The Essential Guide To Dim Sum


The folks over at BuzzFeed Food have put together this marvelous Essential Guide To Dim Sum. The field guide includes pictures of dim sum offerings, organized by food preparation style, then sub-categorized by physical appearance. Each dish is accompanied by its name in three languages (English, Mandarin Chinese, and Cantonese), along with symbolic information similar to a clothing care tag that encodes information like recommended method of eating.

Save some radish cakes for me.

    Here, in Australia, we call it Yum Cha. Most of the names of the dishes are the same, except a certain dish is called a dim sim – the SIU MAI.

    Ah, wikipedia to the rescue. en.wikipedia.org/…/Yum_cha

    "In the U.S. and UK, the phrase dim sum is often used in place of yum cha; in Cantonese, dim sum (點心) refers to the wide range of small dishes, whereas yum cha, or "drinking tea", refers to the entire meal."
