What is Dim Sum

Dim Sum literally means "touch the heart" in Chinese and is a dining tradition originating thousands of years ago in small tea houses lining heavily traveled roads. Focusing on small dishes meant for sharing, these small tea houses were meant to provide nourishment and sustenance for travel-weary guests, usually merchants and traders.

Cantonese Dim Sum is among the four pillars of Cantonese Cuisine. The mainstay tradition of tea houses serving small plates for sharing, carried thousands of years to present day where endless tea is served with a wonderful variation of sweet & savory small share plates. Ranging from delicate pastries, to light seafood dumplings to hearty, glutinous sticky rice, Cantonese dim sum is still enjoyed today by the millions.

The region of Jiang Nan (or South of the river) is comprised of mainly Shanghai, Canton, & ZheJiang cuisines. The South-Eastern coast of China prides itself in heavy seafood oriented dishes with a focus on the natural taste of ingredients. A nice balance of vegetarian dishes, light pork dishes, and even subtly sweet seafoods, Jiang Nan Cuisine ranks among some of the top cuisines in the world.

Among Shanghai cuisine, the most world renown dish is the Shanghai Pork Soup Dumpling. Thin, flour wraps of juicy pork broth served with sliced ginger vinaigrette, this delicacy is a crowd favorite in any country. Enjoy four different pork-filling based soup dumplings from original, crab & pork, extra spicy, and pan fried. Other favorites include the donut-like consistency of pumpkin tarts, curry chicken dumplings, and vegan friendly vegetable bao buns.
