national dim sum week 2018

We’re HUGE fans of dim sum, as you can tell by the many dumpling and cheung fun pics on our Instagram, so we’re pretty bloody excited that the first ever National Dim Sum Week is coming to Chinatown London.

National Dim Sum Week is all about celebrating the history and ritual of this ancient meal, from the dumplings and buns to the lesser known dishes to the traditional accompaniment of tea. A host of Chinatown restaurants have created special menus for the week, including an introductory dim sum menu at Orient London, an express lunch hour menu at Lotus Garden, Dumpling Legend’s ‘Eat Like a Local’ tasting menu, and a chef’s special dim sum lunch tasting menu paired with flowering tea and prosecco at Plum Valley.

China Exchange is also hosting the one-off ‘Secrets of the Bamboo Basket: An Evening of Dim Sum’ event on 5th July, which’ll feature food tastings, a demo and a talk from School of Wok founder Jeremy Pang, with Amy Poon (of Poon’s), master chef Ken Wang and Alice Evans (of Canton Tea) also speaking.
