Dim sum is literally translated to mean “touch the heart” and the associated Cantonese phrase yum cha means “to drink tea.” Taken together, dim sum is a meal of small dishes served with tea comprised of a collection of savoury and sweet tastes from a variety of steamed and fried buns, dumplings and rolls.
Our Dim Sum Platter combines easy, steam at home, restaurant-quality dim sum with three amazing recipes for the necessary dipping sauces! We have also thrown in a full-size bottle of Lee Kum Kee Premium Soy Sauce and May Ploy Sweet Chilli.
This huge meal box consists of 86 beautiful dumplings. However, as they are frozen, they can be eaten over and over again. Pass on the boring nachos this weekend and introduce Dim Sum at your next big night in
