YUM SING Restaurant: The tradition continues
CAIRNS is famous for quality Chinese cuisine. The latest offering to the market, YUM SING is destined to prove popular for local and tourists alike.
Yum Sing on Lake Street is a partnership between the Cairns Comfort Inn and Ray Sou, formerly of Café China.
Opening five weeks ago, Yum Sing offers a tempting array of beautiful Hong Kong style dishes. Restaurant Manager Ray Sou is pleased with his latest culinary venture.
“China is a diverse country with so many flavours. We base our menu upon Hong Kong style flavours.
“Very fresh, a hint of chilli and layers of flavour,” he said.
“It’s quite distinctive, in addition to the traditional stir-fries Hong Kong cuisine heavily features dumplings.”
Yum Sing’s head chef, Raymond Li is responsible for the amazing menu. Drawing deeply from more than 30 years cooking with Café China at the Casino in Cairns, Li has taken some of the popular dishes and added his specialities to create a new and exciting menu.
“It’s all about fresh. The dumplings are freshly made each day and then steamed or cooked to order.
“We choose the freshest ingredients and blend our own sauces and marinades, that way we know our flavours will be complex, and distinctive,” Li said.
There’s twelve varieties of hand-made dumplings on the lunch menu alongside 13 stir fried dishes and laksa.
Comfort Inn manager, Jacky Ni is a long-term friend of Yum Sing’s Ray Sou. “After Ray left Café China last year, he was looking for new opportunities as well as a location.”
“It was the perfect fit, we had a restaurant and kitchen in our motel, plus being central to other hotels and tourism attractions made it the perfect location for this new restaurant.
“Tourism is starting to lift, we have had a promising past few weeks, however our initial focus is to build our reputation with locals.
“We offer great food and exceptional value for money, plus it’s a great night out,” He said.
Yum Sing is open for lunch Tuesday to Sunday and for dinner 5 nights a week, Tuesday to Saturday.
Yum Sing is located in the Cairns Comfort Inn, 183 Lake Street Cairns.
