Dim Sum (budget) – Wing Lee Bakery – 503 Clement Street near 6th Closed on Tuesdays
Chinese (best Wor Won Ton soup) – New Woey Loy Goey Restaurant – 699 Jackson St, just down hill from Grant Street on the right hand side, the first restaurant that you have to go down stairs to enter on the right hand side of the street.
