In Bay Area, there’s none. That’s why i go back to hk twice a year =), in here is basically which cafe’s which dish is more eatable . But even then, a lot of inconsistency, one time you go eat maybe decent but another day taste like POS
ABC - their hainan chicken used to be good(chicken taste if you know what i mean) but not sure what happen since last year, quality went down, still okay but not as good as before, might be due to minimum wage increase they have to cut back.
Smile house cafe in Taraval - Biggest Fraud ever. Menu = more modern Hong Kong style cafe. copied the menu but taste like shxt…
Skyline cafe - the one you mention in ranch 99. food as expected so so. But price is super cheap.
cafe mario in san bruno - cutlet pork , black pepper pork okay, super cheap, very old, but my wife likes these two dish from them.
chinese bbq pork/duck -
sunset irving Lam Hoa Thuan - gwai fei yellow hair chicken taste great. other bbq pork and duck are also okay
cheung hing - overrated POS , especially the millbrae one. even you give me money i would not go there, one time i have jury duty in ssf, went there for a quick lunch, damn these bbq pork fried so hard is like eating a real rock
mr. fong daly city - bbq used to be pretty good. but not sure what happen last couple months, hope they’ll get their stuff back together.
porridge king - bbq stuff not bad, consistent.
Summary: want to eat good any kind of chinese food, go to Hong Kong/ GuangZhou…Man… I can’t wait for my november trip now…
sushi - i recommend amami in san bruno regarding price/quality
there’s other eatable chinese food in millbrae, you guys probably know those… so i won’t make too much comment.
