1. Dim Sum

A post shared by Serena Chan (@serenagi) on

Let's get things underway with a yummy Chinese snack. Dim sum is a bite-sized, dumpling-style treat with veg or meat. They first came to prominence in roadside diners that mainly functioned to serve travellers. Now, the dim sum is one of the most popular Chinese dishes - especially as an appetiser to get your meal underway. The meaning of dim sum is "to touch your heart", and you can be sure that's exactly what this dish will do, along with pleasing your stomach.

2. Fried Rice

Ok, so fried rice might not be the most complicated dish, but there's beauty in simplicity. It works perfectly as a companion to other courses, yet you can also enjoy it in its own right - and you'll be left feeling completely full. Fried rice is one of the most popular Chinese dishes, and it looks set to stay that way for quite some time.

3. Wonton Braised Pork Knuckle Noodles

One of the most appealing aspects of Chinese food is its variety. If dim sum isn't your thing, there are plenty of alternatives. Don't fancy rice? Fear not, as noodles will swoop in to save the day. There are a plethora of noodle dishes on the menu, but braised pork knuckle noodles are our pick of the bunch. Enjoy a hint of garlic, a splash of soy sauce and, of course, mouth-watering braised pork that will satisfy even the most demanding stomach.
