I am #happyasfuck that I found this place. Obscenely well-priced and generally incredible food. Not sure how such a place exists in SF??
Quail landed as a special. Tender, juicy, crispy skinned and super savory. Whew, we knew we were at the right place when we bit into this bad bird.
XLB are savory, soupy, and nicely done. Though I am a total neophyte here. Quite nice.
Taro buns are bomb as fuck. Sweet, savory, simple and awesome.
I had egg yolk buns too that were deliciously saccharine and savory in conjunction, but my photo seems to have disappeared.
BBQ pork steamed buns were very enjoyable with ample pork and soft chewy bun.
Seafood chow fun is really well done, lovely texture on the noodles, and scallops, squid, mussels, and shrimp seem very fresh. Maybe wouldn’t reorder, but conservatives will adore it.
Taro puffs were incredible. So light and fluffy yet crispy, pairing taro and a bit of pork. Whew…absolutely delicious.
Sesame buns really displayed the saccharine side of sesame profoundly, and had a nice subtle crunch to them as well.
Dude, that fucking pork belly is unreal… not sure if I’ve ever had pork belly skin that crispy. WHEW!!!
The duck burrito is actually called that…amazing. It was a little bit of a letdown as it came out somewhat cold and felt like a kind of lesser version of a beef roll or something, but not terrible or anything.
Scallop shumai were amazing though. God damn. Just bursting with the sweet essence of scallop.
Plain shrimp dumplings were lovely. Just perfectly chewy wrappers and savory shrimp, really wonderful.
The gluttinous pillows, again an actual menu item name, are fucking amazing though. Holy shit. So soft, crispy, savory, and seemingly impossibly flavorful… might’ve been my favorite dish outside of the pork belly!
No more traditional egg tarts, but the Portuguese variety are impossibly good. Like mini saccharine quiche, but better than anything I’ve had in France. Fuck…
Get some tea and sake because why the fuck not?
What a meal!
