Dragon Boat Festival Delights: Yauatcha's Limited Edition Menu and Tanqueray's Bespoke Cocktails

Yauatcha, the renowned Chinese dim sum teahouse, is delighted to announce its celebration of the traditional Chinese holiday, the Dragon Boat Festival. In honor of this auspicious occasion, Yauatcha is introducing a limited edition menu in collaboration with Tanqueray, offering a delightful fusion of flavours and cultural traditions.

The highlight of the Dragon Boat Menu is the zongzi, a pyramid-shaped glutinous rice dumpling wrapped in lotus leaves, traditionally served during the Dragon Boat Festival. Yauatcha's culinary team has expertly crafted five different types of zongzi to tantalize the taste buds of the guests. The menu features both vegetarian and regular options, ensuring there is something for everyone to enjoy. This limited edition menu is a captivating culinary experience featuring the exquisite Black Truffle and Porcini Mushroom Sticky Rice, skillfully combining earthy flavours with the delectable stickiness of glutinous rice. Steamed to perfection, the classic Sticky Rice Wrapped in Lotus Leaf envelops your senses with fragrant herbal aromas, evoking the essence of tradition.

For those seeking enchanting combinations, the Prawn and Water Chestnut Sticky Rice harmoniously blends succulent prawns and crispy water chestnuts, celebrating the heart of Chinese culinary traditions. Discover the melt-in-your-mouth goodness of the Braised Pork Belly in Lotus Leaf, where tender and luscious pork belly absorbs the essence of the braising liquid, heightened by the subtle botanical infusion from the steamed lotus leaf. Prepare for a symphony of tastes and textures with the Sticky Rice Wrapped in Lotus Leaf accompanied by either Chicken, Prawn, or Shiitake Mushroom. Each bite unveils a delightful medley that captures the essence of Chinese cuisine. Concluding this extraordinary journey, savor the Cantonese Steamed Custard Bun—a fluffy masterpiece with a heavenly custard filling that perfectly complements the savory zongzi, leaving an unforgettable impression on your palate.

To enhance the festive atmosphere and pay homage to Chinese heritage, Yauatcha has partnered with WanderInk to create exclusive dim sum baskets. These hand-painted baskets will add a touch of artistry to the dining experience, showcasing the craftsmanship and attention to detail that Yauatcha is known for.

Along with the flavourful food items on the menu, Yauatcha will also feature a limited edition cocktail menu curated by Tanqueray. Satisfy your caffeine cravings with the Espresso Highball, an exquisite amalgamation of espresso, Tanqueray gin, maple syrup, and a hint of stillabunt. This invigorating libation artfully combines the robust essences of coffee with the botanical nuances of gin, resulting in a harmonious and revitalizing sensory experience.

For a refreshing alternative, the Grapefruit Spritz is a vibrant fusion of Rose wine, Tanqueray gin, grapefruit juice, and delicate elderflower essence. This effervescent elixir tantalizes the palate with its citrusy and floral symphony, delivering a crisp and delectably sweet indulgence. The Kashmiri Kawatini, a delightful blend of Milk Wash Tanqueray Gin, fresh orange juice, grapefruit juice, almond Kashmiri Kawa, maple syrup, lime juice, and a touch of Angostura bitter allows you to experience rich flavours, while the epitome of elegance, the Queen of Hearts, is a meticulously crafted tipple, a fusion of refined Sake, exquisite Vodka, and a delicate touch of Extra Dry Vermouth. This artfully prepared concoction is stirred with precision, unveiling a symphony of flavours as it gracefully pours into a serving glass. With all these and more, all the cocktails on the menu are infused with flavours synonymous with the Dragon Boat Festival, providing a unique and modern twist to the festivities.
