Today we ventured out of the inner-north and made the long journey all the way up to the middle-north.
We went to Belconnen to have Yum Cha for lunch, and I ate so much I feel a little ill.
This is what I wanted.
The Yum Cha costs $22 a head, and I easily ate my $22 worth. There are items that are not included in that $22 and you need to be careful because the staff bringing the food around won’t necessarily tell you what is what, they’ll just keep offering you food.
The usual assortment of dumplings, pork buns, spring rolls, and various nibblies appeared at out table fairly regularly, and while no single item I tried turned out to be particularly noteworthy, none of it was bad.
We did order some items of food that never showed, and the aforementioned threat of accidentally picking up something that costs extra without being told was always looming, so the service could have been better. However on the other wise of the coin there was a reasonable sized group of us, and within moments of walking in we had been seated and were already being served hot food. So you take the good with the bad.
In the end I recieved a massive pile of decent Chinese for $22, so I can forgive the restaurant a few quirks.
Absolutely recommended if you’re feeling like pigging out on a budget.
