This is not your average brunch.
BEFORE WE START, FOR THOSE IN THE DARK…
Dim sum (written 點心 in Chinese, pronounced “dian xin” in Mandarin) is a Cantonese-style meal of small, bite-sized proportions that is usually taken on a weekend morning.

Here are some of the most delectable dim sum dishes you'll need to try:
Fried Radish Cakes
Radish cakes (or sometimes called “turnip cakes”) are made of shredded radish that's been mixed with flour and rice, then mashed and fried into cake bricks. The result is a bed of soft, starchy filling with browned, crispy edges.

Rice Noodle Rolls
Rice noodles in dim sum are usually served as a thin, wide layer of rice noodle wrap that's filled with shrimp, pork, beef, and/or vegetables. It's then doused in soy sauce for a delicious contrast of starch and acid.
