Guangzhou, a city of Cantonese cuisine and dim sum, attracts vast crowds of tourists every year. Some of them come to Guangzhou time after time for only one reason - the gloriously tasty food.

If they follow locals into the teahouses, which are filled with people partaking in yum cha every morning, the visitors can't go wrong.

Yum cha, literally translated as "drink tea", is the hugely popular Cantonese tradition of brunch involving Chinese tea and dim sum.

Sipping tea and eating dim sum is the main theme of the teahouses. Among the many dim sums, hargow, which is Cantonese for shrimp dumplings, is the food that touches from tongue to heart.
