I know, I know … camping in a TC means savings – you can cook your own food. But, when in SF, some of the restaurants are cheaper than cooking at “home”. Especially if you’re with a crowd. Remember, as you’ve been warned previously, parking a truck camper in downtown SF – especially in Chinatown, is just not going to happen. Leave the TC in the avenues (out by Golden Gate Park) and take the bus!!
At a hole in the wall on Powell near Broadway is Mee Hong Bakery. Maybe the very best Chinese black bean ribs with rice … $4. They have chicken also, but that’s the whole menu. You have to walk through to the kitchen to order from dad or son … it’s their place and they run it all. Mom’s illness caused her to retire a while back, and son, a local university graduate, came to help.
This is a cash place – not much English – and expect to wait (unless you come early). Every order cooked to order … and the tables may be filled, with a looong line. Just go up front, order up, then come back in 30 minutes.
Today there were 6 of us, and we brought some Roast Pork to supplement. Very foolish – because there’s LOTS of food in every order. When we left, all the tables were full, 10 people were in line. Also, when they run out of food, they’re out!
