Exceptional Pan-Asian Food at Yum Yum Cha, SELECT Citywalk

The restaurant that took the city by storm and created so much of buzz because of its food, that restaurant proves to be going strong even after all these months. With food that's incredible and a menu that you cannot get tired of ordering from, Yum Yum Cha is my most favourite Pan Asian restaurant in Delhi!

Select CITYWALK has some of the best restaurants that you can find under one roof, and the different cuisines that these restaurants have is just an added bonus. The central location of this place works too much in its favour, and it was a very good decision to open Yum Yum Cha here.

It is an open restaurant, just like Johnny Rockets right next to it is, but this is not something that would deter customers from coming here. In fact, it does not bother people at all. They can seat quite a few people there, and reservations keep coming in throughout the day (not phone reservations, but only where people would have to wait outside the restaurant). The interiors are very lively, very cute, and there's a lot of origami around you.

Their menu consists of appetizers, sushi, meals in a bowls, some gravies, rice, noodles, desserts and a fair range of mocktails.

Their sushi is absolutely exemplary! The Dynamite Sushi rolls, consisting on prawn tempura for that extra crunchiness, spicy mayo for the superb kick, and salmon for the stuffing, is simply out of the world! They have one of the best sushi in Delhi! Coming from the house of Yum Yum Tree and Varun Tuli, this ought to be true. 

Prawn Hargao dimsums, on the recommendation of the server, was just too good to be true. The paper thin coating of the dimsums with the deliciously stuffed prawns inside, and the five dipping sauces, was just mind-blowing!

Sliced Garlic Chicken was that perfect option for appetizers, something that people with all kinds of taste buds would like. It had nothing it could go wrong with. Chicken tossed in a delicious garlic-y sauce with some spring onions to seal the deal. Yummy as hell!

Chicken and water chestnut spicy basil and chilli sizzling sticky rice - Read each word of the dish very carefully, and then imagine articulating the same in a dish. The dish had everything the name talks about! It was a meal in a bowl kind of concept with sizzling sticky rice served in a hot pot with basil, corn kernels. tofu, chicken shreds, and peanuts. I asked them to do away with the peanuts for this one. The dish came 'sizzling' on the table, and the server then mixed the contents with the rice for us, so as to have a nice uniform portion of each of the components in each bite. The rice sizzled as he mixed them, and the end result was nothing short of brilliant. Delicious to the core! A pure heart soulful meal in a bowl!

For dessert I've only tried their Belgian Chocolate Cheesecake and have been meaning to try the Mochi icecream for quite some time now. The cheesecake was just superlative! Very very satisfying!

Their mocktails, known as 'fun bottles', are something that deserve a special mention. Have tried three of them- Black Magic (with coke and mint leaves), Thai Orange and Kaffir Lime (as the name suggests) and Watermelon and Mint (as the name suggests). Out of these three, Orange and Kaffir Lime is my favourite because of my most favourite flavour ever- kaffir lime. However, all of the flavours are simply out of this world! Too too refreshing, too delicious.

The pricing is not on the higher side, and for the food you get at this price, it's worth every single buck. The service is extremely prompt, the presentation of the food is killer, the decor is bright and lovely. What more do you need in a place? It's a must must visit for all. Do not miss having the food at this stupendous place - it really will sweep you off your feet!
