San Diego Dim Sum Tour

Jun 5 - ongoing

Are you a foodie? Have you tried traditional Cantonese dim sum--the small plate experience, the chopsticks, the steam-heated carts, the stacked steamer baskets, the lively conversations? The Tea!

Perhaps you've never had the opportunity to learn the immense history involved with dim sum from a Cantonese-American guide (dim sum = "to touch the heart!").

This is your chance! For a limited time, you can join Wild Foodie Tours to enjoy a truly unique dining experience! We'll brunch on Cantonese-style dim sum, served fresh from traditional push-carts & steamer baskets. You'll learn about dim sum's Silk Road roots, flavorful teas, and traditional Southern Chinese etiquette. You'll pick and choose a variety of classic dim sum specialties like barbecue pork buns, rice crepes, siu mai, and egg tarts--and become touched by the heart!
