Hong Kong Dim Sum Video

I have recently assembled a video about the most popular Hong Kong Dim Sums for my other website.  I would like to share it here.  See if you have tasted any or all of them.  

The background song is called Cha Sha Bao 义燒包 by Zhuang Xue Zhong.  Cha Sha Bao is one of the most classic Cantonese dim sums in Hong Kong.  We love it so much, hence there is a song about it.  The song is over half a century old and the one by Zhuang is a new version.

'Sit down, enjoy a cup of tea and eat a bao' is a very sought after life style of Hong Kong Cantonese.   In fact bao's are really important in our culinary world. May be I'll assemble a bao video next time.

Now you've viewed all the gems of Hong Kong dim sum. Traditional Hong Kong Cantonese breakfast is usually a combo of congee and rice rolls.  The economy version could be plain congee with plain rice rolls or rice rolls stuffed with deep fried dough.  The luxury version could be congee and rice rolls both stuffed with meat of your choice.  In this video, you'll find them all except the plain congee.

Hope you enjoy!  Have a great 2014!
