Are weekends not made for brunch? Like you, we include brunch as part of relaxing weekend plans with friends. A meal with friends is even better when it involves experiencing traditional cultural foods like Chinese Dim Sum.
The authentic Chinese dishes at Mimimi will undoubtedly catalyze into those few unique food experiences which you’ll think about long after the meal has finished. This is due to the head Chef’s meticulous attention to detail, exquisite flavour profiles and quality ingredients which comprise each dish.
Chef Ning is owner & head chef at Mimimi, an authentic Asian food restaurant located in Saint John. Chef Ning and his wife wanted to open a restaurant where they could introduce pure & authentic Chinese food to Saint Johners. China has a 5,000 year old history and Chef Ning is a master when it comes to preparing food that highlights the cultural & historical origins behind each dish!
For the Dim Sum Brunch at Mimimi, 30 guests experienced a trip to the Guangdong region of China where Dim Sum originated thousands of years ago on the Silk Road. They ate steaming baskets of Dim Sum, drank Chinese beer and fermented Ooling tea and chatted with friends both old and new.
Dim Sum literally means ‘touch your heart’ and with as many as 2,000 menus in the entire range of items, it is a challenge to not find something you love.
So, what exactly is Dim Sum?
Dim sum is a traditional Chinese meal made up of small plates of dumplings and other snack dishes and is usually accompanied by tea. Similar to the way that the Spanish eat tapas, the dishes are often shared among family and friends. Typically dim sum is consumed during brunch hours — late morning to lunchtime.
We can’t wait to gather for the next Dim Sum Brunch on September 29th. If you are eager to attend, tickets may still be available here. In the meanwhile, visit Mimimi to share a meal with close friends and family!
