Literally meaning ‘to touch your heart’, dim sum is a Chinese eating custom which sprung from Cantonese teahouses. The art of Chinese dim sum rests on enjoying an assortment of Chinese goodies in small proportions while drinking your tea. In the olden days, travelers and farmers would often flock roadside teahouses after hours to relax while drinking their afternoon tea. Soon, these teahouses started serving small snacks with their tea, giving birth to the tradition of dim sum. Dim sum varies from savory to sweet to everything in between – anything goes! The three main types of dim sum include the dumplings, the bau (steamed or baked buns) and the spring rolls.
