Mark-downs at Broadway Dim Sum, SF

On Friday around 5pm when we're strolling up the northside of Broadway, my mom said, "did you notice that woman eating the steamed bao was swinging a plastic bag full of more bao? Did that look like a gai bao? Why do think she has so many?" I replied, "Yeah, I saw that. Maybe someone around here has a discount deal right now."

Then a couple doors up, we noticed some shoppers crowding in the door of Broadway Dim Sum. I sent my mother in to find out the story. A table near the door was piled with baked goods and various dim sum, and the girl standing over it said they were three for a dollar. We tried the no mai chi (coconut covered mochi balls) that were topped with a single peanut. These were filled with chopped peanuts and coconut and had a nice chewy texture. For two bucks, we got seven of them in a styro.

It's been years since I've tried anything here and I don't remember liking the food that much. But these were good, and other things might be worth trying. The baked buns looked good too.

What else do 'hounds recommend here?
