LONDON, April 11, 2011 - Grand Imperial London has put a spin on authentic Hong Kong cuisine by
creating a collection of exquisite chocolate dim sum dumplings - ideal for
chocolate lovers looking to indulge in an Easter celebration with Asian

Each crispy dumpling is freshly prepared and filled with a warm silky
chocolate sauce made with 70% cacao. The platter comes with four individual
parcels; the crispy 'Canton Cracker' pastry, the 'Pumpkin Bundle', a
miniature pumpkin made with pumpkin essence and lemon zest, the 'Cashew
Crescent', a half moon pastry topped with cashew nuts and icing sugar and the
'Coconut Doughnut' rolled in coconut shavings and tangerine zest.

These delectable chocolate infused dumplings are the work of art of Grand
Imperial's Head Chef Leung and dim sum Chef Sai Feng Zeng.

Grand Imperial's Head Chef Leung says: "We enjoy bringing a touch of
contemporary flair to all our authentic dishes here at Grand Imperial. We
Chinese have quite a sweet tooth and we love our Green Tea Puddings and Warm
Custard Tarts. Making chocolate dim sum was a great way to combine all the
expert practices used to create our traditional dim sum recipes, but using a
universal sweet treat such as chocolate, and we thought there was no better
time to launch this than for the forthcoming Easter holidays."

The restaurant in London Victoria (, located within
landmark heritage hotel, The Grosvenor, also offers guests an assortment of
delicately prepared savoury dim sum as well as other Cantonese specialties
beautifully prepared by Chinese culinary genius Chef Leung in authentic Hong
style and contemporary flourish.

Grand Imperial's mixed chocolate dim sum platter is available now. Each
parcel is also available individually in servings of three.
