Dim sum: Touch your heart

Dim sum fun rollsDim sum beef ballsDim sum prawn dumplingsDim sumAhhh, 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 … 🙂


About multiculturalmarriage

I'm glad to be part of a multicultural marriage! I grew up in the U.S. but am married to an African husband. This makes life challenging, creative and cool - all at the same time!
