Hing Lung in SF

Tried this place before the NYE fireworks last night since Yuet Lee was rather full.

Pros:
-Flank steak chinese style: the beef is somewhat tender although my wife thinks it is tougher that what she likes- fine for me. The sauce is slightly sweet but not overly sweet and not too goopy for me. Quite nice.
-Peking spareribs were fried to a crunch. The sauce is a bit too sweet. OK
-Wonton soup had whole shrimp but did not taste as good as Gold Medal in Chinatown. The broth also just ok but acceptable.
-Scallops with vegs had nice plump scallops that are quite fresh and the vegs had good snaps. Sauce is thickened broth that was just ok.
-Chinese donut/bread was excellent. Size was too big IMO. I like the cross section to be small.

Cons:
-Congee with chicken and abalone: lots of chicken pieces and fewer abalones. The jook did not have as much flavor as I like. Maybe not enough broth when cooking it. Far short of my expectation. Hardly touched by the four of us which is a real bad sign.
-The floor and general cleanliness can be improved. Some of the water glasses were not clean though so I just drank from the tea cups. But the plates, etc are spotless.
-Service can be improved since I had to ask for water at least twice and other requests as well. Common problem in these type of places.
-Total tab $46 with tips. A bit higher than my value expectation for this kind of place.

It is located in Broadway and Stockton.
