Dim Sum on Clement?
Live in the far north of Ca. and frequently drive home through SF on Hwy. 280 and via Park Presidio to Golden Gate Bridge. Have frequented Gourmet Dim Sum (Clement) in the past, probably not the greatest, but has been adequate. The usual drill is to pick up enough Dim Sum to feed our cravings for several days and then take back to Humboldt Co. where we have no provider of Dim Sum. Ownership or chef at Gourmet Dim Sum has apparently changed recently and quality is not as good. Need suggestions of good places on Clement, Geary really close to Park Presidio for a quick off and back on the the long path home.
For a quicker on and off on your route, try the other "Chinatown" on Irving Street. TC Pastry is our go-to place for take-out dim sum. Across the street is Happy Bakery (not to be confused with the roast duck place on Ocean Ave), which is under the same management as Wing Lee on Clement (if you've been a fan of its dim sum), to fill in. And if you time it right to show up a few minutes before 6pm to get in line, you can get things at discount (3/$1).
