Ping Pong Dim Sum serves the chocolate bun in the same steaming bamboo bowl as regular items. It’s a nice concept: Valhrona chocolate sauce and coconut squeezed into a dim sum puff. The bun has a unique texture combination of a chewy, spongey puff with liquid chocolate. I recommend waiting for this dish to cool and eating each piece in one bite.
The chocolate bun is a better dessert than most Asian restaurants offer. I wouldn't come to Ping Pong for this dessert, but if you're there, it's worth a try. It deserves a good rating.
