  1. I haven't had any to-go dim sum in SF yet, so I don't have any specific advice. But I wanted to ask about the dates (or what appear to be dates) on your list....for example, does the 6/90 next to Happy Family Rest. mean that you last ate there in 1990?

      Rohan Lounge occupies that address now.

        Yes, Dates sort of, the last time In put it up in the computer.
        Happy Family is however gone.

        Thanks all.

      2. Sadly, H&N shut down earlier this year and has been replaced by a pho place. Though it had a smaller selection, I felt the general quality of the food was better than Mong Kok's.

        Hong Kong Seafood is now S&T and has gone through several ownership changes (though the signage may not reflect that). Have not eaten dim sum there in ages nor have I purchased anything from their take-out counter.

        TC Pastry is alive and well. A newer take out dim sum joint has opened up across the street from it - Happy Bakery I believe. I like their big chicken buns (steamed w/chicken, egg, shittake mushroom, and sausage). I think it's related to the place on the corner of 6th and Clement. I generally prefer TC Pastry for their dumplings but it wouldn't be a bad idea to pop into Happy Bakery to check out their selection.

        Happy Bakery
        2253 Irving St
        San Francisco, CA 94122
        (415) 661-1386

        1. You can add:

          Red House Bakery
          2818 San Bruno Ave
          San Francisco, CA 94134

          1. As mentioned, Hong Kong Seafood is now S & T. I've had a chance to eat in and take out and have been generally pleased. It's our go-to stop and grab place when we're heading north on Sunset Blvd. going toward the GG Bridge and points north.

                Is New Wing Sing still open? I drove by there recently and the windows were covered in brown paper.

                  Its reopened with a new name, but with the same people and same food...but clean.
