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.
If you are more fond of dunplings, 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.
