It hasn’t been the most “exciting” food week in London. It has been jam-packed days where we are grabbing a quick lunch. And as my colleagues live outside of London with long commutes, my evenings have been picking up something to-go to eat while doing email in the hotel. Don’t get me wrong there is a multitude of fresh fast food options and I have had take out from the Japan center, fresh soups and salads, etc. But they don’t make for exciting stories!
However tonight at meal out with colleagues I got to have my first European dim sum experience. We went to Ping Pong in Westminster for a very decent dim sum dinner (which is unusual in itself as nobody serves dim sum past the afternoon in the U.S., although they do in Hong Kong). It was better than a lot of Bay Area dim sum that I have had, but not quite as good as the best dim sum restaurants that I have access to.
I tried to find dim sum in Paris, but Paris-based American food blogger of Chinese heritage, Ann Mah said, “it doesn’t exist.” So my first and maybe only European dim sum experience was not too shabby!
