Dumping Kitchen @Inner Sunset, San Francisco

Rating: 4 out of 5 star Yelp Review here . Address: 1935 Taraval St, San Francisco, CA 94116 Feedback: Restaurant seems nicer than Kingdom of Dumpling Cucumber Salad was refreshing and yummy. Though I prefer Kingdom of Dumpling's version. Food was huge - ordered a braised Lunch meal and it was in a huge plate. Couldbbe easily be good for two people. It was the usual American size. Braised string beans was also really good, yummy, and crunchy but preferred the Din Tai Fung version. Pirk steamed dunplings was good but the skin was easy to tear and the meat seems to be not sticky enough that it just crumbles. Still good though. Pork Steamed Dumpling Braised String Beans with Fried Rice (more like Egg Fried Rice) Cucumber Salad I'm lovvvvving Cucumber Salad! and the bill

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!

Hongkon East Ocean Seafood Restaurant at Emeryville

Webpage: Address: 3199 Powell St, Emeryville, CA 94608 This restaurant is along the waterside and thus, has  a great view of San Francisco Bay.   Dimsum is generally good and affordable, we paid around 70 bucks for order of around 10 dimsum and we were very full afterwards. Kai lan with XO sauce - it's OK.  Rice in the Lotus leaf - tasted authentic to me Pork Ribs - the usual  Taro and Shrimp Cake - I can't really taste the shrimp in this one.... meh! Chicken's feet - quite good but tad spicy for me. We ordered additional Dimsum Sesame Seed Balls - quite good.   I like it as it is not too sweet. Soup Dumplings (Xiao Long Pao) - it is OK but not good.  I think I just got so used to Din Tai Fung. Shrimp Dumpling - It's OK.   Nothing great about it. Porridge with Century Egg and Pork - the usual porridge.  Nothing fantastic about it.
