Ping Pong Dim Sum Best Brunch in DC

So I had the chance late last year to check out Ping Pong Dim Sum. They sent me a coupon to get a free drink and that got me to come in and check it out. I believe I ordered the Chinese mule which is sharp and refreshing with vodka and sake shaken with fresh ginger, coriander and limes, topped with ginger beer. I love anything with ginger beer. Ping Pong Dim Sum has amazing dim sum as well if you’ve never had it.
