Fully embracing the Christmas spirit, experimental Chinese takeaway Zing Zing has created novel Christmas Dinner wontons. 

The festive dish is made up of turkey breast, bacon and stuffing, accompanied with a cranberry sauce for dipping.

“To mark the festive season we wanted to create a dish that represented Christmas in one bite,” said Joshua Magidson, founder of Zing Zing.

“By putting a whole turkey dinner into a single wonton, we’ve created something so Christmassy that every bite makes you want to see your family and play board games.”

A portion of four wontons costs £5.95 and are available for purchase at either of the North London branches in Kentish Town and Finsbury Park.

Initially, executive chef at Zing Zing Jeremy Pang had planned on unrolling reindeer dumplings for the Christmas market. However, following food testing it was decided that the Christmas Dinner wontons were favoured over the dumplings.

This isn’t the first time the takeaway has experimented in the kitchen. In previous years, ingredients including Haggis and Crème Eggs were incorporated into recipes.
