 locations - Tsim Sha Tsui, Mongkok and Central.

While the prices weren't exactly cheap, they were still reasonable for a restaurant and the food was soo cute! When we arrived we had to take a number, but since there was not much of a queue we were seated within minutes of taking our number.

The restaurant was brightly lit and the decor a mix of industrial contemporary and splashes of rustic, alternating between grey colored sofas and warm wooden chairs for seating, and the ceiling was pretty much industrial with the pipes and vents artistically displayed.

Now onto the food, between the 4 of us (and despite having eaten practically the way day earlier) we managed to eat the following:

Cute looking custard buns at HK$49 for 3 pcs and the adorable baked pineapple puffs in the shape of little birds at HK$59. The former is stuffed with piping hot liu sha, while the latter is filled with pineapple fillig wrapped in a little cute bird package.

While the birds look adorable, the pastry was a little too dry for my liking but the pineapple filling was just nice; not too sweet and had the right amount of bite to it.  It's novel but a little too pricey, still it is fine to try it at least once.

Green bean with salted egg yolk (HK$99): This is a must try dish, though a tad pricey, but the crunch and freshness of the green beans combined with the salted egg yolk was simply addictive. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

Fried turnip cakes with chili, dashes of bean sprouts and slices of fried lotus roots which tasted like crunchy potato chip.

Mala beef: they weren't kidding when they said mala, totally mind blowing spicy that numbed the senses. It really wasn't for me but though who like their spicy might like this dish.

Now for some food fun...

Overall, it was a fun dining experience and the food was quite nice too; worth the trip down (or to any or the other outlets). Service was on point and quite pleasant too. And with that, our day of feasting concluded as we made our way back to the hotel.
