Dubai EatOuts #82: PING PONG

I treated us to a Dim Sum tea break right after the Metro train ride yesterday, at Dubai Mall. I look forward to  Dubai Mall’s station opening soon, so to drop by often for various foods and shopping!

Ping Pong restaurant is a newly opened Dim Sum place with a warm and comfy setting, a great place to just chill with your loved ones, over some dumplings.
I was impressed with their lush interior, decor and of course quality service. Being an upper-end restaurant, i had high expectations on their food quality too… But, turned out tad disappointed. Had way better authentic chinese Dim Sums back home in Kuala Lumpur, can’t blame my tongue wagging with remarks. Dim Sum without pork, is just… Incomplete.
I wouldn’t say it’s undelish, but it would be heaps yummier if those dumplings weren’t dry and hard. But i DID like the duck salad (not part of the Dim Sum menu) alot!
Food photos shall speak for itself:

             Still water looking pricey

                       The lush interior

   SL733482
 Ordered 5 baskets of Dim Sums (Dumplings)

    SL733486   
   Tiny vege spring rolls & yummy duck salad

The total bill came up to about Dhs 150, the fancy labelled still water ONLY cost us Dhs 5! Cheap! 
To spend Dhs 150 for 5 baskets of mini dumplings (Dhs 20 per basket), 1 duck salad, 1 large water, sticky rice and spring rolls is considered affordable. Mind you, Dim Sums here in Dubai are considered international cuisines, therefore paying at least Dhs 100 is a norm. Not to forget 10% service charge.

It was a burpy tea break afterall…
