Dim sum originated in southern China in the Guangdong province, now is serving all over the world, If you wondering what a dim sum is well, it is a Cantonese dumpling that is generally prepared as small bite-sized portions of food and served in small steamer baskets. Dim sum is also linked with the tradition of yum cha ( drinking tea ), which has its roots in Hong Kong. That was when the tea house were established along the roadside.
If you are a newbie to trying dim sums, then the classic dim sums you must try are the Har Gow ( steam shrimp dumpling), Shao Mai ( small steam dumpling with pork, shrimp filling or both ) and Char Siu Bao ( steam bbq pork buns ). It is believed that the yum cha experience is quite incomplete without them.
