Fodor's Review

Many of the best chefs in Beijing's imperial kitchens hailed from China's northeastern province of Shandong. San Franciscans, with or without imperial ancestry, regularly enjoy dishes of the same province at this bare-bones storefront restaurant. Specialties include steamed dumplings—shrimp and leek dumplings are the most popular—and hand-pulled noodles, in soup or stir-fried. Among the typical accompaniments are a salad of jellyfish, seaweed, or sliced cucumbers and

a plate of cold, poached chicken marinated in Shaoxing wine. Parents and kids regularly fight over platters of dry-fried chicken wings, a cult dish in the city. To get a table without a wait, come before or after the noon or dinner rush (parties of five or more should call before 5 pm for a reservation).

The first thing you notice when you walk in is the smell of garlic and kim chee in the air. Can be a little noisy. No reservations taken, first come first serve. Be sure to sign in at the door during peak times.
