How to order Dim Sum, Youtube style

A great joy of Chinese families is to go together Saturday or Sunday morning and have dim sum (點心 or lit. “little hearts”). We typically call it yum cha (飲茶) or literally, “drinking tea” as you would sip tea with all these great food. Typically, the brunch time affair has a soundtrack of loud noises (either from crashing plates, angry waitresses, or Chinese mothers yelling) while you share the the variety of small dishes that you share with your family.

Well, fortunately for me I met some awesome Chinese brethren while eating at Sikdorak, a Korean bbq place . .. hey, it’s Hawaii we like to mix it up. Anyway, this funny video ensued of how to order Chinese dim sum (albeit in Sushi ii . . . yeah, we had fun during the night), please watch my awesome Chinese buddies telling you how to do it dim sum style!

Ignore the loud person in the background (as that would be me . . .). Thanks Melissa for filming this video. Hmmm, now that they said all that I want to go back to Hong Kong for some food.
