Dim Sum Trolleys
In the late 1960s, Hong Kong restaurants began serving dim sum with the trolleys used in Western fine-dining, because servers found traditional trays and platters too heavy to handle. The trolleys were later fitted with heating elements to keep food warm. But thanks to the space trolleys take up, they’re now a dying breed, disappearing in favor of the often baffling dim sum order sheet.
