Dim sum: it's one of the most delicious ways to brunch that exists, but it can be a little intimidating at times, with all of those crazy carts and servers who really don't want to take "no" for an answer. Well, here's how to make it intimidation-free:
Start with buns, rolls, and dumplings -- but don’t order too much, ‘cause this is a marathon, not a sprint. If the restaurant uses carts, you can always order later from the menu or ask them to return (hahaha good luck with that). Maybe order a few noodle dishes, something weird like tripe or chicken feet, and don’t neglect the vegetables (or do -- the food pyramid is probably a scam anyway, right?). Get durian puffs, egg custard tarts, or anything with black sesame paste for dessert. Drink lots of tea.
