てんしんちゃん Little Dim Sum¹ September 2005²

These cute characters are remarkable!



Translation Notes
  1. Dim sum (点心, literally meaning "touch the heart") is the name for a Chinese cuisine which involves a wide range of light dishes served alongside Chinese tea. It is usually served in the mornings until noon time at Chinese restaurants and at specialty dim sum eateries where typical dishes are available throughout the day. Dishes come in small portions and may include meat, seafood, and vegetables, as well as desserts and fruit. The items are usually served in a small steamer basket or on a small plate. Typical dim sum dishes include different types of dumplings and steamed buns. Wikipedia: Dim sum.
