You heard about Dim Sum. You may have tried it before. How do you call the popular dishes in Chinese?

You are right. The translation for “笼(lóng)” should be “basket.” “笼(lóng)” are small bamboo steaming baskets. By the way, do you like “小笼包(xiǎolóngbāo)”?

Dim sum(早茶) refers to a style of Chinese food prepared as small bite-sized or individual portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. Eating dim sum at a restaurant is usually known in Cantonese as going to "drink tea" (yum cha, 飲茶), as tea is typically served with dim sum.
But 点心 refers to the different kinds of food of dim sum. And in Chinese it’s also refers to dessert and snack.
