In Hong Kong, the ritual of enjoying dim sum with Chinese tea—otherwise known as yum cha—is a part of this city's cultural identity and is as essential as the dim sum itself. Dim sum usually refers to the small plates of Chinese food including dumplings, buns, fried snacks, cheung fun, chicken feet and everything else in between. To give you some inspiration on where to have dim sum, we asked five Chinese chefs in Hong Kong where they like to go and what to order.

“My favourite place to go for dim sum is Forum Restaurant in Causeway Bay. They have solid skills and blend classic techniques with innovation. My must-order item is Ah Yat steamed premium shrimp dumpling.”
