Baozilnn London Bridge has debuted a brand new a la carte menu, mostly featuring a wide variety of Cantonese, Hunan, and Sichuan-inspired Dim Sum. As the restaurant now opens on Sundays, this delectable new menu is now served seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
This brilliant new offering begins with a moreish assortment mainly fried starters, fantastic with a cool beer or glass of wine. Similarly, there is a brief list of Baozilnn’s most renowned Northern Chinese Street food hits but the major focus is now on a multitude of brilliantly stunning, multicoloured dim sum.
As with all Baozilnn dishes, the emphasis is on a blend of Cantonese, Hunan, and Sichuan flavours, with only the highest quality ingredients used. There is also a wide variety of perfectly scrumptious vegan and vegetarian dumplings. Baozilnn’s new dim sum menu is available in platters or individual portions. First up is Siu Mai, and among the multicoloured wrapped bundles of bliss are Spicy Prawn, Orleans Chicken, Chicken and Mushroom, and a very outstanding San Xian.
Steamed Baozi is next, and they come in a variety of colours, flavours, and sweet and savoury alternatives. Malaysian Chicken Curry Bun, Pork with Soyabean Sauce Bun, Orleans Chicken Thigh Bun, and Vegetable Bun are a few examples. Custard Bun and the irresistible Salt Egg Yolk Custard Bun are likely to be crowd-pleasers.
Moving on to the Dumpling category, which includes, among other things, Baozilnn’s iconic traffic light Dim Sum, Prawn and Chive Dumpling, Vegetable Kohlrabi Dumpling, Har Gau, and Chicken Chiu Chow Dumpling.
Wantons doused in chilli oil are a must, and they’re available here loaded with pork and chicken, or prawns. There is frequently an excellent selection of Traditional Jiaozi Dumplings, steamed and pan-fried, loaded with veggies, chicken, prawns, and pork, as well as the ever-popular Chengdu Jiaozi, a Baozilnn Classic.
Last but not least, the return of the Xiao Long Bao, the warm and hugely irresistible Chinese Soup Dumpling, coated in vinegar. The new lineup also includes the must-try Spicy Pork Soup Large Xiao Long Bao, Chopped Chilli Mixed Seafood Soup Xiao Long Bao, and Sweet Corn Soup Xiao Long Bao, which instantly brings one back to childhood and bowls of warm sweetcorn soup served in Chinatown back in the day.
There’s a truly excellent value Dim Sum Feast lunchtime option with “Mix & Match” dim sum, that includes three plates of dumplings from the lunchtime menu for just £12.90, rather than the customary £5.90 per item. The Dim Sum Feast is served everyday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
