I finally got to check out Yung Kee in Chinatown today (thanks to Melanie's recommendation back in August) for some fresh rice noodles....sadly I made the mistake of only buying two sheets. I definitely should have bought 3 or 4 or 5. They were very fresh and very cheap (I can't remember now how much they were, but I think I spent under 1 dollar in the store and bought two sheets of rice noodles and a bean filled donut.)
Two sheets of rice noodles plus fried tofu, snow peas, shitake mushrooms and black beans was enough for some great homemade chow fun tonight. Just not enough to have much leftover for lunch tomorrow :(
I also tried two shrimp/chive dumplings from the place directly across the street (Dim Sum House? or House of Dim Sum?). They were OK.
Today was my first daytime experience in SF Chinatown, and I enjoyed it quite a lot. I definitely want to continue exploring.
