Over the weekend, my parents, husband and I ate Dim Sum at the Yangtze in St. Louis Park. Dim Sum is a brunch tradition in Southern China. In Cantonese, Dim Sum translates as
 "to touch the heart." For those of you who may not know me, I would ask for Dim Sum or more specifically Sesame Balls as my last meal if I had to choose... it literally touches my heart! 
Aside from the delicious food, I enjoy the dining experience as well. Instead for ordering directly from a menu, carts roll around stopping at tables with trays and steamers full of dumplings. The saying, "we eat with our eyes" is in full effect here. It can be tempting to ask for everything you see all at once, but I always try to order a few at a time so that we may savor each morsel slowly.
