One bowl with two pieces

One bowl with two pieces , is a slang term that has long been in the vernacular of Hong Kong tea culture. In the past, tea was not offered in a present-day teapot but a bowl in Cantonese restaurants. Dim Sums were not bite-sized. Instead, quite a number of them were simply big buns such that two of them easily filled up one's stomach. The legendary "雞球大包" serves as an excellent example. This saying, however, is now rendered anachronistic under the heavy influence of the "bite-sized trend".
