Yum Cha Heaven

18 Mar

So with some lovely friends in tow I had my first adventure in Yum Cha since I was about 6 years old.  Some would say 20-something years without Yum Cha is a travesty, and I would have to agree with them!

We decided on visiting Gold Leaf chinese restaurant in Burwood East on a recommendation from one of the group.

We went to the 11am session on a Saturday morning and thankfully I had the good sense to book a table in advance. When I arrived I found that the car park was close to full, with many people running inside when the doors opened.

I was completely mesmerised by the decor and general atmosphere of the restaurant, I simply could not wait for my friends to arrive!

One of the people in the group found that he was quite excited whenever the food came past so the options on the lazy susan were constantly changing.

I was scared that there would be scant options in the vegetarian department, so I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that I could order additional items that weren’t on the trolleys, and that there were a few options floating around the place anyway.

My happy moments of the meal were the abundance of jasmine tea, chinese custard doughnuts, and the chinese egg tart. Anyone would think that I like custard…..

I was pleasantly surprised at how fun and amazing an experience Yum Cha could be, and decided that this would be a great option to take my Mum out for mother’s day this year.

In fact I am looking for any opportunity to visit this place again and I hope it does not take another 20 years to have Yum Cha again.
