It was great to stumble across yum cha at around lunchtime in Sydney recently at the Fat Buddha Chinese Restaurant at the Queen Victoria Building.

And the decor is just stunning. It feels homely the moment you walk in, and it is refreshing to sit down and have a quality lunch at a quieter yum cha for a change without the full on noise, and the trolleys of food come around more frequently as well, hence more choices are available. Even though the food does not look appealing visually (hence why photos of the food itself did not cross my mind at the time, sorry) the taste is definitely something else. The dumplings are perhaps a little too thick, however the fillings are fresh and flavoursome; especially the prawns as well as the spinach and peas.

Last but not least, for many people yum cha is not complete if it isn't for the dessert. Although I passed on the jelly and the mango pancakes, it was great to see custard tarts and other little delicacies. Just went for the custard tarts, and the custard did not have any lumps in it, and was the perfect way to complete the Fat Buddha experience for now. There is something about the name that calls for a feast, and with a couple more people with me next time; the yum cha experience here will truly rock.
