I know that taking out dim sum is problematic, but I have a situation that I hope (and expect) Chowhound expertise will help me with. A friend is having non-serious but very discomforting surgery Friday. I told him I would fix dinner for him and his wife on Saturday, when he will be flat on his back. Or front. Now I learn that they will have visitors from out of town for dinner, a couple from Hong Kong.
I would like to add to my meal plan some quality Cantonese take-out from Chinatown or the Richmond that could serve as a first course for my meal. Are there some dim sum specialites that hold up as take-out? Or other take-out favorites? And what are the recommended places to get such items?
I thank you friends, and I bet my friends will too.
