I had lunch today at a frequent weekday-lunch spot of my husband's, Kam Lok on Washington off Grant (uphill). It's downstairs, no decor, very friendly staff (a sign outside advertises that small, family-run restaurants have better food), and one of the two dishes was really really good. We ordered a prawn and string beans which came in a well-balanced, well-proportioned, ungloopy garlic sauce. We ate every morsel, the prawns were perfectly cooked, so too the string beans. We also ordered a special wanton dish which while pleasant seemed like it would have been better a couple of hours earlier (we ate after the lunch rush at three; all the staff were eating the family-meal). My husband usually orders the string beans with tofu, which he swears by. The menu is fairly long and varied. Please go and try more dishes and report back!
