When you go to Camden, you are confronted with a feast of sights and sounds - there is a plethora of shops, bars and restaurants to cater for all your needs. So for me to recommend a restaurant to you - you must know that that restaurant is pretty good at what it does.
That is exactly the case with Yum Cha - a restaurant that transports you from Chalk Farm Road to the Orient as soon as you walk through the door.
The thing to come for is there wide selection of Dim Sum - traditional bite sized dishes served in bamboo steamers; it is quite satisfying to see your order arrive in a stack of these, which are then spread before you, the lids taken off to reveal clouds of steam, and the wafted smells of your meal at the same time. The honey roast pork bun is one of my personal favourites - but there are so many to choose from, you don't have to take me on my word. Not all Dim Sum are steamed however, there are also fried varieties, which seem to work very well with Chinese tea.
The restaurant also houses four karaoke rooms within its walls, if you would like to get a little singing action in before your meal (though it is recommended you pre-book one of the rooms in advance).
Popular with both its locals and people passing by from places like Camden Lock Market, why not treat yourself to some Dim Sum, sit back and relax - and watch the world go by as you revel in your steaming meal, especially early weeknights - when you can claim fifty per cent off, now that should definitely give you something to sing about...
