Chung Ying Cantonese Restaurant 中英 - Chinese Quarter, Birmingham

Free time means blogging time. 😉

Dim sum feast time!!!

The last time I went out to eat dim sum was a week before going to Birmingham! 😂

We went to a Cantonese restaurant which was Miss Wine's choice, as originally she wanted us to try a Malaysian place a few doors down, but it looked busy and there was nowhere to put Baby B's pram...

Chung Ying 中英 (Canto: jong ying; Mando: zhong ying) could have several meanings: "Chinese and English", "Middle of England", "In England/Britain". I don't know what the owners intention was but the name fairly fits in. 😆 It's located in the middle of Chinese Quarter in Birmingham.


So we had a few minutes wait before going to our table.

And on the menu was KANGAROO! OMG. A Cantonese restaurant selling kangaroo meat. Woah. That was totally unexpected. Did I order any? Of course not!

We all ordered our dishes and dim sum... I think I ordered too much. But it makes up for the evening meal on the train journey. A sandwich for dinner. A feast for lunch the next day. 

I ordered my favourite Shredded Pork Crispy noodles. Practically had the whole plate as the other two didn't like the mushrooms in it. ¬_¬ Seriously, why do people hate mushrooms?

Miss Pinky had her squid as usual. It was definitely fried differently. A different type of batter. It tasted quite crispy.

Miss Wine ordered the veggie spring rolls... Tasted ok!

Fried prawn balls with thousand sauce on top. Yummilicious!! I could eat these all over again!

Fried beef balls. Very different! Interesting to be honest. I would order these again. ^_^

Some steamed dumplings...


Elks in curry sauce. Yum yum. A bit spicy. Miss Pinky thought they look slimy.

Miss Wine ordered this... Not sure what this was to be honest. Hahahahah.

Miss Pinky had the gizzard / tripe. She loves the stuff.

But she found the ribs not to her liking. I think she thought they were the ones with extra sauce like the ones you get in the American steakhouses. She hardly had any of this... Too bad.

Total came to £52.10. Not too bad for three people. Although I feel like I ordered the majority. Roughly ~£17 each. It's good. I paid the majority and Miss Pinky the rest. LOL! Treating our host Miss Wine. 😉

My geeky rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (5/5)

Good points:
- Polite service, one of the waiters even helped me with Baby B's pram down the stairs even when I said she's a bit heavy (sorry Baby B 😅)
- Reasonable prices... we apparently chose the ok cheapish dishes on the menu
- Very spacious restaurant
- Food came out reasonably quick... and steaming hot

Bad points:
- Can't think of any! It just tastes as good as the stuff in London.
