Dim Sum - The Perfect Breakfast May 06, 2007
Dim Sum is famous in Hong Kong, the Cantonese have made this cuisine into a culture and an art form. Intricate pieces created from 'won ton' and seasoned minced meat skin together with steamed buns make the perfect accompaniment for Chinese tea. There are also a range of 'friedy' things like mince prawn wrapped in beancurd skin, spare ribs, spring rolls and baked buns.

A simple meal of 3 baskets of tasty treats and tea comes to about US$3 for a normal dim sum restaurant in Penang. In a high-class restaurant, you are expected to fork out US$15. What's the difference, you ask? The ambiance for one and better quality some say. You are also paying for the chef's skill, I might add. For me and my family, I know where its good and cheap. The best of both worlds.
