chinatown + bloglovin'

chinatown
chinatown

Quick shots from a trip to Chinatown in SF last week with the Nasty Gal crew. We were on the run so we settled for dim sum to-go which actually wasn't half bad. I'd write more but again, I'm pressed for time and will have to rely on these photos to catch your eyes...

I think I've been to that exact dim sum place in SF. Was there last summer, loved those first dumplings with red meat inside.

The Chinatown in NY/Philly is the best :] but I have to say San Francisco is my favorite place in the whole world.

even though hong kong style bread is full of fatty goodness, i still think you should go to golden gate bakery. it's between pacific and jackson on grant ave. get the pineapple bun (melon pan), the coconut cookie thingies, the cream bun, the egg tart, the cocktail bun. im not joking. it's hella good.
