After several change of businesses in the space next to BBQ City, there is finally a establishment set up there that is worth talking about. Dim Well Yum Cha Cafe is the new yum cha kid on the block and has only been open for just under a month. As a result, Saturday morning we went was fairly quiet and not your usual noise laden event. This was actually a nice change.

|Fried taro and pork dumpling|
This fried taro and pork dumpling was delish! Usually when ordering these there is the risk of hard coating and meat minced beyond recognition. Neither was the case for these little beauties. Casing was light and crisp, while the meat was actually thin pork strips.

Chicken feet are an acquired taste but to many Cantonese people this is a yum cha favourite. It's interesting how Chinese people seem to love food that is difficult to eat- the more effort the greater the food victory perhaps? These chicken feet were tender and soaked in a moreish black bean sauce. The sauce of these chicken feet would go great with a big bowl of steamy rice. Yum!

Although only our first experience, it was judged that Dim Well Yum Cha Cafe served a good and consistent standard of yum cha across each of the dishes we chose. Added bonus was the lovely service we received.
