Keep cool with Yauatcha's summer special offer in May

Kolkata, May 9 (NITN): Yauatcha, the Chinese dim sum tea-house tucked inside Kolkata's Quest Mall, brings an array of summertime favourites, which have been prepared keeping the weather in mind.

Chinese cuisine is as diverse as its many regions and it also reflects the changing seasons.

According to traditional Chinese culture, there are specific ingredients and flavours that should be eaten during each season to counteract the changing weather.

In summer, plants grow fast, and people act more energetically.

The Chinese suggest eating ‘yin’ or cooling foods during these months.

The a la carte menu at Yauatcha shows a perfect balance of the Yin and Yang theory.

Try the Vegetarian duck salad with its three types of cress or micro greens along with fruits like pomegranate and pomelo, which are cooling fruits and best for the summer.

From the Stir Fry options, you may pick the stir fry lotus root, asparagus and water chestnut; used fresh, their high water prevents dehydration.

A dining experience at Yauatcha is incomplete without having their deliciously crafted dim sums.

Try the Mandarin Dumpling, which is a combination of various vegetables like corn kernel, asparagus, raw papaya, red pumpkin, water chestnut and mandarin.

You may round up your meal with the Red Fruit Fromage; the dessert is light on your palette and healthy.

Yauatcha offers an authentic range of dim sum with a contemporary influence as well as wok dishes and other small eats.

The concept is a modern interpretation of the traditional Chinese teahouse featuring a wide range of Chinese, Indian, Japanese and Taiwanese teas.

Yauatcha is also known for its handmade petitsgateaux, macarons available both a la carte and retail.
