Yum Cha Cafe
6933 Linda Vista Rd
San Diego, CA 92111
It's been a while since I did a post on Yum Cha Cafe, so i took some pictures on our last visit. You can read about my previous posts here and here. I enjoy going to Yum Cha because I can get dim sum even in the evening. Yum Cha is the only fast food cheap dim sum option that I've come across that actually has pretty good tasting dim sum items. Lately, Boyfriend and I have been visiting Yum Cha in the early evening. They still have food at the time and it's not crowded.
On our last visit, we picked up quite a few items to share with my siblings and took our order to go. This is what we got:
Brown sugar rice cake. Normally the version I have of this at dim sum
restaurants is white. The brown sugar tasted just as good.
Pineapple buns. These breads were just okay tasting. I liked the sugar crust, but the bread itself wasn't as soft.
Chinese egg tarts
Fried shrimp balls. These had been sitting out a while, so they
weren't that crunchy, but they were still filled with lots of shrimp.
Shrimp with rice noodles
Shrimp har gow
Rice balls with shrimp
Crystal shrimp dumplings. (I couldn't remember what this was called, but reader Jess left a comment reminding me what it is.) The outside skin is kind of clear colored and it is sticky and chewy.
Bean curd rolls
Beef honeycomb tripe
Shrimp shui mai
