Vegetarians and dim sum?

Pei | | Dec 18, 2008 09:45 AM

I'm just throwing this out as a general discussion: what do you vegetarians out there (or people who often dine out with vegetarians) do about dim sum? Barring finding a restaurant that caters especially to vegetarians, what can I expect if I invite a veg. friend to a typical dim sum restaurant?

Do people have go to dishes, or is it just a type of food best avoided? All I can think of are:

-most dessert items
-ordering chow mein or fried rice off the menu
-bamboo wrapped in tofu skin
-one of the chang fen (rice wrapper) dishes are plain

Almost everything has pork or dried shrimp strewn in it. What to do?
