I stop in here when I want dim sum, as the shrimp har gow is super. This is a small humble place, with a long line for takeout, as well as dine-in, and the line goes fast. Very reasonable prices, and good portions. The Shanghai dumplings are what I call Xiao Long Bao, as they are filled with soup. Very... More

Very busy cafe, mainly doing takeaway as the sit down eating area is restricted. No table service, you order at the counter and if you're lucky, grab a seat when you have collected your order. If there are no spare spots. Tough luck. Customers are expected to remove their plates from the table and dispose of the scraps in the... More

At first we went to the bakery. Afterwards we walked next door. Ordered the dumplings with soup inside and the lunch specials that came with hot sour soup and tea: fish in black bean sauce, prawns with vegetables and vegetable delight. Mixed reviews as we tried each other's entrees. Hefty serving of rice. Companions not too impressed.

We decided to wander the Richmond area to see how it would compare to the more popular San Francisco Chinatown. We happen to enter this storefront as it had good activity and displayed egg tarts. we also sat down and sampled barbecued pork bao, siu mai, ha gow. Portions were good, prices low and the quality in general was quite... More

Definitely go for the egg tarts (buttery crust and soft egg custard) and shrimp dumplings (succulent prawns)! Steamed pork buns are pretty good too. Everything else is out of the mill. Good for snacks.

There are a few dim sum shops on Clement, so I thought it would be fun to do a comparison tasting between some very popular dim sum picks. First up: Har (shrimp) gow (dumpling(s)) Compared to one of their competitor's har gow (shrimp dumplings), their har gow skin was a little more translucent (thinner.) However it's a bit more sticky,... More

This has become one of our favorite stops when visiting this part of San Francisco. The dim sum is tasty and reasonably priced (most are 3 for $2.10). We have yet to try everything but then everything we have tried has been pretty good. In particular, the steaming hot chicken porridge is a real treat on a chilly day.
