Dining Guide


Cerulean light greets diners entering magical Yauatcha, the best dim sum place we’ve found so far in Houston. Yes, it is expensive, but our experience over several visits has been nearly flawless. Recently, we concentrated on dim sum, though other options are available, assisted by a helpful waiter in navigating the complex menu. Our reward: lobster dumplings with tobiko as fresh as the sea; prawn cheung fun (rice noodle rolls); morel dumplings, exploding with flavor; and tender wagyu beef rolls. The crunchy duck proved a bit heavy, but our pineapple jasmine grand macaron made a light and appropriately impressive finale. (Final observation: if you enjoy drama, the sandalwood smoke–infused tequila cocktail called Elemental Fashioned is just thing for you.)
