6. House of Banquet

939 Clement (at 11th Ave.)

Ignore the huge, empty room downstairs with a giant cabbage god facing the entrance; the party's on the second floor. This is a rolling-cart place, so language skills aren't necessary, which is good because if you don't speak Chinese you'll be in the minority. The siu mai and green tea dumplings are the must-order items here; we also like the light and airy baked pork buns. And the price is quite low; it's possible for a group of four or more to eat well for under $10 a person.

5. Golden Gate Dim Sum Seafood Restaurant

1829 Clement (at 19th Ave.)

SFoodie likes to order weird-sounding dishes off dim sum menus, and it has never paid off for us more than here. "Crude Drugs Chicken Feet" is one of the best dim sum dishes in the city -- the feet absorb medicinal herbs and end up tasting like solidified chicken soup. We also love the cold herbal jelly. If you're not as adventurous, get the chicken bun, the house steamed shrimp dumpling, and the sticky rice with lotus leaf.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
