What to order at Elite Dim Sum

I would like to know what to order tomorrow morning at Elite Dim Sum. Keep in mind that I have been there before. Nothing with shrimp but everything else OK even larger noodle dishes. What do you like the most? I am adventurous...

Yes, I will get there early. Thanks.

    1. Even though Elite is officially an "order off the menu" place, when we were there, we found that the "What's that thing that just went by?!?" feel from the carts model hadn't been lost completely; that periodically waitresses would wander through and offer stuff, much of which seemed to be stuff not specifically on the menu...

      1. I like their dan taht, Macao roast pork, Shark fin dumpling in soup.

        1. Order the Cha siu baau and don't stop. I overdose on them every time I go.

          As far as other stuff goes, everything I've had there is worth ordering so start at the top of the list and go down and then just pick up where you left off at the next visit:)

            mrshankly..."...start at the top of the list and go down..."

            We have actually tried this! The problem is that we have our favorites, and "our favorites" list keeps growing. Two of us can order about 6 items per visit, and we always want our favorites...well, you see the problem. Still, we try to sample one new item each time; almost everything there is delicious!

          2. I'm not allowed to order shark fin anything

            For non-shrimp items, I like:
            pan fried noodle with XO sauce
            Shui Mai (I think their's is the best)
            Chinese sausage clay pot
            Bok Choy with fish sauce
            pork shank
            egg custards
