We were coaxed into the restaurant by a lady outside who promised us good food. The best part of the dim sum were the tasteles frozen dishes. The worst were the soaked in oil onion pancakes. To be avoided for dim sum

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,
