Show up to this dim sum spot at around 11 when the rest of the market is still waking up, and you’ll catch the staff at Mee Sum pinching shumai dumplings, skewering meat, and folding potsticker dough. Order a medley, and enjoy them as you walk around the rest of the market. Everything is delicious here, but we highly recommend the steamed BBQ pork hum bao.
