In China, few things are more important than breakfast or brunch.

For thousands of years, people have been congregating outside of dim sum restaurants, waiting with friends and family to indulge in yum cha once the doors open.

Yum cha, or the act of drinking tea and eating dim sum, has been a tradition enjoyed by everyone since the Song Dynasty. Nowadays, the custom is enjoyed across the world.

Yum Cha at Yauatcha City pays homage to this ancient culinary art with an exclusive menu only available on Sundays.

The menu showcases yum cha in a style reminiscent of Hong Kong teahouses: guests are able to tick the dishes they’d like off from the menu, which includes classic and contemporary dim sum, desserts and champagne, wine or a new Bloody Mary flight.

Priced at £29 per person for six dim sum, Yum Cha is available every Sunday until 22nd December from 10am until 4pm.
