    don't go for the food, go to the bar

    we were looking for a place where the locals go and asked a cable car operator who was beginning to give us the typical tourist-type reccomendation until we said we wanted to know where the locals went and he told us to go there and ask for Uncle Chuck at

    Don't bother them!

    Waiters are extremely disturbed if you try such outlandish behaviour as ordering food or asking for drinks. When the food arrives, it may or may not be what you ordered, but, again, don't dare disturb the staff with such trivialities. It was once good abo

    Avoid this tourist trap at all costs

    I had a bad feeling when my companions wanted to go to Cathay House. Here's two tips on finding good food in Chinatown: 1 - don't go somewhere where there are no Chinese patrons. 2 - Avoid places on the main tourist drag of Grant street, especially those

    Best Chinese in SF

    Everytime I visit SF, I must go to this restaurant. Superb Chinese food in an authentic atmosphere. Right in the heart of Chinatown, you will never think of Chinese the same.
