Dim sum to-go in SF Chinatown

reesie | Mar 4, 2010 01:13 PM

What are your favourite places in SF Chinatown for dim sum to-go? I am thinking they would be mostly bakeries or maybe regular restaurants that also pack up take-away containers. I am looking specifically for places that serve the white steamed rice cake (a bit sour) aka Bak Tong Goh 白糖糕, but any other recommendations would be great too! I never know where to eat in SF Chinatown, and I inevitably wander into North Beach for food.

As a separate question, in the SF boards, does the term "dim sum" automatically imply that it's Hong Kong style food? I ask because I have been to Taiwanese dim sum places that serve foods that are not quite the same as the Hong Kong dim sum that I am used to.
