Dim Sum, Yum Cha, Dumplings. Whatever you choose to call these little bites
of deliciousness, one thing is for sure - they are sure to delight.
The husband and I started our Dim Sum obsession on our first date at The Orient in
Melrose Arch over 4 years ago. We've tried to make our own (not very successfully),
we've dined in some of the most upmarket Dim Sum restaurants and feasted
on very authentic Yum Cha in very questionable venues.
One of the stops during our Honeymoon was in China -
the Dim Sum were unbelievable!

I especially fell in love with xiaolong bao,
some of the best we tasted were at Din Tai Fung.
In Joburg, the best xiaolong bao is served up by Gwefey in Sandton.

Some of the most authentic and un-fussy Yum Cha
can be had at Shun Deck in Cyrildene.
