The term “dim sum” has a literal translation of “touching the heart”, and this double entendre truly reflects the effect of savouring these bite-sized creations. Served in traditional bamboo baskets, there is a myriad of choices from vegetarian fillings to juicy meat ones.

The best part about dim sum is the fact that it can be eaten at any time of the day. In Singapore, there has been a significant rise in halal-certified dim sum eateries that cater to the expansive Muslim market. Our Muslim friends need not miss out on the good stuff now.
