In March 2017, Hakkasan Hospitality Group’s Yauatcha arrived in Houston with much fanfare. One of only two in the United States and the eighth location in the world, the Michelin-starred restaurant is indeed exclusive and rare. The interior of the upscale Chinese eatery is aesthetically pleasing, service is impeccable and most of the food is dainty and delicious, with an exquisite selection of petite pastries and sweet creations. Skip the traditional har gau and shui mai, and try the more unique offerings, like the duck pumpkin puff and crispy soft shell crab with almonds from executive chef Ho Chee Boon.
