Yauatcha City launches Supreme Saturdays

Yauatcha City Supreme Saturdays main courses

The new Supreme Saturdays lunch menu at Yauatcha City may be the most indulgent way to kick off the weekend yet.

While the City workers are away, there’s no better day to come out to play. Yauatcha City has brought in a new lunch menu that stretches late into the afternoon, adding a special touch to an otherwise ordinary Saturday.

Warm up with a choice of one of three cocktails. Go for the sweet and fragrant lychee martini or the ginger-laced Thea martini which has a healthy kick of chilli. Those who can start off the day with something a bit stronger can jump straight in with a negroni.

The meal begins with a selection of steamed dim sum including har gau, pork and prawn shui mai, a Wagyu beef dumpling, a vegetable and truffle wrap, pumpkin and pine nut, and a wild mushroom dumpling. There’s no skimping on filling and each one is as delicate and perfectly succulent as the other.

Next up is a medley of fried dim sum that includes a super-crunchy sesame prawn toast ball with the juiciest centre, a mushroom spring roll, a crumbly venison puff stuffed with lovely, meaty cubes and a lobster roll so light it’ll be devoured in just a couple of bites.

Then come the mains. Note the use of plural because you get to order two courses from a choice of three. Having to leave one behind is heart-breaking but bring along a bigger group and you can order the lot and share in the joy. There’s a hot pot of steamed lobster with vermicelli noodles, a rich dish of succulent, chunky beef cubes and foie gras, and a seriously tender pork belly rib topped with truffle and enoki mushrooms. Bok choi and bowls of steamed and perfectly fluffy Jasmine rice help to mop up the rich sauces that coat the latter two dishes. You get half a bottle of wine to help keep the palate moist too.

Yauatcha City Supreme Saturdays dessert

With dessert, you’ll see the artistic flair of the patisserie come alive with any one of their petits gateaux. The passion fruit and mango dome with white chocolate and coconut shavings is wonderfully light but has plenty of sweet, tropical notes, or go for the ever-popular raspberry delice rose cake with an intense chocolate sponge, raspberry mousse and lychee panna cotta. You even get to finish with a post-lunch cocktail – choose from a Manhattan, an Amaretto sour or an espresso martini to round off the magnificent celebratory lunch.

The menu costs £49 per person and is available from 12pm – 5pm every Saturday. To make a reservation, email [email protected]
