"I don't know what it is about being in North Beach and craving Chinese food— it's probably all of those late nights after work years ago—but in addition to Tosca having a really solid Euro menu, these crispy pig tails lean to the East enough to satisfy the location."

"It's a simple and unassuming snack that has a nice citrusy pop from the lemon, which gives it a refreshing brightness."
