The menu covers the most characteristic 69 dim sums in Guangzhou, including savory porridges, sausages, steamed dumplings, and vermicelli rolls, according to today's Southern Metropolis Daily.

Winners will not only have the honor to name the dim sums but will win up to 600 yuan (US$87) for their contribution.
