San Francisco friends---dim sum?

Posted by fairegold (My Page) on

Many many many years ago, when we lived in the city, we used to have dim sum at the Hang Ah Tearoom. I went back about 2 years ago, and it was disappointing. We'll be in the city for a couple of days soon, but are not getting the car out of the hotel garage, so we will be mainly on foot. Does anyone have a more current recommendation for dim sum near Chinatown or downtown?

fairegold,

I just had great dim sum yesterday. I don't remember the name of the restaurant, but it is on the southwest corner of Folsom and Hawthorne. Hawthorne is between 2nd and 3rd Streets. It's a good location if you go to MOMA or Yerba Buena. Hopefully someone will give you an option north of Market if you want to stay in that area.

Have a great stay in the City!

That's possible. We'll be at the Hyatt Regency for a company event, and we're taking a little extra time for ourselves. Thanks very much.

Darn, I thought you were inviting everyone for dim sum. :)

The Richmond is a good neighborhood for dim sum and all kinds of Asian food, but you'd have to get there. We get dim sum from one of several take-out places on Clement St., just look in the windows and stop in when you see something good.

If you ever find yourself in the East Bay, there's a great sit-down dim sum restaurant right inside the entrance to the mall at Pacific Plaza, Central Ave. exit off the 80 in El Cerrito.

I asked my friends in the Sunset and they go to Tong King on Geary between 22nd and 23rd, or a block away - Yet Wah at Clement and 23rd. They don't go downtown much but mentioned that Harbor Village in the Embarcadero was good (if it's still there)).

I hope this isn't too late, but I suggest Yank Sing. There are 2 locations - one in the Rincon Annex (only a couple of blocks from the Hyatt Regency) and the other is only a few blocks west of there on Stevenson [between Market & Mission] between 1st and 2nd Streets. It's a family-owned and operated place that is a little upscale and utterly delicious. It's always on my list when I go back to visit SF, where I lived for 22 years...

Fairegold - another vote for Yank Sing - elegant and delicious! It's pricey, but really good.

I think that we'll try Yank Sing, great reports from people I know. Thanks to you all!

I ate at Yet Wah with my grandparents many years ago. Delicious food. I grew up around Clement Street. Lots of Chinese restaurant choices there as well. I do miss San Francisco.
