Here’s a short post of a great restaurant in downtown San Francisco. I’ve been to plenty of dim sum places before; this is my favorite of the bunch by far. For those who aren’t familiar with these types of restaurants, you order small dishes at a time from carts rolled around by servers.
This is the star of the place: Shanghai dumplings. These delicate dumplings are filled with pork and a soup broth. You place the dumpling on a soup spoon, add the red ginger sauce, drink the soup within, and then eat it! Delicious!
Along with the Shanghai dumplings, my sister and I had seasoned string beans, chicken feet, har gow (shrimp dumplings), and shrimp rice noodle rolls.
Overall, Yank Sing had excellent food and service. I can’t wait to come back again!

I’m here in San Francisco vacationing for a week before I start my internship at Silicon Valley. My first full day here and I ran, walked, and hiked a total of 10 miles in the city. All was worth it, especially this view from the top of Corona Heights!
View of Market St. and the rest of the city from Twin Peaks at night.
After our failed attempt to see the view of the city (described here), the fog cleared out the last night I was in SF. I literally jumped out of the car with my camera and tripod when I saw the view when we stopped at the top. My family came out to see the view too, but after a few minutes they we back in the car. I was still out in the cold taking shots :P I was waiting for the perfect moment where some cars were driving down the road.
This literally was the best way to end my trip :) Hopefully I will be returning soon.
