Whether it is a mid-afternoon high tea or weekend brunch ritual, dim sum is a Chinese staple we cannot get enough of. Essentially comprising a variety of both steamed and deep-fried snacks, these morsels are commonly paired with freshly brewed Chinese tea.
In Singapore, many Chinese families hold this age-old tradition in high esteem and even those of other races have learnt to appreciate dim sum, creating varieties to suit their own preferences and taste buds.
