    Items like the Green Tea Choux (with hazelnuts, curd and confit) or the Raspberry Delice (with raspberry, chocolate brownie, lychee and hazelnut) exemplify what Yauatcha is all about: beautiful desserts with simple, elegant flavours. It's a dim sum teahouse, so be sure to order a few plates and keep passing until every morsel is gone.

    The menu note on the cheesecake says, "You may not want to share but you should." It's true: you'll need two or three friends to finish the round, graham-cracker-crusted serving.
