Traditional Dim Sum is primarily a Cantonese tradition that (by now) the rest of the world has the opportunity to enjoy. Although not an expert connoisseur by any means (mostly curtailed by the fact that I don't particularly enjoy eating meat), I still discover new dishes every so often that I get to add to my collection of favorites! Pictures mostly from Wikipedia and links to recipes for some of these goodies.

I've left out a lot of dimsum dishes that I *don't* actually prefer. For example, I've never really liked deep fried spring rolls on their own for some reason. I like to dice them up and put them in a savory soy-based soup as an alternative to fried dough (I love the more traditional fried dough + soy milk combination too though). I also don't like some of the traditional stuff like chicken feet, pig's feet , shrimp dumplings etc. Not exactly sure why, just not into it :p Anyway, here are some of the items I do like!
