AU2011 - The Eight

Interestingly, unlike most Chinese restaurants that offer Yum Cha, and thus calling their menu the Yum Cha menu, The Eight’s menu is more appropriately named the Dim Sim menu.



Claim to be Sydney’s largest and most exclusive contemporary Chinese restaurant, we decided to check out this newly opened Yum Cha or Dim Sim venue.



In addition to the pot of Chrysanthemum Tea (otherwise, it wouldn’t be Yum Cha without the Cha), …



… among the Dim Sims (or Dim Sums, since Dim Sim is actually a Chinese-inspired Australian food) that we ordered included the Lo Mai Gai, glutinous rice with chicken wrapped in lotus leaf, …



… Won Ton, steamed dumpling with pork, prawn and mushrooms, …



… Chun Guen, deep fried spring rolls, …



… Siu Mai, traditional Chinese pork dumplings, …



… Har Gow, traditional Chinese prawn dumplings, …



… and lastly, the Char Siu Bao, Cantonese barbequed-pork-filled bun.



Since the main focus of a Yum Cha restaurant has shifted to the food, and no longer the tea, I reckon every restaurant should just rename Yum Cha to Dim Sim or Dim Sum. LOL!!
