Yauatcha Houston – The local outpost of Hakkasan Group’s Michelin-starred Chinese dim sum concept – recently opened its second location in the U.S. in the heart of The Galleria area, Houston's shopping and dining district.

Executive Chef Ho Chee Boon has created a menu specific to Houston that embodies the Chinese dim sum teahouse concept, including a heady array of authentic dishes including steamed dim sum, cheung fun, baked/fried/pan-seared dim sum, soup, salad, fish and seafood, poultry and meat, tofu, vegetable, rice, and noodle.   

An eclectic mixology program offers inventive cocktails – many of which combine spirits with teas, fresh fruits and herbs – including the Desert Essence created exclusively for Houston with Mexican specialty liquor Sotol, aloe vera liqueur, hibiscus, sage, dill, lime, and cane sugar.

Yauatcha is open Sunday thru Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Thursday thru Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. with nightly DJ entertainment beginning at 6 p.m. until closing.
