Welcome newbie-to-Chinatown Ping Pong Dim Sum announced new happy hour specials that will be sure to get me back in the door sooner rather than later. I tried out Ping Pong Dim Sum before they opened and loved the sweet creative cocktails ($5 at happy hour! A steal!) and adored the Char Sui Bun ($3 at happy hour). Ping Pong’s happy hour runs from 4-7 p.m., and then another round of after-dark specials start at 10 p.m. that include dessert.
While I’m not a huge dim sum person, I enjoyed Ping Pong’s Prawn Balls (again, $3 at happy hour!), as well as the Vietnamese Spring Rolls. In fact, almost all of my favorite things from the menu are on the happy hour menu, which means you should probably go, right now. The sleek black interior and shared tables make it the perfect date spot, co-workers happy hour or night out on the town.
Other specials available at happy hour are $4 Bottles of Import Beer (Tiger, Tsingtao and Sapporro Reserve), $3 Baked Puffs, Chicken and Black Pepper Roll, and Veggie Spring Roll. Happy hour ends at 7 p.m. and full price resumes. After 10 p.m. martinis go back down to $7, and desserts get added to the specials. $4 Chocolate Bun, Ice Cream or Sorbets, Pineapple and Mango Puff, Selection of exotic sliced fruits, pineapple and coconut spring roll. (The chocolate bun is to die for.) So, see you there at 4 p.m. I’ll be the one with the lychee martini in one hand and the Char Sui bun in the other.
