It is a food chain in the heart of the Philippines, Cebu, where traditional Chinese dim-sum has been pioneered into a modern and more appealing dim-sum. Traditional Chinese dim-sum offered only sticky brown fried rice to customers in addition to actual servings of pork, chicken, beef, or any other type of meat. This type of dim-sum appeals to elder Chinese men, affectionately called "jer-jer," who yearn to bring back the backward age of eating dog-meat and cats and believe that this reinvention of traditional dim-sum is an affront to their traditional way of "see-fut" dishes. Filipinos have found this practice to be as revolting as eating turtles and so reinvented dim-sum into it's current popularity. A popular dish is the Steamed Pork Dim-Sum where a bowl of pork fried rice sits at the bottom of the bowl while a serving of pork sauteed with delicious Ding-Qua-Qua's special sauce sits on top. The pork is then mixed by the customer with the fried rice and is then ready for consumption. This is a very famous place in Cebu and is universally known throughout the island as the best dim-sum around.
Ding-Qua-Qua is to dim-sum as a computer is to an abacus.
