[Because We Share]

I’m now on an exchange in Mexico. When my foreign friends ask me what is the most famous and delicious food in Hong Kong, I answer without any doubt, “Dim Sum”!

Unlike any set meals in foreign countries, Hong Kong Dim Sum is small but delicate. Each dish may only contain three small pieces. For those who first come to Hong Kong, you may have a question, “Dim sum are so small. How can we be full?” That is the main characteristic of Hong Kong Dim Sum.

When we are going to eat Dim Sum, we usually go with a large group of friends. Each of us order different dishes, and try each of them together. If we like the flavor, we can order the same dish again and again. It is not easy to get full when having Dim Sum, so we can try many different things at the same time. More importantly, the amount of each dish is small, so even if we order more than we expected, we can still finish them easily without making waste.

Perhaps due to these special characteristics, we learn the happiness of sharing. And because we share, the food is even more delicious.

現在我正身處異地,每當有人問起香港有甚麼特色食品,第一樣推介的一定是香港點心。與外國一人份套餐不同,香港點心小巧、精緻,一籠只有三數件,剛來港的朋友們可能會有這樣的疑問:「這麼少,怎夠吃呢?」但這正正是香港點心最大的特色,呼朋喚友,坐下聊天喝茶,把各種特色點心全都叫了一遍,每樣都試,喜歡的便多叫幾籠。又因為點心的分量少,不容易飽,所以就算叫多了,最後仍可以把它吃完,不易做成浪費。或許真因為港式點心的這些特色,所以我們學會了分享的快樂。因為分享,所以美味。
