I am an Easterner coming with the family in early August, with teenager, tweener, & youngster.

I'm trying to run from Pier 33 after the early boat to Alcatraz and catch a bite before we join the free SFcityguides for the only walking tour of Chinatown available during my stay.

I was discouraged, by experts here and tripadvisor, from eating at the Wharf so I'm looking for recommendation near the point where the guide is supposed to meet the group.

I think I'm going to MUNI it from the pier, and I see from (nice tool) that we'll be dropped at Pacific and Kearny.

So, you got any suggestions for good, fast, cheap eats or other near Portsmouth Square?

We love Chinese food. We love the soup dumplings at Joe's of Shanghai in NY and the kids can be a tad adventurous.

Other cuisine would be fine too.

Thank you chowhound!
