24-26 Baker Street
If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that one of my favourite meals is Dim Sum. Last week I went to Royal China Baker Street for lunch to see what Dim Sum they had to offer. Me and my friends usually head to China Town and try a different restaurant each time. Royal China is different, it’s just off Oxford Street and has a more luxurious vibe than any restaurant in China Town.
I always get my favourites and sample some new ones at the same time – the best being Char Siu Bao ( barbecue pork filled bun). The usuals that I order include Cheung Fun (Meat filled rice rolls), Shumai (pork dumplings) and the deep fried prawn balls. All of which were delicious from Royal China, their Char Siu Bao is one of the best I’ve had in London – so light and fluffy and extremely tasty.
We tried some new things like the roast duck filled buns and some beancurd prawn rolls along with Royal Chinas new bubble tea drinks which were awesome. You never really get fruit flavoured bubble tea on the menu at Dim Sum so it’s really nice that they’ve introduced it here.
We samples some mains as well like the crispy shredded beef in the birds nest and a chicken in black bean sauce with crispy noodles which were also excellent. The noodles had a really distinct taste.
Although the price is a little higher than your average dim sum – the service, atmosphere and quality of the food make up for it. So if you’re ever around central London and fancy some Dim Sum then definitely try Royal China on Baker Street.
