The King of Yum Cha Restaurants in Brisbane
When it comes to Yum Cha it must be said that King of Kings is in fact the king of Yum Cha in Brisbane's Fortitude Valley. 2005 saw King of Kings open its doors to the hungry masses who have continued their loyalty ever since.
Enter the much talked about Yum Cha restaurant, head up the stairs to the master banquet area and here you will see an array of tables filling the palatial dining hall. Symbolic of traditional and exotic Chinese cuisine the restaurant has a strong emphasis on local fresh seafood, which is present in many of the cart selections.

The Yum Cha menu consists of all the dumplings (fried and steamed) you can think of. One to definitely try is the prawn dumplings, they are succulent with a premium filling. There are the odd balls such as chicken feet in black bean sauce, snaps to anyone that can hoover these down as they don't particularly look appealing.

A standard on the menu is the Peking duck, which is crispy and juicy just as it should be. It is definitely up there, however my favourite duck would still have to be at Superbowl Chinese Restaurant in the valley which serve the best BBQ duck hands down that I have ever had.
Reasonably priced and continuous serviced carts at every corner make it very hard to miss a Yum Cha option, however does make for difficult conversation with the table when you are being stopped every five minutes by someone highlighting the carts options. I guess this is expected of Chinese cuisine, a lot of food and a lot of noise.
