Back in the early 1980's I worked on Nob Hill (the building is now the Ritz-Carlton--my old office is the gift shop!) I used to walk down the hill and have lunch in a place on Kearny, probably near California or Sacramento Streets. it was a hole-in-the-wall, just a counter and one row of tables, and I think it was just called "Hunan." I remember some of the stuff they had on the wall: a photo of the members of The Who eating there, and a review from the New Yorker saying that it was the best Chinese restaurant in the world--period.
Has that little place morphed into all the Henry's Hunan locations? And are they still as good as that little dive used to be? I'll be in town again in a few weeks, and I was hoping to have another good sinus-clearing meal there.
