Dim sum history

Chinese dim sum, originated from Guang Dong, is one of the famous dishes in the world food. Because of its small size, delicated art works, its background philosophy is hoping people can try as much as different tasty and kinds of food in a single meal. Shrimp dumplings, siu mai, and various kinds of buns are the most popular dishes.

Different from the other Guang Dong dishes, dim sum is more about the freshness and the flavours of the ingredients that the chef used. Cooking methods are mainly steamed or slightly fried as this is believed it can preserve the original taste of the food. Eating dim sum in a Chinese restaurant in the morning or during lunch time, called "yum cha", is one of the most popular practice for Hong Kong people.
