A few months back when I visited Yue Kee Central, I came back as a disappointed customer but after their re-opening they managed to bounce back quite well! To start off, their interior is all baby blue and floral making it quite an Instagram-worthy spot! They also have an outdoor balcony seating arrangement overlooking Abahani field and honestly, the view of Dhaka city from there is breathtaking!
Assorted Dimsum Platter
(Prawn Hargow, Chicken and Lemongrass, Sesame Beef)
Amongst the 3 I think the prawn one really stole the show with how juicy the stuffing was. The beef comes second with its meaty yet mild flavor. The chicken ones wrapper was extremely thick and the stuffing bland.
Prawn and Cream Cheese Wonthon
This one could have been fried slightly longer but the stuffing was delicious! The combination of juicy prawn and thick cheese mixture is an amazing one!
Yue Spicy Fried Rice
This fried rice was filled with chicken, beef, prawn, and calamari! A must have from their menu if you love spice in your rice.
Seafood Rice Bowl
This one is a meal in itself. The prawn tempuras were fried perfectly and the Asian Pan fried Fish had a sweet and sour taste with a brilliant crispy batter.
Sweet & Crispy Sweet Chicken
I liked this dish of their better before. Unlike my last time, this one had an uber thick, non-crispy coating and an overly thickened sweet sauce.
Yue Fried Chicken
While the chicken was cooked really nicely with a crispy skin on. The sad bit was that the sauce didn't seep through the chicken as nicely. But if you cut off bits of chicken and dip it in the sauce, it tastes quite nice.
Garlic Mushroom with Red Oil
A MUST HAVE FOR SURE! The thick red oil (as they call it but it doesn't taste anything like red oil), is sweet and peppery and goes really well with the meaty mushrooms. While they are canned ones, they managed to clean it really well as neither the smell, nor the taste bugged me.
Beef and Mushroom in Mahlak Sauce
Lean cuts of meat were dipped in a thick brown sauce which has a curry like taste. Personally I wasn't a big fan of it because of how deshi the taste was but the beef was really tender.
Red Velvet Cupcake
The red velvet looked really cute and perfect! The frosting managed to stay in place but slightly lacked the vinegary acidity but overall is one of the best red velvets I have had in town. They serve the same ones at The SweetSin café as well.
Honey Noodles with Almondflakes
This dish is addictive no matter where I have it. The sweetness here wasn't as overwhelming but the noodles could use a little bit more frying and toasted nuts.
