Yesterday Sister got some wonderful news regarding her future as a doctor, so the two of us went to celebrate at Yum Cha Silks and Spice in Camden Town where their Dim Sum is very, very popular and equally as tasty.
As both of us our vegetarians, our options were limited to only their meat-free dishes. However in the case of Yum Cha ‘limited’ doesn’t mean one dish only. It meant many and as we were both starving, we tried almost all.
Neither of us particularly wanted alcohol we both had non-alcoholic cocktails. I opted for the Mokoko with passion fruit, pineapple juice, mango juice and coconut cream, and Sister had a Strawberry Daiquiri with strawberries, grenadine and orange juice. They went down an actual treat.
The dishes we ended up trying Steamed Broccoli in Garlic Sauce, Vegetarian Bun, Spicy Vegetable Dumplings, Steamed Chinese Green in Oyster Sauce, Steamed Vegetarian Dumpling, and Steamed Chinese Broccoli in Ginger Oyster Sauce.
Out of them all both Sister and I especially loved the Spicy Vegetable Dumplings, though anything with ginger is a hit with me.
I think it was a very good thing that we ordered dessert with the mains as by the time we had devoured everything savoury we were stuffed. Yet having Sweet Custard Buns in front of us, staring at us, tempting us, it was only our duty to finish them. After all, wasting food – and at that such tasty food – is never an option for us. And i am so glad that we did eat them. They were delicious and the perfect way to end a lovely meal.
