Yauatcha

15 Broadwick Street, LONDON, W1F 0DL

2 rosettes

A contemporary dim sum tea house, is how Yauatcha describes itself, and the tea house side of things greets you on the ground floor with an amazingly colourful array of pātisserie. Down in the basement, however, things take a more glamorous turn, with bare brick walls studded with crucifix-shaped candle-lit mirrors, low-slung green leather banquettes at darkwood tables and a long, slim, illuminated fish tank (its occupants are not on the menu). Staff are well versed in the extensive menu, which impresses with its excellent ingredients and intriguing blend of traditional Cantonese favourites and more esoteric contemporary compositions. Venison puffs are Wellington-style flaky pastry dim sum with notes of hoi sin, chilli and sesame, while more hardcore foodies might go for chicken feet in chilli black bean sauce. Larger plates also deliver full-throttle flavours - witness braised Somerset lamb with black pepper sauce, or for fish fans, there may be braised sea bass with shiitaki, bamboo shoots and wolfberry. Tea smoothies, unusual iced tea combinations and off-the-wall cocktails are the on-trend tipples of choice.
