Cantonese food in San Francisco?

I miss dishes from my childhood near NYC, like wor shu opp.

I'm also looking for wonton soup where the wrapper is tender and folded, filled with a pork or chicken mixture with chopped water chestnuts (no shrimp, please, I'm allergic). Hong Kong Cafe on Church used to serve this before it was replaced by Red Jade.

I hear Superior Palace on Balboa & 37th Ave serves good authentic Cantonese food -- anybody try it?

  1. I think the problem is that what you're looking for is NY Cantonese food rather than "authentic" Cantonese food.

    1. Ruth hit the nail on the head, but you might have some luck, or at the very least educate the rest of us, if you listed some other dishes. Try cruising the Outer Boroughs or Manhattan boards for some of the nostalgic posts for ideas--- "Cantonese" joints are becoming a rarity there too.

      Curious about this same topic a few weeks ago, I found nothing on the menu fitting this description at Shangri-La Vegetarian Restaurant, the only Kosher Chinese place in SF. It was worth a shot...

      Not sure if it's exactly what you're looking for but Almond pressed duck thread:
