A Day in the City

We went to the Niners game Friday night (unfortunately, they lost) and spent the night out there so we could spend the next day in the city.  There are so many things to do out there and so many restaurants to eat at… we definitely haven’t capitalized on that since we moved to NorCal.

We went to Yank Sing for lunch.  I was craving good dim sum so we went to the “Rolls Royce” of dim sum restaurants.  It was probably one of the best dim sum restaurants I’ve been to and definitely the most expensive!  I loved the atrium area where we sat… we were close to the intruiging waterfall in the building and had natural lighting.  It was more quiet than sitting inside the restaurant but the carts came very frequently and we got a lot of attention.

We got our usual dim sum choices (shu mai, har gow, sticky rice, etc.) but a wonderful surprise was “Shanghai Dumplings”!  I’ve never seen these at dim sum before and I was so excited to eat them that we got two servings.  These xiao long bao were excellent although Boyfriend kept accidentally poking them with his chopsticks as he was picking them up and he kept losing a lot of his soup.

I would deifnitely love to go here again… the only cons are that it’s far from Sunnyvale and that it’s pricey.  P.S. We parked in the Rincon Center parking garage and it was free with validation!  That is quite unheard of in the city.

    This definitely was the “Rolls Royce” of dim sum. Pricey and flashy, but you get what you pay for. The restaurant was very clean, the carts came by frequently, and above all, everything tasted good. They served jasmine tea which complements dim sum well since it tends to be salty. It’s not the most traditional dim sum place, but some people are perfectly fine with that. Of course once I mentioned “pricey” and “clean” most of you probably already knew this place isn’t your typical traditional dim sum place.
