I went to Yautcha through RWI on a Sunday afternoon. The place was way unexpectedly crowded and loud and that pretty much ruined the ambience for me.
I had many kinds of dumplings for appetizers, like the vegetable chui chow dumpling, the crystal dumpling, poached pecking dumpling but my absolute favourite was the truffle Edamame dumpling. It had a soft consistency and a smooth texture and the flavour was really unique. The rest of the dumplings though were average and I would say overpriced I was paying a la carte.
I did not enjoy the turnip cake at all! Would not recommend it to anyone.
I loved the mixed veg salad, it had a really elegant quality to it.
For the main course I would recommend corn rice and aubergine sato bean okra. Both of them combined and even individually were par excellence. They had a flavour unlike any other I have had before, and each and every bite was enjoyable! Vegetarian ho fan noodles were pretty good too.
The Szechuan tofu clay pot was average and same goes for the stir fry ramen noodles.
And finally the desserts, the best part of the meal and the reason for the 4.0 rating.
My favourite was their sesame and sea salt caramel moon cake with Jasmine tea Ice cream. The ice cream was definitely one of the best ice creams I have ever had. And I'm not just throwing around big statements like that, the ice cream really was the show stealer of the while meal!
I also liked the Coffee Hazelnut Pave, it's the perfect dessert for a coffee lover. I'm not a fan of coffee but then I ate this dessert...ting ting ting ting.. Now I'm a believer.
I had heard a lot about the Raspberry delice, it looked amazing too and it was good but didn't quite meet my expectations.
The service was amazing! I was seated quickly and the tables were cleared promptly leaving behind a lavender fragrance with every cleaning.
All in all, a pretty good experience.
