I wish I had thought to take my camera yesterday when we went to have yum cha for lunch at Bodhi at Philip+Cook Park, near St. Mary’s Cathedral. Yum cha must be one of the most attractive lunches you can have.
I will keep this brief, as I will freely admit that I only know what about half of our food was. The ones I can describe with a relative degree of clarity are: spring rolls, pumpkin dumplings, sweet corn bao, bbq bao and a couple of veggie noodle things. The noodles literally melted in your mouth, though the sweet corn bao was probably my favorite. We also had some fried sesame coconut balls for dessert, which were not too sweet and a good ending for the meal.
Go there. Really.
