Hang Ah

BiteClubbers are asking what’s up with the former A&W restaurant off Hwy 101 near Coddingtown. Word is that Hang Ah Tea Room, who tout themselves as Chinatown’s oldest dim sum spot, will open an offshoot here in the SR.

The site’s been in the works for a few months, and owners say they don’t yet have a solid opening date. “Maybe a month,” was the harried answer BiteClub got.

Bloggers and other gastronauts give the old school San Francisco spot mixed reviews. But with honest dim sum such a rarity north of Golden Gate, BiteClub’s willing to keep an optimistic outlook on the newcomers.
