Dim Sum: A Classy Alternative for Quinceañeras who Love Asian Cuisine

Alicia Monsalve

Dim sum type food would be a simple and fun way to allow your guests to try different flavors of food.

Similar to Spanish hors d’oeuvres or Mexican appetizers, Dim Sum is a southern Chinese cuisine which involves a wide range of light dishes served in small portions and ideal for a family meal.

Perhaps this is why the origin of the cuisine’s name translates to “food that touches the heart.” The best part is that this meal is served with tea, which guarantees a good digestion.

The millennial Chinese cuisine always provides interesting alternatives to add fantasy and glamour to any celebration. Although these dishes are traditionally consumed during the day, and the Dim Sum menu is served in restaurants until 3 p.m., the Chinese cuisine is associated with reunions, celebrations, weddings, and family. It is an alternative that reflects the cultural diversity in the United States and perfect for bi-cultural families.

An Appetizing and Diverse Cuisine
The Dim Sum recipe that has become popular in the West and the rest of Asia is the one from Hong Kong, although the dish originated south of China, in the Cantonese region. This cuisine includes many dishes that vary from salty to sweet and was created to provide meals for the Silk Road travelers and farm workers after a day of hard work.

There are several dishes that include boiled, fried, baked, and salted servings. Restaurants usually offer a buffet bar with cold and ready-to-eat dishes. Hot dishes or meals that need more preparation are ordered from the table, either at the same time or during the course of the feast. The most widely-recognized dishes are those made with fine rice dough and stuffed with chicken, meat, pork, seafood, vegetables or a combination of these seasoned with several sauces, such as Chinese mustard and soy sauce, of course.

Dishes on the Table
Diners usually order five or six dishes and happily share them around the table while accepting a couple offerings. This alternative allows you to choose a wide range of dishes that can satisfy the many tastes of your guests, including those who are more old-fashioned and can miss the traditional pozole.

* There is also a variety of sweet dishes that can be served to complement the salty menu and delight your guests.

* Although serving tea is not part of the Hispanic tradition, it doesn’t hurt to try since it is a common belief that it contributes to a good digestion as well as a longer life.

A Taste of Dim Sum
If you think this is a good idea for your banquet, the best thing to do is go to a Chinese restaurant that serves Dim Sum on a Sunday. Remember to arrive before 3 p.m. You will see how people chat excitedly while waiters leave the check on the table every time a new dish is ordered. Maybe you can witness a family reunion celebrated with the lovely taste of Dim Sum. If you and your parents like this dish, you can begin to plan your buffet with a taste of Hong Kong, one of the most modern and cosmopolitan cities in the world.
