One of Kathy's brothers urged us to try it. Thanks, Tom! It made for an excellent Dim Sum lunch.
This branch is located in the Rincon Center, a magnificently restored old post office building from the late 30s.
Lots of accolades in the window...
The team meets for a pep talk before opening.
We're in and scanning the menu.
No duck feet or pork belly on the menu, but a lot to choose from...
The Xaio Long Bao was good...
This shrimp dish was a work of art.
Their version of lettuce wrap is elegant.
We're happy to have finished with sesame balls, a quasi-dessert but not too sweet.
A delicious way to wrap up our four-day weekend in San Francisco.

It was a dark and stormy night (well, rainy) and we researched the neighborhood around the Intercontinental, settling on Tin, a well reviewed Vietnamese eatery in the next block.
We started with Cha Gia rolls and papaya salad. You wrap the rolls in the lettuce, adding the mint leaves, cilantro and sauce.
Our main course included lemongrass chili chicken with vermicelli, "shaken" beef with rice, and a side of baby bok choy.
This place is a winner.

The pass we bought included entry. It's a great hands-on science center kind of place and as busy as you'd expect on a very rainy Saturday.
We took a quick walk through and then headed back to our hotel on Streetcar F.
Quite a drinking fountain to attract young people...
