Dim Sum is all about steamy bamboo baskets, stir and deep fried fresh ingredients, dumplings and other goodies, served in small portions.

Literally means “to touch the heart” (#guilty) and is considered the biggest flag of Cantonese food. We can’t avoid going to these restaurants and not leaving completely full. Everything is extremely fresh, well-cooked and delicious! For the brave, at Estoril Mandarim, order the Chicken feet in black bean sauce – trust us, forget the feet, this is a delicacy!

Chinese New Year hot tip: Estoril Mandarim dim sum is only served at lunch so make a reservation in advance because it’s always packed. You must order the Jasmin green tea which is incredibly inexpensive (1,00€). Avoid going outside the lunch time, otherwise be prepared to leave at least 50% of your paycheck there (ouch!)
