I imagine SF has wonderful dim sum places. I don't go frequently, but little sis just started school up there so I am planning visits. Can the locals recommend a great dim sum place, good variety, fresh, not too challenging to communicate w/ servers re "what's in that dumpling?", maybe $3-4 per plate, and won't leave us with that heavy feeling in the stomach an hour later. Bonus points for places that do not use a lot of peanuts or peanut oil. My shui mai loving little guy is allergic.
If you have a favorite place, please post the address, your favorite dishes, and a good time to arrive.
