This last week we had business in San Francisco and we were able to have lunch at San Dong on Irving.
We started the meal with Shrimp and Chives dumplings. The dumpling were fresh and tasted made in house. The only draw back was the skin was too thin to be handed rolled. I will like to try the other dumpling next time.
We then order was the Garlic Fried Chicken. We got half a chicken that was deep fried with a thick spicy sauce. This is was very good. The sauce was thick enough that it did not effect the cprisy chicken by softening it.
Then my wife saw a noodle dish that we have not had in a long while. So we order Dan Dan Noodle (no Melaine it not what I remembered) which was something I have never had. The noodles were served with a peanut and sesame sauce, but with seafood on top. Very interesting. I must be old, because I have not had Dan Dan noodle like I remember them. The claim was the noodles were "homemade", they were very good and held up well even when taken home.
We were served Chinese Kim Chee and the menu was in English, Chinese and Korean. I say that it was Chinese Kim Chee because I have been told that Chinese is a little sweeter than Korean because we add sugar.
All in all a good meal. I will be back with more people to try more items.
