When Ping Pong restaurant invited a group of London travel bloggers to lunch at one of their locations, there was no way I was saying no.
I had been to Ping Pong in London a few other times and had enjoyed their food immensely. So when the lovely Emm, of Emm in London mentioned that the restaurant was looking to host a group of bloggers and provide us with a free lunch, I didn’t hesitate to accept.
Ping Pong boasts Asian cuisine and invited us to dine last weekend, when Chinese New Year festivities were in full swing in the city. It really couldn’t have been perfect timing as the holiday had me desperately longing for Hong Kong. What better way to feel connected to my former place of residence than to spend the holiday eating traditional Chinese food with blogger friends?
The lunch started with a refreshing strawberry and vanilla iced tea. Now typically, I am not a juice drinker, and like my iced tea relatively plain. But I threw caution to the wind and ordered this instead of a boring diet coke. I’m glad that I did.
And then came the food. Glorious, glorious food.
I selected the Ping Pong collection set menu, which gives a good variety of rolls and dumplings for the very affordable price of 9.95 GBP. I started with the roast pork puff:
Then inhaled the prawn, veg, and duck roll. Now, I hate duck and originally meant to trade my duck roll for someone else’s prawn roll… Until I realized that I had already mistakenly eaten (and enjoyed) the duck roll. I guess I like duck after all. Oops.
Feeling full but too greedy to not partake in the next course, I promptly demolished the basket of dim sum left in my wake. I love dumplings, sticky rice, and dumplings and sticky rice accompanied by an assortment of meaty fillings. My taste buds stood at attention.
It was a great time with tasty food and great people! You really can’t ask for anything more.
