Made in China, Westminster [London]

I had a dim sum lunch at Made in China in Westminster, which opened a couple of months ago replacing Atami, a Japanese restaurant. Most items on the dim sum menu are around 3 pounds per order, and the dim sum is available all day. On the other hand, the dim sum menu is a little small, and doesn't have for example any desserts (no egg tarts, sesame balls, etc).

The dumplings were all quite good, though not exceptional. The chicken feet were disappointing, it seems like they were not cooked long enough so they weren't melting like the best ones I've had. The crispy prawns (prawns wrapped in a crispy pancake pastry) were certainly crispy, but not particularly flavorful. It reminded me a bit of the texture of a Thai crispy catfish salad.

I probably wouldn't go back for just dim sum, but it would be an interesting place to go on an evening and be able to order a few dim sum dishes along with some other dishes from the (mostly cantonese) menu.
