It’s impossible to mention great dim sum in San Francisco and not hear about Yank Sing. Founded by Alice Chan in 1958, son Henry started wrapping dumplings at age 9 and moved the business to 49 Stevenson in 1974 where it became an instant financial district favorite. Today, a third generation of… Chan’s continues the family tradition, creating nearly 100 items each day to roll out on the trolleys.
One of the best things about Yank Sing is the vast array of both traditional and modern dim sum known as the “creative collection.” Try Grandma Alice’s famous chicken and mushroom dumpling dotted with garlic, water chestnut, and cilantro. The classic shu mai are the best in townContinued
