Dimsum Steamed Rice
Posted on Monday, 11 September 2017
Dimsum Steamed Rice is one of the most popular dish of Harbour City Dimsum. It is a fried rice topped with shrimp and pork or chicken, and steamed in a rice cooker with its secret sauce. This was an original creation of Mr. Henry Uytengsu of Ding Qua Qua Dimsum House in Cebu, which pionereed the all-day dimsum dining in 1969. Wanting to recreate this dish at home, I found a few recipes online and tweak my version.
