Pong is a Dim Sum chain which has 11 restaurants dotted around the city. We recently popped into the St Christophers Place outlet to check out the new Special Chinese New Year dishes and sample some of the old favourites.

From the specials we’d recommend the Seafood Wraps, cabbage wrapped seafood parcels with a hint of chilli and topped with lime purée pearls, these small parcels are crammed with flavour. The Sweet Basil Seafood Soup was another winner, a thai style soup with a spicy kick which makes for a great winter warmer.

On the original menu we enjoyed the Honey-Glazed Spare Ribs, juicy and tender with a sweet sticky coating. The Crispy Prawn Balls, steamed Crab and Prawn Dumplings and Chicken Rice Pot are all worth a mention too. And if you’ve got any room left the Banana and Chocolate Spring Rolls and huge selection of herbal teas make for a happy ending!

If you fancy grabbing yourself some Dim Sum why not join in the Chinese New Year festivities taking place across the group between 23rd January – 5th February. This year’s celebrations mark the Year of the Dragon, so get fired up for complimentary cocktails, dim sum masterclasses, mixology cocktail classes plus face-painting for the little ones and lots more. Just think this time next month you could be making your own Dim Sum…ones you’d actually want to eat!
