No doubt about it: we’re in the grips of some sort of yum cha feeding frenzy right now. FIGO started doing Italian ‘yum cha’ (to the dismay of old-school Nonnas everywhere), and now Hanoi Hannah has created their own vampire-lycan hybrid.
They’re about to launch ‘Vietnamese yum cha Sundays’ at Hanoi Hannah New Quarter in Richmond. It’s all kicking off on 2 September (Father’s Day).
So what does Vietnamese yum cha look like? Trollies of little bites, mostly. You can stack your plate as high as you want. HH’s famous pho cuon will be making an appearance, along with crispy pork belly on vermicelli noodles, soft shell crab salad with chilli caramel and rotating bao buns.
There’ll be 10 dishes all up, priced from $6 to $12, so go nuts. You can even add a ‘bottomless brunch’ option for $39pp, which gets you two hours of unlimited Aperol Spritz, beer or mimosas.
As with ordinary yum cha, you’ve gotta be tactical. Pick your battles. Don’t try and be a hero. Identify three or four key dishes and focus your energies on defeating as many plates as possible.
Get woke, you guys. Here are 5 ethical fashion labels you should be rocking this month.
