Misadventures in Dim Sum

I love dim sum. If I could have it every weekend I would. As it is, we go at least twice a month. We try out and explore various dim sum restaurants around the San Francisco Bay Area, as we are so lucky to have options. Our go-to place is still Yank Sing near the Embarcadero in the city. It is top for quality, selection and service and we absolutely love it. However there are still a few … [Read more...]
