Dim sum ("Heart's Desire," literally meaning "touch 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. Yum cha (literally "drinking tea") is the term used to describe the entire dining experience, especially in contemporary Cantonese.

Heart's Desire is a fanlisting for Dim Sum, currently owned and maintained by me, Jinnienn Okada since March 2014. Before that time, it was run and maintainced by Bloo starting in February 2009. The fanlisting was oringally owned by Sara however and adopted out to Hyony, and then passed on to Bloo. I adopted it after that.
The fanlisting is listed at A Love Letter fan listing collective. It has also been approved at The Fanlistings Network under the Food/Drinks: General category. The current layout is v2.0 and was designed with the help of Adobe Photoshop CS2 and Dreamweaver MX. Please refer to the exit page for a complete list of external resources used in the making of this site. The layout was designed and coded entirely by Bloo who was nice enough to allow us use of her fabulous layout!
