I remember my first Yum cha experience at Singapore. In middle of China town, was a small restaurant called Yum Cha where lunch would be buzzing with people to experience Yum Cha. Unlimited 40 varieties of dimsums and pork buns served on trolleys with hot tea. I can still distinguishingly remember the jingle of the bell of the trolley as the Dim Sum lady passed by.My favorite was of course Char Siu Bao (barbequed pork buns ) and Xiā jiǎo (crystal clear shrimp dim sums).
Over the years, Bao and dimsums went on to become comfort food and Sheraton Hyderabad gave us the perfect opportunity to try the Yum Cha experience right here at Inazia. Chef Ninja ensures the Asian flavors are intact and brings out the unique authentic flavors right here in Hyderabad. Inazia offered variety of Yum Cha on your table and as their tagline simply put it across as “A whole lot of Yum and a little bit of Cha”.
We decided to sample our all-time favorite and started with Chun Guen. These fried spring rolls with vegetable and glass noodle were crispy and with a little dip of the sweet chilli and they were the most wanted dish on the table already. We moved on to bok choy which again was cabbage with oyster sauce. We then moved on to Ji Rou Shao Mai, a simple steamed chicken dumpling.
They also have an option of set menu along with dimsums and we started with hot and sour soup. Although I personally hate the spicy hot soups, these were balanced flavors and I managed to finish my bowl. If you love the flavor of the sea, do try the zicai danhua tang which is seaweed and egg soup.
For main course, we had the sichuan qiang chao ju ting. The stir fried chicken was served in sichuan sauce and complemented shu cai chao main which is stir fried noodles with vegetable with a generous helping of garlic. The ever famous x.o. chao fried rice with shrimp can be accompanied with you zha ta yu, a fried fish dish made with a base of chilli sauce.
The lunch ended with tian mi mi. These decadent homemade crispy honey noodles with a side of ice-cream makes for a great palate cleanser after a superb meal.
You can choose from 7 varieties and get 12 (3 varieties) starting at Rs. 750++ or the set menu at Rs. 1600++.
