Asking for hot dim sum.

jmax | Jan 29, 2008 04:48 AM

On the steam carts - sometimes they take the top container which is open to the air and lukewarm - Sometimes they lift the top one off and take the one underneath which is always hot. I prefer when the ladies take the containers from the lower parts of the steam carts. How can I say this or motion to the ladies that don't speak English so they understand what I am asking for. I am usually in Flushing or NYC Chinatown if that makes a difference.
