Went to lunch at Queens House on Castro Street today. We ordered the pork & leek water dumplings, dried bean/ tofu noodles (zah-jiang mien), green onion pancake, and the stir-fried dried long beans.

The dumplings were very tasty. Large meat filling that was juicy but not oily. The skin was a bit thicker than I like, but that didn't stop me from eating 6 of them. My favorite dish was the dried-bean noodles. The sauce was served over a huge bowl of thick noodles, but there was plenty of sauce to cover it all. The sauce was more chinese-style (as opposed to the dark black korean style zah-jian mien), just the way I like it. It had minced pork, diced tofu, onions, and even some bamboo. Absolute perfection. The only other place I found comparable was at Shan Dong in Oakland and now I've found a closer place to me. I am thrilled! The fried green onion pancake was mediocre, a bit too oily and not salty enough (A&J still tops my list for that). Same goes for the dried long beans- didn't seem like they cooked it long enough, but it's healthier here.

I saw some people sitting next to us eating the minced pork and soy egg over rice and it smelled delicous. I plan to try that next time.
