Where to rock the wok in San Francisco

See our feature, Authentic Chinese cuisine in the East Bay.

Since the fortune cookie is said to have originated in San Francisco, it makes sense we have the good fortune of having an abundance of Chinese restaurants to choose from. Chow down on the usual suspects—like chow mein, sweet and sour pork or mapo tofu, or discover your new innovative favorite from a Chinese fusion hot spot keeping things (soy) saucy in the city. 

The following BARTable Chinese restaurants in San Francisco are known for how well they rock the wok. Start with tea, then let your chopsticks and Tsingtao beer take you on a culinary trip to the Orient.
