This little hole in the wall was well worth the walk. We have some great food. Highly recommend the pork potstickers and BBQ pork bao. Yummy! When we came in it wasn't busy but by the time we left it was packed.

A must try in San Francisco, food is tasty and price is reasonable. The location is quite difficult to find and its located uphill. Overall this place is great.

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic
streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs
awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on
dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who
gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,
