Revered as an established dim sum den in the Bay Area, two tiny words (Yank Sing) are bound to rouse any San Franciscan for these sumptuous treats. Delivering on food quality and a pleasant aura, Yank Sing's Shanghai soup dumplings stuffed with moist ground pork and a burst of broth are near mythical. On weekends, masses tend to mob this airy urban space, so come prepared to wait... and wait. Carts manned by frenetic servers and loaded with steamed and fried eats tease your taste buds, but are a thrilling diversion. Char siu bao (fluffy barbecue pork buns) are smoke and tender; ha gau (shrimp dumplings) are a standout; and chicken feet are a lovely addiction. Over-ordering can be a hazard, but with to-go boxes on the ready, savor your leftovers later.
