Known as Chinese small plates, dim sum has definitely gained traction in popularity in recent years.

Dim Sum has been a popular brunch meal, worthy of cult-like status, for quite some time. Essentially small food bites, dim sum originated in China as a food often paired with tea. Once a subdued, relaxed meal for hard-working farmers, dim sum has grown into a sociable affair. 

Still a popular culinary tradition in China, many restaurants begin to serve dim sum as early as 5 a.m. Dumplings, noodles, steamed greens, chicken feet, congee porridge, pork buns: dim sum includes a diverse range of ingredients that perhaps you wouldn’t dare order off a Chinese menu—but will have you hooked once you try. When those carts come by, you might not know exactly what you’re getting, but that’s half the fun.
