DETAILS

Yank Sing — meaning "city of the ram," in reference to Canton, the capital of the Chinese Guangdong province famous for dim sum — was one of only a few area dim sum restaurants when Alice Chan opened the eatery in 1958. Now run by a third generation of the Chan family, the restaurant shines even among many, thanks to its nearly 100 varieties of Chinese small plates served daily. The downtown and SoMa locations bustle with heavy lunchtime crowds, as banking professionals down plates of pork dumplings, curried shrimp- and cheese-stuffed won tons and deep-fried crab claws.

 

 

Beer, wine and sake available. Serving lunch daily.

James Beard Foundation: America's Classics award, 2009


"One of San Francisco's best dim sum houses offers dozens of little dishes, which include (in addition to the traditional dumplings) salads, Peking duck and stir-fries, all brought to your table on rolling carts."
