Pop!! There goes my dimsum cherry thanks to Ping Pong. A small chain of super cool Japanese restaurants, after having shitty attempts at dimsum (you know like you get in those all you can eat places) I thought I would try it for real. I wasn’t disappointed. The small chain based in London that is PingPong was an awesome experience. Where to begin? Greeted at the door by a friendly front of house, being showed to your table with the sound of chilled down tempo music in the background. The whole restaurant is well put together with its trendy cocktail bar and modern decore
For someone who hasn’t ever been to a proper dimsum restaurant before the menu is a bit daunting. There is a lot to choose from. So asking for the friendly staff for their advice, I went for the set menu which. If you are a dimsum pro I would imagine you would be able to cope with the multiple dishes. However me being a dimsum virgin I went for set menu which was £32 for two people sharing. (bargain I hear you scream? Yes it was good value) Some things came out at spectate times, but the main dimsum comes out together in their little steamers. I found it best to share all the dishes out.
Shared between two there is plenty of food for a quick evening bite to eat after work. With there being happy hour EVERY DAY between 5pm & 7pm (ALL drinks half price) you could also get very drunk on thier selection of awesome cocktails. With the set menu you get desert too, which was just as good as the main, happened to be one of the best but very different brownies I have had.
With the company embracing social media you can get in touch via their website, Twitter or Facebook. With ping ping being a great all rounder for that quick but cheap evening meal it’s worth going. I will be visiting one of their restaurants again soon I am pretty sure of It.
