    Check out Fook Yuen on El Camino. Good dim sum and other stuff.

      Note that Fook Yuen is in Millbrae, south of San Bruno.

      San Bruno has quite a few good choices. Thai Nakorn, Innya Lake (Burmese), and especially the Sunday lunch at the Thai Temple.

        Is this every Sunday? How are the prices?

          You might want to try HON LIN Restaurant, Szechuan & Mandarin Dishes, Banquet Facilities Available, Lots of Parking at the Back, open 7 days week. Very good food & service & always lots of people. Their address is # 500 San Mateo Ave. San Bruno, Tel # (650) 872-2288. We have always been happy campers when we leave the place.

            Hon Lin has pretty good food. I have been there about twenty times. More than half the time the service has been surly... as if they resent you being there but will begrudgingly take your order. And no, we were not being offensive in any way and were just there because we really appreciate their cooking.

            You're best to call the temple for the date you want to go. It's an ongoing thing, but I don't know if there's a seasonal closing or variation for feast days. Prices, in general, were less than would be paid in a restaurant, but varied. The linked thread lists prices for several of the dishes illustrated.

      2. For a hearty meal, try the Basque Cultural Center in South SF (on Railroad Ave., I think), They serve lunch and dinner there.

          What about Hiro Sushi on San Bruno Ave.? It's a fav of the Marketing dept. staff at the Sanrio Corporate office in S. SF. (I worked there last summer.)
