It’s Chinatown, Jake

Incidentally, for anyone who happens to be in San Francisco tomorrow, I’m going to be speaking at a reception sponsored by the Pacific Research Institute, details here.

Man, this is a great city. Among other things, it has a real Chinatown, not like D.C.’s half-assed, two-block version with a Fuddruckers, a Ruby Tuesday’s, and a Hooters complete with a sign in Chinese characters (reading “Owl Restaurant,” apparently).

    Cool! I’m otherwise occupied already, or I’d totally be there.

    Do note that although SF Chinatown is real, it is not the best place to find good Chinese food; too much of it has been tourist-ified. For the good stuff you want the area of Geary + Clement between roughly 20th and 25th avenues. Ton Kiang has been a reliable fave for me.
