Yum Cha – 11am to 3pm
Yum Cha is a part of the Chinese culture and a wonderful dining experience. Yum Cha actually means tea tasting. Having Chinese tea complemented with dim sums (snack-sized food) will extract the taste of the dim sum to its fullest.
With Yum Cha, it’s customary to pour tea for others before filling one’s own tea-cup. It’s also most gracious to be the first to pour tea. When tea drinkers tap the table with two (occasionally one) fingers of the same hand, an action known as ‘finger kowtow’, it is an expression of gratitude to the member of the party who filled their cups.
Dim sum are usually small and normally served as three or four pieces in one dish. It is customary to share dishes among all diners on the same table. Pearl Garden carefully prepares each dim sum with soybean oil and rice flour and can accommodate allergies and personal preference where possible.
