After a night meal or dish, Cantonese restaurants usually offer dessert (also call tong sui, or sweet soups). Tong sui are a Cantonese specialty and are rarely found in other regional cuisines of China. Many of the varieties are shared between Cantonese and other Chinese cuisines. Some desserts are more traditional, while others are more recent. Higher-end restaurants usually offer their own blend and customization of desserts.
There is a wide variety of tong sui and in Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Malaysia, there are often stalls which devote themselves just to selling different types of desserts. These dessert stalls have also gained prominence in overseas Chinese communities, and can be found in various parts of Canada, Australia and the United States.
