Take a step back into the old world and have a feast for both the palate and the eyes at Sum Yi Tai’s newly opened Dining Club on the second level of their Boon Tat Street shop house.
Keeping in style of Sum Yi Tai’s glamorously charming ’80s Hong Kong decor, The Dining Club promises even more Wong Kar-wai vibes, exuding the utmost beauty and excess with lots of opulent wood paneling and oriental prints.
Decor aside, their food offerings are no less lavish, with a curated selection of Cantonese food including the likes of their braised pork belly with preserved vegetables in claypot, steamed “lo mai fun” stuffed in spring chicken as well as wok fried king prawns with BBQ sauce and more dishes you can shake your mahjong-seasoned fingers at.
Mid-day diners will only be able to enjoy a smaller lunch menu consisting of the Dining Club’s star dishes while those sitting for dinner will have access to their full selection, with set meal menus ripe for tasting as well. Of course, an extensive alcohol library is available at the restaurant for those who’d like to pick their poison alongside their meal.
