Get it? “THEM SOME YUMMY DISHES!?” Nevermind my lame puns. Anyway, for those of you that are unfamiliar with Dim Sum, it’s similar to Tapas where you order a bunch of small dishes of food as a meal. Except, when you go to a Dim Sum restaurant, there are actually people pushing cart-full of different foods around and they come by your table and ask if you’re interested in any of what they have. If you are, you order it and they mark it on your tab.
Well, it’s perfectly good times if you’re one of those people that want to know what something looks like before you order it, or if you’re picky, because you can see and pick out exactly what you want and then eat it immediately! Also, don’t forget to order some tea. After all, the tea part of it is actually a main part of Dim Sum. In mandarin, for example we call Dim Sum “飲茶” which literally translates to “Drinking Tea”.
So, have you been to Dim Sum? And what are your favorite dishes? Maybe Shu-mai? Maybe Radish cakes? Meatballs? Maybe even the chicken feet??
——All pictures are from my recent visit to Golden House Dim Sum Restaurant in Duluth, Georgia. I recommend it as a place to try out some Dim Sum. The Restaurant is HUGE, and the food is pretty damn good. Here’s more information about Golden House: http://www.yelp.com/biz/golden-house-duluth.
