Dimsum Highlights

Guangzhou is a wonderful place for excellent dimsum. For nearly two weeks I was able to sample some of the best dimsum the city has to offer. Below are a few highlights in no particular order. This represents several dimsum meals.  Later I’ll do another post and discuss the world of eating dimsum in more detail.

  1. Hey, you actually ate the chicken feet ?! When going out for dim sum with Muslim co-worker, I found it was is very hard to find him any dim sum without pork. Even the “beef” ball (the last picture) has some pork mixed in. I suggested him to try chicken feet but that’s the only choice definitely without pork 😉

  2. Yes I did. Actually chicken feet are tastier than most people think. Think of the skin on fried chicken. Not much meat, but nonetheless, if you can get past it emotionally, they are not bad.
    True, it is tough being a Muslim in China. I have a very good friend who is a Chinese Muslim and he has told me of the challenges. Fortunately, there are good, kosher Muslim restaurants all over China. Of course, that does not apply to dimsum, which do have lots of pork.

  3. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate to this superb blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle
    for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.
    I look forward to new updates and will talk about this site with my
    Facebook group. Talk soon! NewExams.com

  4. Yum. Did you know the little custard pies were originally from the Portuguese? My other dim sum trivia is that in Australia you can get terrific dim sum, but only if you ask for yum cha.

  5. The Dim sum here looks great! I haven’t had egg tarts or Chinese broccoli in a while, I hope to eat some soon.

  6. I have had my fair share of dim sum over the years. While I do enjoy dim sum I still favor soup dumplings of all the choices. I think that the culture surrounding dumpling eating encourages people to work together and further enjoy together and share with one another.

  7. I’ve never had dimsum as it is pretty expensive in the United States. I hear it’s really good, though. I would love to go to China some day and try the dimsum there. I’ve heard it’s a lot more affordable and probably a lot better in general. All the food in the post looks really appetizing, especially all the buns and pastries. The concept is great, too, as I’ve always found that I don’t really like having just one big meal and eating only that. I like a lot of variety in what I eat.
