Hong Kong Dimsum Brunch
This time I would like to introduce Hong Kong cuisine to you all, after the delicious Argentine steak last month! It's difficult to find real Hong Kong cuisine (which is from my city) in Italy but recently I discovered a new Hong Kong restaurant, MU Dimsum, in Milan.
What's "dim sum"?
"Dim sum" is a Cantonese cuisine prepared as small bite-sized portions of food served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. Dim sum dishes are usually served with tea and together form a full tea brunch. The Cantonese tradition of having endless cups of tea and dim sum is also called "yum cha" (飲茶), which means "drink tea" in Cantonese.
Dim sum culture in Hong Kong:
In Hong Kong, many restaurants start serving dim sum as early as 5am. It is a tradition for the elderly to gather to eat dim sum after morning exercises. In southern China, "yum cha" is treated as a weekend family day. We Hong Kong people grew up with dim sum, which is like Italian people grew up with pasta!
