Literarily translated to mean heart's delight in Cantonese, dim sum are small dishes traditionally served in teahouses. A selection is passed by tables on a cart or tray and the customer picks what they want to eat. Usually each plate has a set price and at the end of the feast, the plates are counted to figure out the price of the meal. Dim sum consists of a variety of mouth watering savory and sweet dishes such as fried and steamed dumplings, shrimp balls, fried noodles, and Chinese pastries.
