*Questions: Useful Phrases (Food/Restaurant)

1) Scenario: There is a deli I really like in Chinatown. Everytime I'm there, I buy their 包子. The lady behind the counter will usually give you the cold ones that have been sitting there for a while but she'll give you the hot ones straight out of the steamer, if you ask for them. 
How do you say: "I want a warm one(s)."

2) Scenario: I'm at the same deli and they sell really authentic 北京烤鸭. I'm still getting used to seeing the duck's head and feet so for now, I still ask the gentleman behind the counter to chop off the head and feet.
How do you say: "I don't want the head or the feet."

3) How do you say: (on the phone) "I'm calling to order a carry out (pick-up/takeout)."

4) I often order 糖醋肉 (sweet and sour beef/pork).

How do you say: "I'd like to get the sauce (汁) separately."

5) (after done ordering from the waiter) "and.. that's it."
