Shumai > Wiki


Shumai is a traditional Chinese dumpling served in dim sum.

There are two regional varieties of shumai in China, a Cantonese version and a version from the Jiangnan region, along with many other variations in other countries.

Within the dim sum tradition of southern China, shaomai is one of the most standard dishes. It is generally served alongside har gow, another variety of steamed dumpling.

In food stalls in Indonesia, siomai (or "siomay" in local dialect) are eaten together with steamed vegetables and tofu, and served with spicy peanut sauce.

In Philippine food stalls and fast food restaurants, siomai is eaten as is (albeit with the dip mentioned above) - with toothpicks to facilitate in handling the siomai, or it with rice (which involves using a spoon and fork).
