R&G Lounge

When in San Francisco, a visit to Chinatown is a must even on limited time.  Tired from all the walking we did at the Fancy Food Show, my brothers and cousins decided that an early comforting dinner was called for.  R&G Lounge at the corner of Clay and Kearny came to mind.

Their famous salt and pepper crabs deep-fried to perfection – sweet, juicy and some parts crispy.

And then there’s the Peking Duck with its golden brown crispy skin and juicy meat.

The Beef Brisket and Turnip soup cooked in a clay pot, I particularly liked because the flavorful broth reminds me of a similar soup my grandma used to make.

Recognized as one of the best Chinese restaurant in San Francisco Bay Area, R&G is a go-to for reasonably priced traditional Cantonese meal.  From a restaurant that seats 50 people when it opened in 1985, it is today a 3-storey restaurant that can serve up to 250 people.

Despite the expansion, lines are still long which only says that people continue to flock there for one good reason – the mouth-watering dishes that come out of their kitchen.
