What do you call that?
The bowl they bring you to wash your tableware in China. When I ask restaurant staff for another one (to pour more tea out, wash a late arrival's tableware, or whatever), I never know what to call it. If I ask for a "bowl" (碗), I get another food bowl.
I'm talking about the bigger, plastic or glass bowl. This is a very minor question, but it's driving me crazy because I keep forgetting to find out... until I'm at a restaurant again. And then I just have to describe it to them until they figure out what I'm asking for. :-/
