Dim Sum in Chinatown

The ocean called, They're running outta shrimp?
Jerry Seinfeld (Seinfeld episode “The Comeback”)

The other day we were around Covent Garden and got an urge to get some Dim Sum, so decided to look for options in Chinatown. After a quick research with Timeout and Yelp we ended in one of the Young Cheng places. Quiet for a late lunch, and the only tables were Asian, wich is a good sign. Limited menu for dim sum for diner, only 12 options from 5pm to close though.

Dim Sum Time
We got a selection of the available dishes, crabmeat with pork, Shanghai style, cream custard bun, the classic barbecued pork bun, and others. Food was ok not the best dim sum I have had in London, the highlight was definitely the deep fried shrimp.

Deep fried shrimp
Good service, bill a bit expensive for similar places, quality ok, probably better options around so will keep looking.
