4. Shumai

Shu Mai, Shao mai, 燒賣 (Chinese) (Chinese-Cantonese)

Shumai is a type of traditional Chinese dumpling, originating from Hohhot. In Cantonese cuisine, it is usually served as a dim sum snack. In addition to accompanying the Chinese diaspora, a variation of shaomai also appears in Japan and various southeast Asian countries.

Shao mai is the Mandarin pronunciation of the pork dumplings. Northern-style shao mai look different and are often filled with sticky rice and mince meat and they are shaped like a vase.
