What Are Dim Sums"?
What is a Chinese tea house? It is a Cantonese restaurant specializing in serving a particular kind of southern Chinese lunch which is called dim sum. Its literal translation is "dot heart." Poetically, it means "heart's delight"! And what an appropriate explanation, for dim sums are delicious tiny little bite-size Chinese finger foods of stuffed savory meat or sweet dumplings-either deep-fried, baked or steamed, and served with a variety of tasty, hot or spicy dips. Dim sum can also be braised, marinated meats in aromatic and succulent sauces. For more substantial offerings, you can have noodles in soups with different garnishes or the more familiar pan-fried-style chowmein with different meats and vegetables. Another perennial favorite isjoak, a thick rice soup usually served with a Chinese fried bread called Deep-Fried Devils.
