ATLANTA, GA - Dim sum is a Cantonese term that means 'little food' while in Mandarin it is called Dianxin which means 'little from the heart' or 'touches your heart'. By the small portions per serving and the amount is not much, only about three to four pieces in one plate or container of bamboo steaming.

This snack originated from the Silk Road, especially in parts of Central Asia, wherein the Han Dynasty was a route that was often passed by traders, laborers, and farmers. farmers and merchants need a place to rest and then stop by for a moment to the tavern, to enjoy tea and snacks. This snack is what we now know with dim sum and then came the term yum cha which means to drink tea together while eating dim sum.

Initially, dim sum was only cooked by steaming and served in a "later" (round steaming made of bamboo), but along with popularity, various innovations developed dim sum variants including how to cook it. Currently, dim sum is not only cooked by steaming, but also fried, roasted, steamed, or using a special technique of "fried in water". The variety and taste of dim sum are greatly influenced by the restaurants that served it.
