Sunday lunch: dim sum and den sum at Royal China

Royal China © Rob Greig Bored of the usual Sunday roasts? Then break the tradition with Chinese dim sum. This weekend lunch tradition of Cantonese families is one way for Chinese chefs to show off their prowess, which they do by showcasing a variety of small, sharing plates of steamed, baked or fried nibbles. Head to Royal China to sample high-quality, authentic dim sum at a reasonable price. Munch on char siu buns (airy steamed bread around tender barbecued pork) and ‘Royal China cheung fun’ – a must-order selection of prawn, beef with water chestnut, and roast pork wrapped in wide rice noodles, and covered in sweet soy sauce. The original branch in Queensway does a roaring trade on a Sunday: the doors open at 11am and there is a queue pretty much from then until 3pm to nab a spot in the bustling dining room. Bookings are not taken. Sunday lunch for two with drinks and service will cost you around £40.
