Ping Pong is one of those slick tea houses where dim sum lovers can indulge. Several branches have popped up around London, but I remain faithful to the one in Southbank – there is nothing like a long walk along the river after a nice meal! The dim sum here hits the spot, but not the pocket. I always go for the crispy prawn balls, the char sui buns and the lychee and lemongrass martini. Be warned though, can get busy, especially the terrace outside on a sunny London day.
