4. Dim Sum

Chinese Food

A main feature of southern, Cantonese Chinese food, 点心 (diǎnxin) is a favorite of both Chinese and internationals!  The idea of Dim Sum is to share small portions of many steamed dishes.  Sharing is caring!  Popular items include barbecue buns, chicken feet, bean-flavored spare ribs, cakes, and shrimp dumplings.  

The activity of talking with family/friends and sharing dim sum is called “drinking tea.”  This is usually done on a Saturday or Sunday, late morning to late afternoon.
