Cantonese dishes (yue cai)
Best known for crisp vegetables, steamed fish and seafood, as well as meat that is roasted or boiled in clear soup to enhance its natural flavours. Of course, Cantonese cuisine is also famous for its dim sum: bite-sized portions of food served in steamer baskets or from small plates.
