A brief history of yum cha, by the best restaurant in Zetland

Yum Cha is a dining experience that involves drinking Chinese tea and eating dim sum dishes. It is a time for family and friends to get together to laugh, drink and eat. The best restaurant in Zetland will give a brief history on yum cha.

The tradition first originated in Southern China, where people would go to a “Tea House” and drink tea. The custom then changed over time to become a ritual where friends meet at a restaurant to enjoy some yum cha. Dim Sim is literally translated into “To Touch Someone’s Heart”. An array of small food portions is available for each food connoisseur to sample, while it became a tradition for Cantonese families to enjoy yum cha in the early mornings or for lunch. While that’s how the traditions are, you can enjoy yum cha in Zetland throughout all times of the day.

Feel free to make a booking today at the best restaurant in Zetland and indulge in some delicious food with some great company!
