When "thesauce" said there was a great Chinese-Korean I was delighted --- I miss San Wang and San Tung in SF.
Sadly, I was dining alone so only ordered one dish, the jiao zi (water dumplings). I think a thicker wrapper is just the style here. It was really tasty, and the balance of meat to green onions was good, more meat than onions.
At $5.55 for 12 dumplings, it was very reasonable, in fact this place easily qualifies as a real hole in the wall cheap eats find.
There was a big table of post-golf Korean buddies, another large table of local college students and a steady stream of "regulars". Little wonder, if I lived closer I'd be eating here once a week.
The downside - one of those places where you don 't want to look too closely at the kitchen. Unappealing bathrooms, wait until you get home. The waitresses are old school brusque and are almost running from kitchen to table to table. All in all, a San Francisco Chinatown like experience. But for $6-7 a meal for food this delicious, that is fine with me.
