Lunch at Yank Sing, San Francisco, CA

Yank Sing is good, but it's not nearly as good as it is expensive. In fact, it's about 4 times expensive as your standard Chinatown joint. It's good while you're eating it, but afterwards, as you are paying you feel the slightest tinge of regret. This meal, for 3 people, was $110.

Onion Cakes
Tasty and delicate.

These were horrid. Totally inedible. What was in them, we'll never know, but it was incredibly bitter and the texture was very mushy.

Har Gow
The shrimp seemed fresh, and there was not much filler.

Siu Mai
Tasty, as always.

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp
It's for items like these that we keep returning to Yank Sing, despite the expense. These are delicious, especially with the length of sauteed scallion that is also wrapped up in the bacon.

Scallop Dumplings
These tasted of pure scallop, not much filling, and were pretty good.

Spinach and Seafood Dumplings
Tasty, if not entirely memorable.

Stuffed Tofu Skins
Better than the standard greasy version. Light and delicious.

Crab Cake
Way too much filler.

Peking Duck
Juicy meat, crispy skin, what more can you ask for.
