Hungry?

Dim sum, or a lot of different foods served in small portions, stemmed back to ancient times in Southern China, and was associated with roadside teahouses along the routes taken in the silk trade. A traveler or worker could stop and rest after a long, hard day. Tea was served while only enough food was eaten to quell one's hunger. It was customary for the population to guard themselves against obesity. No such thing as “super-sizing it” applied. The Cantonese culture seemed very wise as opposed to the weight-challenged society from whence I came.
