House of Nanking: Great Chinese Food
Locals will forever debate its authenticity, but it's hard to go wrong at this busy and absurdly good eatery.
The dinnertime waiting line outside this tiny, greasy, wildly popular hole in the wall starts at 5:30pm; by 6, there's a 90-minute wait for a table with a plastic menu that lists only half of the best dishes served here. While Nanking's food is outstanding and the prices are some of the most reasonable in the city, the service is slow.
Favorite Dish: Succulent duck dumplings perhaps, or tempura-like sesame-battered Nanking scallops in a spicy garlic sauce--all served hot and fresh on shiny metal platters. The sweet, nutty and slightly hot prawn and green onion pancakes with peanut sauce are dizzyingly delicious, as is the Nanking chicken.
House of Nanking: House of Nanking
Lunch at The House of Nanking, a special recommendation from a special friend was taken seriously! It turned out to be the best chinese food I have yet had. Great food, cheap prices (under $10 a person), rude waiters, and barely enough room to move your arms, what a great combination for a wonderful atmosphere and ambiance, where people of all walks of life were forced into proximity and conversation with one another (Columbus and Kearny, Chinatown, S.F.). I LOVED it.
Favorite Dish: Egg rolls, Nanking mongolian Beef, Sesame Beef with sauce
