Tucked away on the main street in Chatswood, you'll find Fook Yuen Seafood Restaurant, which is one of the most popular places for weekend yum cha on the North Shore.

Fook Yuen Seafood Restaurant is tucked away on the main street in Chatswood.

This is one of my favourite places for yum cha because the restaurant offers a wide selection of dim sum and the food quality is consistently good. What I like is that the dumpling skin is delicate and the ingredients are always fresh. Additionally, the staff are friendly as they would tell you attentively about what they have on their dim sum trolleys when they come over your table.

During my recent visit, I couldn't wait to order my all-time favourite dim sum - the pork dumpling (aka sui mai), the prawn dumpling with vegetables, Chu Chow dumpling (with peanuts as part of the ingredients!) and my most favourite white carrot cake.

The pork dumpling and Chu Chow dumpling are simply beautiful.

The Chinese carrot cake offered at this restaurant is the best I've ever had; they are deep-fried in such a way that the outlook is appealing, but they are not too oily or greasy. That's the beauty! They are especially tasty when you add a touch of chilly sauce onto them. While the price of the food is a bit premium, I just find that the food quality is above average.

White carrot cake is always my much-anticipated dim sum treat.

Although the restaurant is not very big, the large windows on the sides let in a lot of natural sunlight come through, making the dining area look bigger.

The large windows on both sides make the dining area look bigger.

For seating, it would be better to avoid taking those seats towards the far corner as it normally takes a while before the staff can pull the dim sum trolleys over that side.

Since this is a busy place on weekends, be prepared to queue up. Perhaps you can either come over here a bit earlier or a bit later so that you can avoid the waiting time.

Come and enjoy the dim sum treat at this great Chinese restaurant.
