Traditional dim sum includes steamed buns, dumplings and rice rolls. Today, the variety has expanded to include roast pork, various types of porridge and soups, and most dim sum eateries will serve these items. Dim sum snacks are usually served in threes or fours, with the steamed snacks like siew mai and har kow in classic steamer baskets, and the sweet baked pastries on plates.
