The reason it is called breakfast is because you break the fast after the night. The reason it is called brunch is because it is a cross between breakfast and lunch, and the reason they call Yum Cha is because it is so deliciously yum.

We all like to make a big deal out of breakfast and dinner but when it comes to lunch we normally just settle for a sandwich. Well no more! Indulge in the following items:
- Steam beef balls - three pieces
Selected premium quality topside beef, minced in-house by our chef (to eliminate any unnecessary fat, grizzle etc) to give you this distinctive meaty flavour. Then it is mixed with selected Chinese herbs, hand spun tightly into a ball shape then it must be steamed to perfection as to preserve its unique texture and taste before serving. An all time favourite among Chinese people.
- Fried squid with spicy salt
Shredded premium quality squid coated in crispy gluten free batter with a subtle hint of oriental spice, deep fried to perfection. A must try if this is your first Yum Cha experience.
- Traditional Chinese donut - two pieces
A specially hand made dough done in the traditional manner, then it is rolled up into the form of a donut then deep fried to golden crisp. The different between this and the Kiwi style donut is this one is more fluffy and light and not as sweet and greasy. If you are serious about healthy eating, start with this one.
- Radish cake - three pieces
This should renamed to Diakon cake because Diakons is used instead of radishes. Daikon is a root vegetable white in colour occasionally available in supermarkets. It is cut into strips stirred fired with diced Chinese sausages. Then mixed in rice flour together with other seasonings into a paste form. After extensive steaming in our steam cabinet for approximately two hours. It is then cut into pieces and pan fried to golden brown on both sides before it is served. It is simply delicious to say the least.
