Dim sum literally means "touch the heart". It is also associated with early morning "yam cha" It is becoming more of a Chinese culinary culture in Malaysia with the mushrooming and opening of many dim sum shops. They usually open from early morning to noon. Many people enjoy their dim sum with a hot pot of their favorite tea, which helps in the digestion and washes away the fats and saltiness in some of the dishes. Here i am enjoying my yam cha with friends, at Restaurant Jin Xuan Hong Kong located at Damansara Jaya, Petaling Jaya.

One of my favorite dishes as well. My family and I were in Bandar Seri Begawan last month and we had halal dim sum. My favorite is the shrimp dumpling. Delicious as always.
