Dim Sum in Singapore

2375988_115552083358_2

Dim sum means ‘touch your heart’ and with as many as 150 items on a restaurant menu, and 2,000 in the entire range, it is a challenge to not find something you love. As Cantonese people tend to avoid fried foods early in the day, steamed dishes dominate most dim sum menus. There are also snack-sized portions of pan-fried, deep-fried, and baked served in bamboo containers, which are designed to be eaten communally and washed down with tea. Hence, going for dim sum is known as yum cha, which literally means ‘drinking tea.’ Usually a brunch or lunch affair, it is a common form of family, co-worker and other group get-togethers.

Today, dim sum restaurants come in all shapes and sizes, from straight shooting to high falutin’. Start with one of the large mid-priced eateries where in the midst of boisterous conversations you will see multiple generations gather around the table for a no-nonsense family feed and office workers enjoying a short but effective break from the daily grind.

Source: Discover Hong Kong

Popular dishes in Singapore include various types such as: Char Siu Bao, Egg Custard Tarts, Flower Scallion Rolls, Har Gau, Mango Pudding, Mini Spring Rolls, Potstickers, Sesame Seed Balls, Shrimp Toast, Shu Mai and Spareribs with Hoisin Sauce. Dim Sum is prepared as small bite-sized or individual portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates.
