Dim sum

It is a steamed, fried or baked small-portioned dish served in steamer baskets. It consists of various buns, dumplings and rice noodle rolls filled with a range of ingredients. Usually it is eaten for breakfast or lunch.

Coming to Hong Kong for the first time, order dim sum. The dish is made in the form of bit-size portions served in steamer baskets or on plates of a small size. Dim sum is usually paired with tea. There is also a tradition of having endless cups of tea and dim sum which is called yum cha in Cantonese. The filling may be different: beef, chicken, pork, prawns, etc. Usually the dish serves as breakfast or brunch. The best dim sum is served at Yan Toh Heen.

Wontons
Wontons

Wontons are a sort of dumplings made of dough spread as a square wrapper and a filling, most commonly ground pork or shrimp with flour and spices. Generally, they are boiled and served in soup.

If you are more fond of dumplings, try wontons which are made with pork or shrimps with garlic and spices. A square wrapper is spread flat in the palm of one’s hand, then a small amount of filling is put into the center and a desired form is shaped, the extra air is pressed out of the wrap to avoid destruction when cooked.  They are usually boiled or deep fried. Come to Qi House of Sichuan to enjoy this tasty dish.
