Grade my restaurant lineup for this coming weekend
Driving up to North Beach from LA late Saturday and heading back late morning on Monday. Our tastes run toward the ethnic and unique. Plan to hit the following restaurants on our 48 hour food bender. Let me know if you'd sub or add anything else in:
Sunday AM Dim Sum:
Ton Kiang or Yank Sing (I know this is hotly contested...both sound touristy but I doubt we'll want to head out to Koi Palace after all that driving)
Burma Superstar for the green tea salad
Swan Oyster Bar
Dotties True Blue
Mama's (on Washington Sq)
Thanks so much for weighing in...
Perhaps you can swap the Swan/Burma thing? Do Swan's for lunch, a bit lighter fare anyway (depending on what you order), and then max out at Burma SS for dinner... I assure you that once you see the menu, you'll want to try everything on it. As far as Monday breakfast goes, I think you can do better than either Dottie's or Mama's, strictly from a "good food" standpoint. But then again, it also depends on where you're staying.
