Bay Area Chinese food is the best in the U.S. The Best. Say what you want, San Gabriel/Monterey Park — the Bay Area’s got you on this one. Plus, driving in San Gabriel makes me want to hit someone with my car. Over and over and over again. I digress…. Day 1 of my Bay Area Chinese food odyssey begins.
Shanghainese Xiao Long Bao (Shanghai Dim Sum menu). Order of 8, $5.95.
Shredded chicken and cucumber with mung bean ‘pasta’ (appetizer). $4.95.
Out the door for less than $15. Shoveling all this food down by myself…priceless.
