Folks, you come to Yu Chu for the all you can eat Dim Sum lunch! This is quite possibly the best dim sum experience I've had (definitely top 3).
For approximately $20US, you can order as much as you want off their menu, and they will cook to order. For those used to carts rolling around, this isn't it. It takes a bit of getting used to, having to time your orders so that you don't have dead time waiting for your next course.
Those who aren't used to the level of personnel... get used to it, it's a SE Asian thing. They're there to serve you.
Between my dad and I, we pretty much went through one side of the menu, then the other. We enjoyed everything we ordered, except for the baked meat pastry (too dry). If I had to pick highlights:
- Braised pork spare ribs
- Xiao long bao (juicy dumplings)
- Potstickers (some of the best I've ever had)
- Chicken feet
DO NOT pass on the mango pudding for dessert... I wanted to forgo it after being stuffed, but the friendly server insisted I try it, as it was a little bowl. I agreed... cool, smooth, light sprinkled with palmelo bits. Not only did I finish it, I had another!
I will agree that, while it's an open kitchen, not much is going on in there, especially for the lunch time. I enjoyed my seat by the window, overlooking the hustle and bustle of the street below.
I'm going back for sure.
