Pin It The R & G Lounge located in San Francisco's Chinatown was packed on a Tuesday night. We had made reservations just that afternoon, and good thing too. After a brief wait, we were seated in one of the restaurant's dining rooms. The highlight of the evening was the most delicious fried salt and pepper crab, R & G's specialty. When it arrived, we were in awe, as it smelled as good as it looked. It took us a while, but we finished it off, licking our fingers the whole time.
The entertaining portion of the night did not involve food at all, but an obnoxious family of three, seated a table away. The parents, along with their seventeen-ish daughter, dressed up like a Kardashian, texting all through dinner, took about six minutes to order. Now, six minutes is a very long time to place an order for three people. Very long. Especially when the order ends up being egg rolls, chow mein, and some sort of rice. It was painful to witness. Why come to a fancy Chinese restraurant and order items off the Panda Express menu?
The best part was when the daughter removed a tube of hand sanitizer from her purse, placed it on the table and proceeded to sanitize after every course, all the while texting.
