Golden Gate Bakery

Yelp: Address:  1029 Grant Ave, San Francisco, CA 94133 Feedback: Prolly the egg tart is the only thing worth buying here but I still haven't tried one since the line is always long in this bakery. Mooncake It is ok and really expensive for 9 dollars for one Nian Gao  (Rice Cake) It's around 3 dollars and tastes like cr*p. Do NOT buy!

Bund Shanghai - China Town, San Francisco

Website: Address: 640 Jackson St, San Francisco, CA 94133 Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Feedback: February 15, 2018 Had my Chinese New Year's Eve dinner here and it wasn't crowded at all so you can easily get a table Read some reviews that they had good dumplings and dimsum.  Tried their soup dumplings, and honestly, the skin was too thick for me and the meat was just ok.  I wouldn't rate it highl. Tried the Pine Nuts Yellow Croaker (whole Fish) interesting as it was kinda crunchy/crispy so I liked it It was with Sweet and source sauce Bokchoy Sprouts with Bean curd The bean curd was cut like some noodles. Food was slightly bland but good. Shanghai Thick Chow Mien This was very "Chinese" for me.. with thick and very filling kind of noodle. Not my thing though but it was good.

Lai Hong Lounge Dimsum @Chinatown San Francisco

Webpage: Address:  1416 Powell St, San Francisco, CA 94133 Food Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Feedback: This is one of the better dimsum places in SF but the queue is really long on Sundays. Costs: around 20 per person for the food below, we ordered around 8 dishes. Costed around 4-5 per dimsum. They also do dinner and less people.  They have limited dimsum selections though but you can always get goood peking duck! Fish slice porridge - just plain and simple but good Siu Mai - Good! Pork Ribs Shrimp and Chives Dumpling - NOT GOOD - Do not order. Was very disappointing Egg Yolk Bun - Quite good and sweet Dinner at March 25, 2017 Tofu with Eggplant in Black Bean Saunce It's Ok! Eggplant was hard to eat so prolly skip this. Yang Chow Fried Rice Salted Fish, Chicken and Eggplant Claypot It was just OK Half Peking Duck Yummmmmmmy!!

Joe's Shanghai NYC

Webpage: Address :  9 Pell Street (China Town) Food Rating: 4 out of 5 Very popular for it's SOUP Dumplings, particularly the crab and pork meat soup dumplings.   Personally, it is just OK.   I still very much prefer Din Tai Fung's soup dumplings.  The other food were just so so. Their famous dumplings! Fried Rice!
