Ping Pong Dim Sum

with 2 comments

Yesterday, I was having a quick dinner at Ping Pong Dim Sum at the south bank branch. Obviously, they serve a big variety of dim sums — that is steamed little pockets filled with different Chinese ingredients. There are buns, puff pastry, dumplings and lotus leaves as wrappers. Buns are basically normal pastry, puff pastry are very soft blown up things (man I really lack the words to describe that!), and dumplings resemble transparent fish skins in looks and taste (just more sticky and less delicious I guess!). The different wrappers can then either be steamed, fried or baked, and get served in typical bamboo boxes (see picture). You order about 3-5 different dim sums for a good meal, each of them around £3.50. The variety in food you eat makes the whole meal enjoyable and quite different to a usual dinner. Modern interior and quick service, certainly good for quick dinners.

  1. If you like that kind of food be sure to go to some restaurant specializing in Russian food and ask for some “pelmeni” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pelmeni). You should get some hacked onion, molten butter, smetana and Russian-style salted cucumbers with it. It’s delicious!
