Sam Wo closing.


Does anyone lament the passing of this place? (I've never been there.)

"S.F. Chinatown home of 'rudest waiter' is closing" — Paolo Lucchesi

""That's why we go! We go here for the dirty kitchen and the bad service, because the food is delicious and we can get it at 3 a.m. in this sleepy town," said Wendy Jones, a San Francisco resident who has been dining regularly at Sam Wo for 15 years."

    1. I have lived in SF for ages, and have been to Chinatown forever. Is Sam Wo really that good?
