What happens when you mix delicious Chinese delicacies (点心 dim sum, or dianxin) with sensational Chinese martial arts adventures (武侠 wuxia)? You get the 点心侠(dian xin xia) or Dim Sum Warriors, of course!
The Dim Sum Warriors have defended the Xiaochi Empire for generations and the very mention of their name makes their enemies quiver like silken tofu! But something sinister is brewing in the peaceful kingdom that will soon pit the four Dim Sum Warrior clans – the Fried Kung Academy, the Boiled Kung Temple, the Baked Kung Sisterhood and the School of Steam Kung – against each other.

The fate of the Empire may well rest in the hands of a group of young fighters – but they have so much to learn, and so little time to learn it…
