S.F. Chinatown recommendations?

cortez Mar 15, 2007 07:36 AM

My visiting relative wants to visit Chinatown in S.F. tomorrow. I haven't eaten there in a long, long time.

Any recommendations for a place for lunch?

    Gold Mountain or Lichee Garden for dim sum
    or Hing Lung for roasted duck wonton noodles (it's on my list to try)

      Same question from a couple of weeks ago:

        Z&Y for Dan Dan Noodles

        I've been meaning to try the Cantonese place that's in the basement, on the corner of Jackson and Grant. It's always crowded and looks good. I forget the name, has anyone been?

          That would be the venerable (New) Woey Loy Goey. Gave us a scare a few years back when it closed for a time for remodeling. Since then I've tried to eat there at least once a year, usually at the counter by myself. My father used to eat there for nickel when he was an undergrad at Cal.

          I've found that Kan's on Grant is a good place to take visitors. The food is good and the atmosphere is old-school Chinatown.
