As the temperatures start to dip, you're probably looking for some fresh ways to keep the chills at bay through Melbourne's frosty season. Well, we've found a banger — the Espy's contemporary Cantonese diner Mya Tiger is spicing up your life with a new limited-edition weekly yum cha offering.
From 11am every Sunday, through May, June and July, this $58 feasting situation will see you dive into a shared spread of starters, followed by your choice of six yum cha dishes. Tick your selections off on the menu slip — a la all those old-school Chinatown joints — and get ready to chow down on the likes of truffle pork siu mai, sesame prawn toasts, chicken and vegetable gyoza, lamb spring rolls and more.
There's a slew of add-ons available if you're feeling extra peckish, including soy egg noodles ($8) and a spanner crab fried rice ($23).
Unlike your more traditional yum cha offerings, this one also features a soundtrack of DJ tunes. And, in addition to Chinese tea, you'll be able to pair your feast with an exclusive lineup of four-person teapot cocktails ($40), including a pear and spiced oolong number, and one teaming Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz with pomegranate and Thai basil.
