Moved to SF from East Bay - is there a Shan Dong equivalent in SF?

paprikaSF Jul 22, 2006 02:23 AM

Still driving to Oakland's Chinatown for dumplings, handcut noodles, and dry braised green beans at Shan Dong (10th and Webster).

Would love to find something equally satisfying in SF - Clement St? Chinatown?

Pls help!

    Most of the dishes are presented better at the Shan Dong in San Francisco. The menu has a lot more dishes. But there is no knife cut noodles, but the noodles are house made and have a better texture of strandard noodles.

    Under seafood at about 17 dollars is a dish translated at as 2 sheets really worth trying but if have a party of three or four since it is a ;arge serving. Shrimp, scallops, beef shank, ming bean sheets and vegetables.

      San Tung on Irving street blows San Dong in Oakland. The only thing they don't have at San Tung is the big meat or veggie bun or baozi.

        I would have thought someone might have suggested San Tung on Irving in SF by now for the same type of cuisine (though I am not aware of knife cut noodles at San Tung).

          And, here's a current thread on San Tung for some details.
