Dim sum literally translates ‘touch the heart lightly’. Legend has it that the Royal Chefs of the Imperial Court, many centuries ago, created intricate little delicacies to delight the palette and ‘touch the heart’ of the Chinese Emperors.

These little morsels are so delicious that it gained popularity throughout Asia. Traditionally eaten for breakfast, as the popularity and demand for dim sum grew, it was served for brunch and lunch; and nowadays found any time of the day in different types of Asian food establishments.
