A YUM TIME & A FUN TIME
We are big fans of Nahji Chu, the mastermind behind Miss Chu and boi oh boi were we excited when we heard she was embarking on another culinary adventure!
The Queen of rice paper rolls and dumplings has reinvented yum cha and in all the right ways so as soon as we heard she was opening Cha Li Boi around the corner from our office, we were there. Seriously though, how convenient! Boi oh boi, this could actually be pretty dangerous hahaha.
Nahji wanted to reinvigorate how people ate and interacted with yum cha so she decided to shake things up by having an incredibly clean, contemporary and chic aesthetic. This modern take on yum cha certainly stole our hearts along with the food, (think amazing vegan and gluten-free options minus the MSG) and the clever meal names. Ling My Bell, Leather Jacket and Cray-Cray were our faves hahaha.
We rolled out of there looking like the little dumplings we just ate because the dishes were all out of this world yum (cha)! From duck pancakes, salt and pepper calamari, dim sum and sizzling beef to banana fritters, mango pancakes and sesame ice cream, you can bet your bottom dollar that we tried (and loved!) it all.
So if you’re after a yum time and a fun time, head to Cha Li Boi in Bondi Junction. You’ll probably see us there hahaha.
