Was recommended to visit this place for their lobster noodles. Good recommendation! 2-pound Lobster @usd68 plus usd8 for the crispy noodles. We ordered other dishes too but don't bother. They all tasted the same... and they all tasted Super salty!

Stopped here on the way back to our hotel for a late meal and it was good and quick service. A lot of photos of celebrities on the wall that have eaten there. I got the chicken fried rice and it was yummy.

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

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