I'm a little surprised that no one has mentioned dim sum in this context.

After all, that's basically how a dim sum restaurant works; the hostess seats you and a pot of tea appears on the table. Then a series of (typically) young ladies with small pushcarts come by at leisurely intervals. Each cart has a few items, and you select what you want. As the young ladies' English is about equal to my Mandarin (i.e. none to speak of), you may not know what you are getting, but it is almost always tasty.

There is a progression of courses that cycle every hour or two, but hitting "TDC" on the cycle is a matter of chance.
