Linda and the Shanghai dumpling

Last Friday, Linda and I met for lunch in San Francisco.

There are plenty of restaurants in walking distance from her work, but we went to Yank Sing for dim sum (or "deem sum," as it is more likely spelled).

We talked about life over baskets of dumplings, dumplings, and more dumplings. Having grown up with shumai and gyoza, I pretty much love any dumpling, but I have a special affection for the Shanghai dumpling. (Here's Yank Sing's photo of their version.)

Apparently I can experience these dumplings only once every seven years. Unless I can learn how to make them or find a place in L.A. that serves them. Anyone?

When you're in San Francisco, be sure to visit. And get the pork buns, too. And the honey walnut shrimp — because even though it's a bit hakujin, it's so good.

Linda, thank you for the years of friendship and the wonderful lunch. I'll try to see you again soon!
