Our Valentine’s Date at Yuan, Atlantis The Palm

The date at Yuan was a surprise for our eldest, Kuya V. I wanted to re-assure him that even if he’s a big brother now, he will always be Mama’s baby boy.

Yuan restaurant has a kid dining policy of 4 years and up. The initial plan was for Kuya and I to go on date and Dad will spend the afternoon with LittleMiss. We asked Yuan’s reception if they would allow us to dine with our toddler, they agreed saying that the policy only applies for dinner.

Our hostess led us to our table and handed us Yuan’s Yam Cha brunch menu, we are to order anything that we want on the menu.

“Order as many dimsum you want on the menu and we will serve in your table.”

We did.


Roasted Duck Roll with Mango, Steamed BBQ Chicken bun (no photo), Steamed Shrimp Dumpling, Braised Char Siew Pork with Hong Kong Noodle,  and Steamed Pork Ribs with Black Bean Sauce

Favorites: Steamed BBQ Chicken bun and Roasted Duck Roll with Mango. Both pork meal had good flavors but we would have preferred it’s meat was much softer.


Fried Rice with Chicken and Iceberg Lettuce, Baked BBQ Chicken puff, Asparagus StirFry, BitterGurd Bihon, Steamed Sticky Rice in Lotus Leaf with Mushrooms and Dried Scallops.

Favorites: Asparagus StirFry (forgot dish name on menu) and Bbq Chicken Puff. I would have preferred for the Sticky rice in lotus leaf to have more filling.


Baked Hong Kong Egg Tart, Mango Sago with Pomelo and Deep Fried Sweet Sesame Roll

Favorites: Sweet Sesame Roll, surprisingly was the favorite here it had a generous sweet filling. Anything with sago makes the LittleOne’s happy but sadly the Mango Sago with Pomelo had a bitter after taste.

Overall we really had a good dining experience at Yuan, our servers were very pleasant and patient when we asked what the difference is between some dish. The restaurant was full that February 13 but we did not have to wait that long for our orders to come.

Hi, my name is Abigail a stay at home Mama of two LittleOnes and currently residing in Dubai, UAE since 2009. This is my little space online where I share activities, places we've been, food we enjoy and snippets of our daily expat life. ‘Cuddles and Crumbs’ is a combination of the two main things I share on this blog: cuddles (family) and crumbs (food).


  1. I really want to love dim sum as everything looks so tasty, but until now, I’ve only developed a taste for the soup dumplings at Din Tai Fung:) Maybe I should give Yuan a try? 🙂

    • Went to SG and HK and didn’t even get a chance to dine at Din Tai Fung 😦 Well, Yuan is not the first place I would recommend to have your dim sum fix. Sino Chai tops our list but sadly it’s close now, next one that come’s to mind is Shang Palace (we had a not so happy service experience though) but the dim sum is really good.
