A colourful array of pâtisserie opens the show in Yauatcha's ground-floor 'tea house', but in the basement dining room things are lively and loud. The menu impresses with its exciting blend of traditional Cantonese favourites and more intriguing contemporary compositions. Venison puffs are Wellington-style flaky pastry dim sum with notes of hoi sin, chilli and sesame, while traditionalists might stick with prawn and chicken siu mai dumplings. Larger plates also deliver exhilarating flavours, as seen in a dish of stir-fried scallops with lotus root or hakka-style pork belly with cloud ear mushrooms. Not normally a high point of the oriental repertoire, the creative fusion-style desserts here are a real treat.
