3/22/08 Yank Sing , DimSum: It's Still Great, but.....

but you may have to hoc your laptop........
Yes, we both have very healthy appetites. And yes, we do combine breakfast and lunch into dimsum brunch. But still, HOW can it be that we spend $95-$100, BEFORE tip, every year when we eat here? I think I've figured out that it's because the average price, per PIECE, of whatever dish it is, is $1.50-$2.

Our favs are: Shiitake dumplings, Chicken Mushroom dumplings, Shanghai Pork Soup Dumplings, Shrimp Har Gau, Shrimp and Chive Dumplings,Foil wrapped Chicken,
Sticky Rice packet,,Sesame Balls filled with Bean Paste(Lotus Seed).Chilean Sea Bass in thin yam wrapper, deep fried., Chicken and Lotus Patties, Curry Chicken Puffs(flaky turnovers), Fried Shrimp Wontons/Rangoons.

****Note*****the Rincon Center location has the full dimsum selection on weekends but Stevenson Place does not.The last 4 items in my above favs list- are not available at Stev. Place on weekends, unless you order them in advance(they will send them over from Rincon center along with their deliveries of other dim sum that they do not produce at the Stev. Pl.location on wkends.)

For those of you who frequent other dimsum spots, do any of them have alot of the items on my favs list? we tried Ton Kiang a few yrs ago but found Yank Sing's variety and delicious quotient far superior.
