Their specialty is clay pot, so try the nice selection. I’m not sure how the other dishes are like as we always have a clay pot and a plate of veggies.

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic
streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs
awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on

gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,
