Ahhh, dim sum … the original Chinese buffet. Originally a Cantonese custom that translates to “touch your heart,” this meal sprung up around teahouses in China and continue to this day (according to this very prestigious source).
We recently went on a dim sum lunch and ate a variety of delectable fun rolls, beef balls, shrimp dumplings and other delicacies.
One of the beauties of multicultural marriages is the different types of food you get to taste. I’ve sampled African foods while my African husband now knows how to use chopsticks!
Once he confided to me that he thought Chinese people were so small because they couldn’t eat very much with such small, thin wooden sticks as eating utensils. Boy, did we prove him wrong … 🙂
