Yauatcha is honouring the Chinese heritage by celebrating The Dragon Boat Festival, a metaphor for summer solstice across all three cities of its locations in India. The celebrations will include a month long limited edition menu crafted to offer dishes that are traditionally eaten during the festival with Yauatcha’s contemporary touch. The festival is incomplete without the inclusion of the aromatic and delicious rice dim sum called zongzior glutinous rice wrapped in lotus leaves stuffed with vegetables, meats and seafood.
The Dragon Boat Festival is a traditional Chinese festival. It has a history of more than 2,000 years, and commemorates the death of a Chinese poet and patriot called Qu Yuan, who threw himself into a river after being accused of treason. Local villagers immediately rushed out to the river in their boats. They beat their drums and splashed water to keep the evil spirits away from his body. They also threw rice dumplings into the river to keep the fish from eating his body. This then became a tradition of racing dragon boats and eating rice dumplings during the festival.
The newly introduced dim sum include Chef Raymonds’s take on the zongzior the lotus leaf wrapped sticky rice and is available in three varieties – Steamed sticky rice with water chestnuts & mushrooms, Steamed stick rice with chicken and Steamed sticky rice with prawn & mushroom. The highlight of the menu is th eFried carrot roll with glutinous rice in spicy sauce which is an innovative take on the traditional zongzi where the lotus leaf wrap has been replaced by a fried carrot bun roll. The classic wok dishes are recreated with modern ingredients and guests can choose from Dual crispy mushroom with baby pakchoy in oyster sauce,Vegetables and shimeji mushroom, Crispy John Dory fish with olives,or the Prawns, beans and edamame in toban chili.
Try Rice and Noodle options like Dual of glutinous beetroot fried rice or the Braisedefu noodle with mock meat and mushrooms. To complete the festive meal, guests can enjoy the Wine soaked water chestnut and mango cake with Sauvignon wine sorbet.
