Ouchou Yum Cha Shop


Restaurants & Cafés


This restaurant is located right by the north exit of Otsuka Station. The bright yellow exterior looks a little gaudy, but once inside, the surprisingly chic red and white interior has a very modern, fresh feel to it. Ouchou offers an extensive range of dim sum dishes, including not only sheng jian, but also xiao long bao containing kani miso (crab butter) made from Shanghai crab, large tang bao soup-filled dumplings, pumpkin mochi (rice dough) cakes and also their soup made from a traditional secret recipe. They also have a large range of sets that can be ordered, including the yum cha set (which includes a selection of dim sum) and the happy hour set. There’s plenty of space for those wanting to eat in, so it’s a great chance to enjoy fresh pan-fried soup dumplings.
