Dim Sum and Soup Festival at Akari& Koko
Dim Sum is a Chinese meal of small plates which translates to ‘touch the heart”. There are many myths surrounding the origins of dim sum, the most famous one dating back to 10th century where chefs of the royal court made the dim sums in order to ‘touch the hearts of the Chinese emperors. Dim sum had a simple purpose; to satisfy the soul rather than the appetite. There are many varieties of Dim sums, ranging from dumplings, steamed buns, wraps and noodle rolls which are often filled with a mixture of seafood, meat and vegetables. However, the culture behind these Chinese delicacies remains the same; it is a food to be enjoyed surrounded by people that you love.
