Food is an integral part of Chinese culture. It is the centerpiece of every important milestone among families and friends. Aside from sustenance, the Chinese attach symbolism to certain food and produce, mostly symbolizing harmony, prosperity, and good fortune. Chinese food has almost become a way of life, with China-originating dishes such as fried rice, noodles, and various chicken foods making their way to the favorite food list of many. Combining exotic flavors with great services and availability, Chinese food slowly climbed the rungs of the ladder to emerge as the top ethnic cuisine in Malaysia. Here are some Chinese dishes:- 

Dim Sum

Dim Sum always been a comfort food in Malaysia. Dim sum is the Chinese style of serving an array of small plates of savory and sweet foods, that together, make up a delicious meal. These feasts are traditionally enjoyed with family and friends over long brunches, accompanied by piping hot cups of tea. Some popular dim sum dishes include steamed, boiled, and fried dumplings, bite-sized meats, steamed buns, spring rolls, rice and noodle dishes, and creamy desserts. The fun is in sharing the different dishes and enjoying the variety of tastes.
