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

    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,

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