A Yumcha slash Tea house fusion located on Danks St, Waterloo in Sydney, Pu’er serves a fantastic array of refreshing fruity teas to accompany their great selection of dumplings, street food and share plates.
Get your tummy all warmed up and ready with a pot of tea. We ordered the Osmanthus Phoenix and really enjoyed the aftertaste of mango.
We began with freshly steamed dumplings, ordering the Spicy Prawn Dumplings which were soft and full of flavour with a Canton style of chilli marinated prawn and baby bamboo in a lightly chilli pastry. Also ordered the Sui Mai filled with chicken & shiitake mushroom, sweet soy marinated prawn and creamy corn, topped with Seared Scallops. So good.
These imported tabletops are seriously gorgeous. The detail in the artwork is simply amazing.
The start to our mains arrived, with the Wagyu Tacos filled with 9+ Oakley Ranch Wagyu beef, Chinese taco buns, four leaf greens. They were more like tiny baos but were really delish. Also had the Hong Kong Mini Burgers filled with a cripsy panko pork, house smoked chilli paste, hoisin, baby cress all sitting in a golden mantao. Both were well made and very yummy.
The Caramelised Berkshire Pork belly served with Pu’er and spice infused tea eggs and topped with a deep fried pork crackling. Definitely a must order as the pork was rather tender and gratifying and pulled apart easily. More sauce would have been nice but all in all, a fantastic dish.
The Crispy Egg Noodles with seared prawns, scallops, snow peas and fresh shiitake was simply divine. Crack some of the noodles and dip into the broth to soften. Fresh crispy snow peas, meaty prawns and the shiitake worked together perfectly making this another must eat.
Dessert time x 2. We ordered the Coconut Sorbet and the Panacotta.
The Coconut Sorbet arrived in half a shell, with a bowl of black rice and a cup of coconut water. Clueless as how to eat this, we just dipped our spoons and enjoyed it. The black rice had an enjoyable warm sticky-rice texture to it and the coconut sorbet was a hit.
The Panacotta came with cubed Watermelons in a smoke filled jar, alongside a black sesame smear. Combined, it was a mouthwatering dessert indeed.
For an incredible feast of fine contemporary asian cuisine with friends, I definitely recommend Pu’er to be on your foodie bucket list due to its amazing delicious food and great customer service.
Pu’er is located at 20a Danks Street Waterloo NSW 2017.
