Think finger food (but use your chopsticks!) by way of Spanish tapas. Served directly from stacks of bamboo containers atop wheeled carts, and traditionally accompanied by tea, Dim Sum is a sampler's delight.

The best-known variety are the steamed or fried dumplings with various fillings, but there's much more to Dim Sum. Click here for a partial rundown. [Discover section] Dim Sum is most commonly a breakfast, brunch or lunch meal, and is best enjoyed with a group in order to sample a wide variety of offerings. Just choose a dish when the cart comes by and the server will mark the price on a running tab on your table.
