A little bit of my heart... 飲茶

I love dim sum and I love going for dim sum with my family. I feel like it's our bonding time.

Dim sum is a very popular type of chinese food . Dim sum consists of small plates of dumplings, rice noodles, and variety of yummy food. My favorite chinese restaurants serves dim sum in the morning. They give us a list and here are some of the items we ordered:

Braised beef stew

Steamed pork spare ribs

Some kind of bun filled with buttery goodness. Look at it flowing!
Custard bun

I love going to a chinese restaurant for dim sum because of the variety of food. I can order serveral dishes and because everything comes in such small portions, I can have something different every time we go. Also, it's a great time to watch the people around me and enjoy the thousand year old chinese tradtiton.

I know a lot of friends and family that go out for dim sum every weekend. I think it's great bonding time for family and is a great ritual. I love to just sit there, talking to my family, enjoying my cup of hot tea, and watching the food that goes by in heated carts and selecting my food spontaneuosly. My little bit of heaven...
