Last Saturday, a girlfriend invited us to Yum Cha at Kam Fook at Westfields Chatswood. In addition to catching up with friends, I was dying for Yum Cha, which I hadn’t had in ages. I've been to Yum Cha loads of times in my life, but still almost always manage to have something I've not had before.

Kam Fook at Yum Cha time is a hustling, bustling thing; in fact…it’s huuuuuuuge! Their restaurant is large and they’re a popular place, so I guess it makes sense. It’s always best to get to Yum Cha early, about 11am, but especially with this place because it's so big. Also, the service here is already a little sketchy, so as time goes on and they get busier and busier, the service can get a bit sloppier, and seeing food trolleys a little less frequent.

Nonetheless I was thrilled with the food, it was fresh and delicious, except for…well, you’ll see.

All manner of tasty treats!


1. This little dude was so light and delicately meaty on the inside
2. Look at that gorgeous prawn inside this one, it was gooooood
3. Flakey sweet BBQ pork pie

1. Tender scallop and shallots inside a crispy crunchy shell
2. Never again. Chicken's feet. I had them for the first time
around 20 years ago and found that I still cannot handle 
them. Gelatinous, bony, gah, can't do 'em! Ah well, I tried! 
3. Sweet water chesnut sliced thing. REALLY good!

These were something I'd not had before. Rice noodles filled with a
slightly chewy flaky pastry, shallots and sweet sauce. Yummy!

Check it!

Shiny round BBQ pork bun! A touch too doughy, but still good.

A trolley laden with goodies

Celebrations in and around the centre. I love the dragons!

Omg I love Yum Cha! Sometimes you just got to go ther with chickens feet- as part of the experience- but there is usually no merit in venturing into that gristly badness.

Ya, I don't mind trying the odd new thing...although there are limits! I had beef tongue by accident once, but it was actually quite nice...really tender!

Oh yum. You've made me hungry. :)

And we currently have the same layout!

All this celebratoryness in my own neighbourhood and I didn't even realise!

Hee, yes! And those dragons with their drums sounded so good, but looooud! I think the whole of Westfields heard them!

Waaaah! I want yum cha!
Feb. 25th, 2008 01:04 am (UTC)
So many tasty morsels!

Hmmm, I didn't notice them that day, I was too busy stuffing my face. Heh. I don't think they would have been happy though, not once the dragon turned up with its clanging cymbols and bonging drum!
