Sunday late afternoon, end of spring break & Andrew's headed back to UCD. Since I worked the whole weekend, I didn't feel like cooking so we decided to go out & Andrew found this cute little "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant in South San Francisco to try. Even though the menu was small & limited, everything we ordered was GOOD! There was also plenty of action while we were there...lot's of take-out orders & people coming & going.
|216 Cypress Ave.|
|Spicy Beef Tendon|
(Thinly sliced, spicy & very aromatic...I loved it!)
|Five Spiced Marinated Beef|
(This is served cold & also very good)
|Garlic String Beans|
|Shrimp Dumplings with Green Chives|
(Freshly made...we watched them make it at the next table!)
|Shanghai Soup Dumpling|
(This tasted just like the ones we ate when we were in Shanghai!)
|Ma Po Tofu Noodle|
(The noodles are also house-made & it was GOOD!)
We decided Dumpling Empire is now our new hang-out...the prices are good & you get plenty to eat.
Hope to see you there!
Yours truly, Karen
