as i was sitting at my desk, a slow hankering started to come over me--a hankering for dim sum. alas, i have a ton of work to do, so i could not go to a sit down place and alleviate my hunger. so the question is this: what are the good take out dim sum places in sf chinatown, preferrably close to financial district (not too far up the hill)? and while we're on it, what about in the city in general (especially around 9th and irving)? i searched over the past threads, and i did not find a comprehensive thread, so i thought this might be fun.
however, while searching through the old posts, i did find one of my favorites from a while back--cheap eats in chinatown. this one deserves a little attention, and maybe people want to chime in for updates.
