We are heading to SF in 2 weeks and I'm trying to do my homework and give so much thanks to fellow hounders who keep putting up with my endless questions...special thanks to wolfe...We have secured reservations to Canteen...decided that mexican would be better in the Mission for lunch and I'm still trying to investigate Peruvian a little more...but I keep going in circles regarding Dim Sum.
This is what I can assess -
Yank Sing - super pricey and not worth it unless it's on an expense account (and we don't have one)...also I can't justify spending over $5 for shu mai.
Koi Palace - huge selection, great dim sum, terribly long wait especially if you aren't Chinese and we aren't...and horrible rude service.
City View and Ton Kiang - seem to get mentioned but not much variety.
Is there anything with the variety of Yank Sing or Koi Palace without the unwanted negatives? We have a car and are willing to travel if necessary. Also I'm looking to either go on Thursday or Saturday morning
