Harborview Signature Dishes

Harborview’s Menu for lunch is pretty classic dim sum. Not a lot of innovation like HL Peninsula, Grand harbour or Koi Palace.

Harborview Food Picks:

Harborview San Francisco Shrimp Dumplings Chicken Feet

Har Gow (L: $8) – Had 4 large ones with good shrimp flavor.

Steamed Chicken Feet – (M: $6.50) were good but not exceptional.

Harborview San Francisco Dim Sum

Deep Fried Sesame Dumplings w/ Sweet potato stuffing (S: $5) were also fine. The filling is different than the usual black sesame paste.

Steamed rice flour rolls with shrimp (L: $8)

Deep Fried Glutinous Rice Dumplings with assorted meat stuffing (S: $5) were freshly friend and still hot.

Steamed BBQ Pork Buns (S: $5)

Steamed Beef Balls with Aged Mandarin Orange Peel (M: $6.50) were good sized and very meaty.

Steamed Glutinous Rice Wrapped with Lotus Leaf (L: $8) had 2 large portions. Cooked just right with lots of meat filling.

OK: (Order if you like this dish)
None

Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
Xiao long Bao (Q: $16) were expensive and sad. Do not order these at non Shanghai restauarants.
