Yum Cha Sundays are coming to Light Years! Beginning this Sunday March 10 you can enjoy a modern take on the classic Sunday tradition – every week.

Yum Cha is a wonderful ‘brunch’ idea, especially after enjoying a leisurely Sunday morning, and it can be a healthy choice too (depending on what and how much you order!) as well as being, well… yum.

The Light Years yum cha is definitely not your average yum cha experience. On the menu are delicious beef and kim chi dumplings, as well as honey and sesame king prawns, me goreng chicken wings and char sui bao buns! 

However, for those of us who don’t eat meat, there are plenty of vegetarian and vegan options such as: crispy roti with turmeric and coconut curry dip; marinated tofu and veggie san choy bow; and Szechuan fried eggplant.

And the yum cha feast will keep the interest of those regular customers, with owner Kim Stephen saying that there are ‘80% new menu offerings from our regular menu, in smaller typical yum cha sized offerings.’

In Cantonese, yum cha literally means ‘drink tea’; however, for those in recovery mode after the night before, or just in holiday mode on the weekend, there are $10 cocktail specials and $5 Tiger stubbies available.

Yum Cha is on at Light Years from 11:30am till 3:30pm every Sunday.

Bookings for larger groups essential via the website www.lightyearsasiandiner.com.au, but walk ins are welcome.

More info: Light Years restaurant and cocktail bar.
