Ping Pong Review, Marylebone

One of my favourite restaurants in London is Ping Pong, with a combination of Dim Sum and lovely cocktails what more could a girl ask for. They are many branches scattered around London with my particular favourite in South Bank, its big, great views and the bar upstairs has a lounge, its lovely in summer. But when a colleague told me that there is one near work, I jumped off my chair (not literally).

So for a great pay day lunch we headed to Ping Pong situated just off Marylebone High Street. The low lighting, wooden tables, lovely laid out cutlery makes Ping Pong’s décor a win in my eyes.

Once seated, we were given a menu and a pencil; it’s a concept where you place a tick on the menu sheet next to the food you want to order. We first ordered our drinks, (the cocktails are pricey but oh so worth it) and chose the Hong Kong Colada (£6.45) this included pampero especial rum, abruzzo liqueur, pineapple and coconut juice with lime wedges and goji berries. One sip and you’d picture yourself being on a beach surrounded by palm trees *sigh*. It was luscious…

For our food we selected the £9.95 set menus; I opted for the vegetarian menu which included the following: Hoi Sin Vegetable Puff, Mixed Vegetable Spring Roll, Crispy Potato Cakes, Spicy Black Sesame Seed Dumpling, Spicy Vegetable Dumplings, Spinach and Mushroom Dumplings and Vegetable Sticky Rice.

I just love the way the Dim Sum is served in wooden steam boxes, its also so intriguing how these little dumplings are made, the colours, the flavours and smells. We were super stuffed, Dim Sum is delicious and the service and atmosphere at the restaurant is excellent, so what are you waiting for, go visit your nearest Ping Pong now…
