I usually ended up eating several baskets of stuff which looked like "dumplings" with pork (or beef), and some bread-like thing with pork (or beef) inside.If they're mostly small dishes w/ a few pieces ala appetizers (traditionally during daily brunch time), they're "dimsum", which essentially means appetizers as that's how we (are supposed to) treat them. It's mainly a Southern Chinese thing, particularly Cantonese. Normally, people also order some main course type entrees (that include a fair amount of carbs... usually noodles) to share after some dimsum.
We never had a "main course" after that. I was usually "full" by then.
I guess I've been eating "dimsum" completely wrong for this whole time.
