Chinatown

Restaurants in Chinatown

Dim sum fanatics often gravitate to the Richmond neighborhood, but this Cantonese spot lures them back to Chinatown. Go for cilantro-spiked shrimp dumplings and xiao long bao (soup dumplings).

R & G Lounge in the heart of Chinatown is known for its Cantonese-style food, but its signature dish is the salt and pepper Dungeness crab. Plucked from the tank, the crab is live battered and deep fried, then sprinkled with salt and pepper.

An 880-seat banquet hall installed in the same Chinatown complex as the Asian Cultural Center and Library, Peony prepares Hong Kong-style dishes as well as an elaborate dim sum menu.
