San Francisco's Chinatown Hotspot

Cantonese Style Dungeness Crab

Salt and Pepper Roast Prawns

Classic Peking Duck

A very crowded table full of tasty foods

When visiting a restaurant in San Francisco's Chinatown, most locals will know how to stay clear of the many non-authentic tourist style restaurants. But those in the know can agree on one restaurant that is good and has been around for many years, Yuet Lee Seafood restaurant on Stockton Street which serves Chinese and Cantonese foods. Maybe you have even seen it on some of those cable TV food shows? This brightly lit hole-in-the-wall does not look like much on the inside but they do a really great job with the food.  It's so good that you will find local chefs hanging out and eating there after they finish working in their kitchens. Staying open 'till 3 am on weekends is also a plus with the night club crowd . Be sure to try the salt and pepper squid and the Dungeness crab that they will present to you for inspection before cooking. As for non-seafood dishes, be sure to try the Pork Chow Fun noodles which were amazing!
