Situated above Golden Gate Park, Clement Street is 6 or 7 blocks of less touristy Chinatown.
For the otaku, there's Super Tokio, a small Japanese candy/snack/toy shop.
Then there's my most favorite "stuff" store, which I call the Piyo Piyo store. It's really called "JVD Global, Inc", but my pet name is cuter. They have a lot of Piyo Piyo ducks, Sanrio and cell phone accessories.
|Under some renovations, but perhaps you can see the plushies in the window?|
|Compass (Sak's), Ash and Misty figurines ($3!), and a daikon (radish) coin purse..|
And places to get all the Chinese houseware you could need.
|All the plastic containers outside fascinate me! But then, I love storage boxes, bags, etc.|
Hungry? I get to show off my Cantonese while ordering from Good Luck Dim Sum. (No, I cannot really speak Cantonese, but the words I do know are food related, and I am a fearless orderer!)

|Sak making a dumb face while eating a baked char sui bao. We ate in the car because we were too hungry to wait til we got home!|
Anyway, we paid less than $6 for two sticky rice bao, two baked char sui bao, three har gow (shrimp dumplings), and two lap cheong bao. Such a better price (and quality!) from buying last minute dim sum from Ranch 99. I wish this place was closer to home! Or closer to work!
For dessert we head to Sak's favorite Clement Street locale, Eternal Springs.

Anyway, that's just a little tour of Clement Street through they eyes of us Saks! If you have your own Clement favorite, please chime in so I can try out some new stuff next time!
What's your favorite type of dim sum?
