Dim Sum Duck

Expert recommendation

Arguably the best Cantonese cooking in LondonSome serious lunchtime gorging at Dim Sum Duck in King’s Cross, what the UK restaurant critic Fay Maschler (of the Evening Standard and Tatler) has called “arguably the best Cantonese cooking in London” (the peerless Marina O'Loughlin lauds it too). Please excuse the low-quality photos, but dim sum baskets were steaming and arrived thick and fast - and I was ravenous. Plus, who has the patience for a Vogue-style photoshoot - this is food to be eaten, not stage designed. A whopper won ton soup with noodles was plentiful and would have been sufficient, but on we went… piping hot xiao long bao with a deliciously soupy mixture and shredded ginger, then prawn dim sum with chopped chives, crystal shrimp dumplings, pork & shrimp siu mai, shao mai and a couple of fluffy char siu bao. And breathe.
