SURABAYA, Indonesia, Sept. 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Weekends are indeed the right time to gather with family, whilst also exploring culinary delights together. One culinary dish that is suitable to be enjoyed in groups is Dim Sum. Especially in a city where the Chinese culture is quite thick like Surabaya, eating Dim Sum has become tradition and habit for the people, without having to be in any special occasions. Four Points by Sheraton Surabaya, Pakuwon Indah presents two dedicated days to explore many kinds of Dim Sum, which is every Saturday and Sunday. This coincides with Djaman Doeloe Resto & Bar which recently changed its concept to authentic Peranakan, which is a mixture of Indonesian, Malay, Singaporean and Chinese. However, does Dim Sum really come from China?

Looking back onto the history of Dim Sum itself, it was originally a light bite for Hong Kong residents, most of whom are Cantonese. Because of this, the Cantonese are called the Dim Sum makers. Since then, Dim Sum became a favorite snack to many and it spread quickly to the surrounding areas, including China, and finally to the rest of the world today.

In order to provide this authentic experience, Four Points by Sheraton Surabaya, Pakuwon Indah brought a Dim Sum chef from Hong Kong, Chef Ah Djiek, to join the Four Points Culinary Team, presenting a line of Dim Sum with the authentic recipes from his hometown.

There are Hakau, Bai Kut Tausi, Lo Makai, Steam Bean Curd, Custard Pau Bun, Prawn Siomay, Chicken Feet, Black Sesame Pau Bun and many more. Meanwhile, if you like crispier Dim Sum, there is also fried Dim Sum, which consists of Fried Prawn Wonton, Fried Prawn Bean Curd, Ham Sui Kok, Black Onde-onde, Guo Tie and Xo Lobak Ko,” explained Chef Ah Djiek, DimSum Chef of Djaman Doeloe Resto & Bar.
