SF Weekly's Description

Restaurants specializing in Dongbei cuisine -- the food of northeastern China, or Manchuria as the region was known before the Communist era -- began proliferating in the 'burbs before they made it into San Francisco proper, specializing in pickled cabbage, offal, and potatoes. Dong Bei Mama expands far beyond that scope, with a bewildering array of cold plates and charcuterie (the five-spiced pig's head is on par with any salumi in town), giant pan-fried pork and cabbage dumplings, stews of pork belly or lamb with cabbage and corn cakes, and crispy pork intestines coated in cumin, garlic, and chiles. The Inner Richmond Chinese restaurant used to specialize in Sichuan cuisine, and the owners have kept a page of fiery dishes on the menu, too.

    Food from Northeastern (dongbei) region of China. Come here for something different than your typical Cantonese or American Chinese places. Be prepared for a ton of spices and Sichuan peppercorns!

    amazing food despite looking a bit meh inside. 牛肉卷餅,魚香茄子, 紅燒肉寬粉。

  • Darren R. on 03/08/13

    This is a really good Chinese place. the food is quite different, and much more flavorful than most Chinese places. Check it out if you are nearby.

  • Tasting Table on 08/09/12

    Go here for hot pots of lamb with tart cabbage, an astonishing array of Chinese charcuterie (the five-spice head cheese is wonderful), giant pan-fried pork buns and braised pork belly with corn cakes:
