SF Northern Chinese | Restaurants

source Wikipedia
When we moved to SF, Steven and I thought we could walk into any Chinese restaurant and get amazing food. Sadly, we quickly realized that while there are many Chinese restaurants, most of them range from bad to mediocre. After much trial and error, we have discovered a number of solid hole-in-the-wall places that serve excellent Northern-style Chinese food and even one that we are excited to call our favorite.
