        1. I like Jade Asian in Flushing the best these days.

          In Manhattan, I go to Dim Sum Go Go but the thing is that dim sum on weekends can be super-hellish if you are hungry because of the crowds and the waiting. I will either go on a weekday, show up at like 10:45 to get a table on a weekend or have a snack beforehand (in Flushing I get a couple duck buns from the duck bun window, haha) and then can wait for a table at Jade for 45 minutes and not care. I usually wake up very hungry!

          So go on a weekday if you can, also, then you can choose a better table. I hate getting a crappy table at dim sum.

            Just a heads up re: duck buns first. They seem to be strict about time. Last time, at 10:50am, they would not sell me duck buns. Only 11am sharp and after. Don't know if this is a general policy and always true.
