Quick, Cheap Dinner, Legion of Honor area?

Going to the Pocket Opera tomorrow night at the Legion of Honor. Need to get a quick cheap dinner before the show. Any suggestions?

  1. La Vie on Geary or PPQ Dungeness Island on Clement & 25th. Lots of other cheap options nearby.

    1. Shanghai Dumpling King on Balboa around 34th is a well-priced
      option. Should be easy to google for lots of comments/info, but
      here are a couple of thoughts:

      1. The XLB is not of quite as high a standard as Yank Sing,
      but perfectly decent for a more homey version.

      2. I personally like the dumplings in the hot oil.

      3. It is a little small, so maybe not an option for a large

      4. It's out in the sticks and I dont know what this
      implies for primetime walkin-ability on a Friday nite.

      ok tnx,
