Dim Sum

Dim sum is a style of Chinese Canton cuisine prepared as small bite-sized portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. Dim sum is also well known for the unique way it is served in some restaurants, whereby fully cooked and ready-to-serve dim sum dishes are carted around the restaurant for customers to choose their orders while seated at their tables.
Similar small dishes exist in other varieties of Chinese cuisine, sometimes known in English as dim sum, from the pronunciation of the same two characters for "dim sum" in Cantonese.
