dim sum menu


Dim sum - the story Dim Sum – what’s the story? Tiny parcels of glistening pastry, hiding mouthfuls of delicately-flavoured ingredients, Dim Sum are undeniably delicious, super-healthy and great to share. But don’t be fooled by their modern good-looks – these are no new creation dreamt up in a trendy chef’s lab. People have been tucking into Dim Sum since the Tang dynasty cooked them up way back in the 8th century. And now the word’s out in the West where they’re just as well loved. So what’s the secret of their success? Perhaps it’s the fact that you order just as many or as few Dim Sum as you fancy – platefuls if you’re starving or just a handful to go with cocktails. Maybe it’s that each one is its own perfect little mouthful, making them the ideal treat to share with friends. Or is it that they’re pretty as a picture as well as so darned tasty? You’ll be the judge.

Ping Pong – history with a twist It’s no exaggeration to say we’re crazy about Dim Sum. With a choice of soft, hand-made dumplings, fluffy buns and crispy fried rolls, there’s a Dim Sum for everyone. So whether it’s seafood, veggie or meaty dishes, rice or pastries, you’ll find something that’s right up your street. At Ping Pong we made it our mission to give this ancient cuisine a thoroughly modern update. We challenged our Dim Sum chefs to create authentic Chinese dishes with a bang-up-to-date western twist. And the result? Our unique fusion of East meets West that is always evolving and forever Ping Pong. Enjoy!

Tea what the history?

Rare & gourmet teas

According to legend, tea was first discovered by the chinese emperor and inventor shennong in 2737 bc. It is said that the emperor liked drinking his water boiled, so that is what his servants did. One day, on a trip to a distant region, he and his army stopped to rest. A servant began boiling water for him to drink, and a dead leaf from the wild tea bush fell into the water. It turned into a brownish color, but it was unnoticed and presented to the emperor anyway. The emperor drank it and found it very refreshing, and cha (tea) was born.

Teas’ finest moments.

Teas a-z The way that tea is normally categorised is by type - this refers to the six main production methods which result in green, white, yellow, oolong, black and puerh teas. Teas which are scented with flowers form one further type, these are called scented tea or flower tea (‘hua cha’ in mandarin)

Green tea In order to make green tea, the tea leaves are picked, allowed to dry up, then fired to kill the enzymes in the leaf and prevent oxidation; therefore they are rich of antioxidant. It tastes green and alive offering the experience of drinking the essence of spring.

black tea: keemun gongfu

light lively & clean, with the classic keemun long, toasty finish. high in caffeine, pickled early in april- the earliest picking of black tea in china.

green tea: organic dragon well

lively, garden fresh flavor and liquorices complexity. the most famous green tea in china. good for the heart. low in caffeine.

white tea: organic silver needle

light, delicate, fruity flavours with cucumber & melon. low in caffeine.

Most white teas are produced in Fujian province. Many believe that white tea production is defined by the use of bud (tips) only. This is not the case. The term, white tea, refers to the processing method alone: picking, withering and ambient drying.

Yellow tea Yellow tea is picked and processed in a similar way to green tea – up to the point of final baking. After wok firing the tea is slowly cooked to prevent oxidation over a very gentle heat up to ‘yellow’ The leafs. This removes the grassy flavor found in most green teas; It lacks the vegetal taste of green tea and instead offers a clear, Smooth and cool cup.

Oolong tea The production of oolong tea is complex and its aroma unique. After withering, the leaves are wrapped tightly and tumbled to allow further oxidation and at last fired dry to stop oxidation.

Black tea Black teas are fully oxidized. After withering, oxidation is encouraged through rolling which bruises the leaf and exposes its juices to air. The enzymes in the leaf act as a catalyst for oxidation and the leaf turns from green to vivid red. Firing and sorting follows.

Puerh tea The basic production method of puerh tea involves picking, withering, drying, rolling, firing, fermenting and compression of the tea leaves into ‘cakes’ and careful storage. Similar to wine, this tea improves with age.

Scented teas Any tea can be scented but green tea and a small proportion of black teas are usually used. In the case of a flower scent teas these are made by vast piles of fresh blossoms placed on top of the tea to absorb the aromas overnight. In the morning, after being separated from the flowers, the tea is fired to reduce the moisture and soak up the flavor. Scented teas are velvety and with thrilling aroma.

Herbal infusions Herbal infusions are the product of infusing a herb, flower or dried fruit in boiling water; it is not a tea. They have a fragrant, clean taste and are a delicious, caffeine free drink. Herbal teas broken down into dust do not pass on the flavour that they should. Only a whole leaf herbal infusion will impart such a flavour.
