Canton is not all about Cantonese style dim sum as they offer Cantonese cuisine as well. Canton is a city in China (now more known as Guangzhou) is a food haven. There is a saying you have the best food in Guangzhou. In Canton, the main dialect is Cantonese and it widely used in Hong Kong and Macau.

Shanghai Dumplings – “Xiao Long Bao” might not come from Canton but they are sure good.

The best way to eat xiao long bao is to compliment with vinegar and ginger.
