Dim Sum

IMG_20140312_122653It is a bit difficult to write about Hong Kong without bringing up dim sum (directly translated in Cantonese it would be drink tea (yum cha)). This is one of the key dining experiences in the city as not only is it deeply rooted into the daily routine but it plays a key role in the culture of Hong Kong.


Dim sum is similar to brunch but it is something that has several time slots in a day. One can go early morning which can be as early as 7am or closer to noon which can be around 10-11am and even late in the afternoon as an afternoon tea. One of the unique things about this particular dining experience is that food is often served on a cart and in small portion sizes so you can have a variety of items from baked, friend to desserts all in one session.


I have had dim sum many times over with my family in Toronto but it was definitely a different atmosphere in Hong Kong. If anyone of you gets the opportunity to visit Hong Kong then dim sum is an absolute must!!
