Yum Cha, also known as dim sum
and tien sin, is a collection of little snacks served to accompany tea. It is a tradition that began in Chinese tea houses aroung 500 years ago.
Many dishes, primarily breakfast fare but now also lunch and dinner, are served, usually from trolleys piled high with steaming baskets. Popular yum cha dishes include custard tarts, dumplings such as siew mai (filled with shrimps and pork) and steamed won tons.
