Early Morning Take Out Dim Sum

I need to pick up around $100-$150 worth of dim sum in Chinatown next Sunday morning at around 9am for a group breakfast. Do any of you Chowhounders know of a place where I could do this? I'm thinking a bakery that sells dim sum would probably work pretty well for this.

  1. Lucky King Bakery on Grand St (between Forsyth and Eldridge Streets) sells dim sum at the back counters. They have a good variety though I'm not sure if they have a lot that early. Some of the larger dim sum restaurants (like the ones on Mott Street between Canal and Hester) also have a to go counter so you can try them as well.

      Love this place- I'm not sure the right name but they have these little green tea fried mochi with a black sesame filling that are cravable- haven't seen at any other bakery, they sell 3 on a plate for $2.

    2. I would field a call to Harmony Palace....I believe they open at 9am and you could probably pre0order in advance.

      1. Try Dim Sum Go Go as well - for large orders they can just send you the dim sum by car service (which runs around $20)

              Ouch: that's early afternoon to me. :-)

        2. Hop Shing will definitely have a large selection of dim sum available for takeout at 9am on a Sunday.

            I second Hop Shing, they are known for their takeout dim sum.

            OOOPS, the OP already went to Lucky King. I've never tried Lucky King

          2. Thanks all! I ended up at Lucky King Bakery, and they had plenty of dim sum for takeout at ~8:30am when I showed up. They were quite happy to accommodate my large order and the prices were quite fair. I didn't have the chance to sample any of the food myself, but the group of people I brought it for seemed happy to devour it.

              Glad it worked out for you! When you return seriously try the funny green balls i mentioned before. Their rice noodle dim sum is a good one too.
