American Dim Sum

I’m a fan of dim sum. Dim sum is like Chinese brunch with a twist. There aren’t any large portions, it’s typically bite-sized pieces of food. If you’re at a sit-down dim sum place you don’t order off a menu. Instead the servers walk around with trays of different dishes and you grab whatever looks good. It’s a great dining experience and it makes me wonder if anyone has come up with American dim sum. It would be small portions of American comfort foods. I’m talking about sliders, meatballs with toothpicks, fries, onion rings, mozzarella sticks, milkshake shots, potato skins, street tacos, mini corn dogs/pigs in a blanket, deep fried pickles, deep fried Twinkies, cheesecake bites, ice cream cupcakes, Buffalo wings, chicken nuggets… Do I need to keep listing food or can you just admit that American dim sum is a great idea? Anything that catches your eye ends up on your plate.

Corn Dogs

Corn dogs are my personal favorite deep-fried food on a stick. I think that a lot of people are with me on this one. Hot dogs are good, cornbread is good, combine the two and shove a stick in it, add some mustard and you are good to go. Some people don’t like corn dogs. Some people had a shitty childhood. Corn dogs remind me of carnivals and fairs and summertime. Comfort food is good. Comfort food on a stick is even better.
