Chinatown London invites you to experience Dim Sum at the first ever National Dim Sum Week. Celebrations will kick off on 30 June and last until 6 July 2018, with an array of special menus on offer throughout the week and a one off talk from Jeremy Pang, founder of School of Wok.
A selection of top Chinatown London restaurants have created bespoke menus in honour of National Dim Sum Week, which will give people the chance to try all that this ancient culinary experience has to offer. Available throughout the week, menus include an introductory Dim Sum menu at Orient London, an express lunch hour menu at Lotus Garden, and a Chef’s special Dim Sum tasting menu paired with flowering teas and prosecco at Plum Valley. For the more adventurous, Dumplings’ Legend will be championing some of the more unusual and unknown Dim Sum dishes with its ‘Eat Like a Local Tasting Basket’, which includes Phoenix Claws and Turnip Cake.
Taking place at China Exchange on Thursday 5 July 2018, ‘Secrets of the Bamboo Basket: An Evening of Dim Sum’ will see Jeremy Pang talk about the evolution of the Dim Sum with a live demonstration. Other guest speakers include Amy Poon from the iconic Cantonese restaurant Poon’s, Master Chinese Chef Ken Wang and Jennifer Wood, Founder and Director of Canton Tea, who will take the audience through a journey of tea and Dim Sum pairings. With bite-sized contributions from expert foodies, live demonstrations and guided tea tastings, this is an event for anyone who would like to learn more about this culinary experience.
