Dim Sum hails from the province of Canton in Southern China. Essentially ‘Chinese Tapas’ it is a serving style rather than a food itself; small portions of food designed to share. You can find everything from steamed buns to dumplings, to deep fried snacks, to seafood, meat and sweet snacks on a Dim Sum menu. Dim Sum arrived into Singapore with the early Chinese immigrants from Canton and Hong Kong. It is a firm favourite on our food tour in Hong Kong.
