The new ‘Summer of Health’ menu is a pleasant surprise

Review Image
A longtime fan of Ping Pong, I know it’s a safe bet for a speedy, tasty and affordable supper, but the new ‘Summer of Health’ menu is a pleasant surprise on the tastebuds that’s worthy of another visit.

Created in collaboration with nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert, with Ruby Wu, Ping Pong’s Dim Sum Master, the menu - available in all eight restaurants until the end of August - has been created to be nutritionally balanced, deliciously light and refreshing and perfect for the summer months.

The founder of leading Harley Street clinic Rhitrition, Rhiannon is also the creator of top Health charting podcast Food For Thought and bestselling author of Re-Nourish: A Simple Way To Eat Well. Her new menu encapsulates fresh ingredients and flavours to create a tasty addition to Ping Pong’s classics.

The menu includes two new dim sum; a deliciously umami Miso Aubergine dumpling with quinoa, mange tout, chickpeas and a white miso filling in a turmeric pastry, and an Okra and Cod dumpling, light and delicate, it’s filled with juicy flakes of fish, prawns, goji berries, shiitake mushrooms, carrots and bamboo shoots. The Vegan Re-Fresh Superfood Ginger and Miso Salad is summer personified; full of vibrant, crispy vegetables, a rainbow plate of crunch featuring quinoa, long stem broccoli, cucumber, carrot, pomegranate, beans and spring onion with a zingy white miso sauce. I’ve already recreated it (to varying levels of success…) more than once at home.

There’s.a Re-fresh Smoothie, a green dream featuring kale, nacho pear, avocado, ginger, parsley, fresh lime and apple; admittedly I didn’t give this one a go, but with an ingredients list like that it’s got to be good for me.

I may have developed a mild obsession with the coconut and red date pudding. Completely moreish, this panda cotta-esque dessert with vanilla sugar and raspberry coulis felt seriously indulgent and yet refreshingly light. The perfect summer pudding.

Of course, Ping Pong has its classic menu of favourites to supplement your Summer of Health, but if you want the dim sum experience without the calories of some of the other dishes on the menu, the new additions are a great alternative.

We went to a few Ping Pong, non of them have good service. this place is disgrace. why do we want to pay to get such awful service when the food is not that particular good??!!! the host of this place should be fired, or maybe the manager, if they don't understand the value of customer, or if they don't want to serve, why are they there? I know some restaurants just happen to have big investment behind, so they afford to have best locations, no matter what they serve, or how bad is the service, people just flood in.. unless you have no place to eat, otherwise, don't bother. go to Ping Pong, just waste your money! go to china town, you can get better dimsum and better service!
I think Ping Pong need to provide training to staffs, not because they have good locations, and good concept then you can do whatever you want! Customers are paying for the great food as well as the service, its a very important part of overall expirence. thanks

Ping Pong need to take a close look at their "Set Lunches". There is really not enough food there to qualify as a lunch. Trade descriptions act material maybe. This is a shame as the quantity of food used to be better. Last time we were there we left so hungry we went over the road to M&S to get sandwiches afterwards. I'd strongly recommend talking to the waiter or manager and ask to be shown how much you actually get before ordering.

Not having heard of Ping Pong or even considered a modern apprach to "Yum Cha", Ping Pong have done a good job. Having good taste, a knack for good value and being Chinese. Ping Pong deserves a good 9/10 for great food. The menu is pretty comprehensive and everything is freshly delivered to your table. I enjoyed the jasmine tea balls and food is as good as any in Chinatown, if not better. The service is a bit patchy when they are busy, but it isn't the end of the world and the staff aren't rude and crude as they are in Chinatown. But being Chinese, "Yum Cha" is brunch, so having it past a certain time is a non-no. Just ask if any true Italian has a capucino after 11am?
