From the Dim Sum Wiki founder

This wiki was a personal project created because I grew up in New York, knowing the Chinese names for dim sum items and had a hard time finding their "English names" when chatting with friends. Basically, it's a collection of articles "stolen" from Wikipedia, slightly edited so that it only shows what the item is and it's variations. I try to put in my own photos rather than mooch entirely off of them when possible.

The wiki about Dim Sum that anyone can edit. 45 articles since June 2009
