Hong Kong Dim Sum Photo Gallery
My dim sum photo collection truly reflects how much I like dim sum. Local Hong Kong people also call it 'yum cha'. I do dim sum lunch or breakfast at least once a week. One thing interesting about dim sum or yum cha is - the more people, the more fun. You can enjoy a great variety of dishes when you have a big group. Whenever I have overseas friends in town, I must take them to yum cha.
You must have at least one dim sum lunch when you visit Hong Kong. Let us preview some of the most popular dishes.
