"Yum Cha" at YUE


"Yum Cha" is a Cantonese term that translates to "drinking tea" in Guangdong. Traditionally, it involves the elderly gathering to enjoy dim sum after their morning exercises, reading newspapers and engaging in conversations. "Yum Cha" outings often occur in large groups as a focal point for family gatherings, holidays, and celebrations. At its core, "Yum Cha" embodies the Cantonese way of life, representing a culinary tradition of sipping Chinese tea while relishing small servings of diverse foods. We've incorporated the renowned "Yum Cha" concept into our new 3.0 menu, complemented by a fine dining dessert cart and petit four concepts. "Dining in Guangzhou 3.0" offers a distinctive and delightful dining experience that infuses the menu with the essence of traditional and classic Cantonese cultural lifestyle while providing an extraordinary modern Cantonese cuisine experience.
