CASH ONLY!!! This dirty hole in the wall dim sum shop is really good. The steamed items are fresh and at least the items we tasted were good. The best item IMO is the salty fish with pork patty over rice. It's a very asian...More

My favorite dim sum place in San Francisco. It’s a dive located in the middle of Chinatown at the corner of Jackson and Pacific. It’s always busy and packed with the local Chinese community. Anytime I go to an ethnic restaurant, I want to be...More

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

gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,
