House of Nanking, San Francisco, CA

House of Nanking Restaurant Review

: There’s no denying that House of Nanking is popular with students and tourists, who line up for the inexpensive, spicy food. Try the good spring-onion cakes or the dry-cooked string beans. Dishes include shrimp cooked in Tsing Tao beer, with thick, chewy noodles. House of Nanking has a wine list, too. If it’s ambience you crave, you’re out of luck. The always-busy restaurant has bare-bones décor.
