What is that Vietnamese Green Drink?

Nope, it's not grass jelly. It smells like fresh cut grass. I thought it was really made out of grass, but my mom said it's not.

What is that Vietnamese Green Drink?

I usually get it when I'm in Oakland Chinatown and in Chinese it's called Ben Da Wan or in Cantonese Bung Dai Woon. It has a grassy taste to it but very refreshing. I always wondered what plant it is made from. Does anyone know?

What's Up Dog, SF

Must try the hot dog places in SF. I don't think the line is nearly as long as Pink's.

Yay Chandavkl! Good work! Are you an oldschooler too? Most "ABC's" I know that grew up in Chinatown have been there.

Best old school Chinese American food in SF is at Sun Lan Ting (sp?) on Jackson St. between Grant and Kearny (corner of alleyway across from a bar). Old cafe style booth seating. They have the best roast pork and hamburger steak (with gravy and rice!). Served with either corn or cabbage. Also there's another place called Uncle's Cafe that serves the same on Waverly Street (between Clay St & Sacramento St). They have good chow mein too!

Does anyone know of any hot dog places in the Bay Area comparable to Pink's down in So. Cal?

Durian Chips (freeze dried Durian)

My friend bought back a few bags of these freeze dried Durian Chips from Thailand. They're not actually chips, rather chunks of Durian. It was so good I ate the whole bag! My throat hurt the next day, but it was worth it. Has anyone seen these babies for sale anywhere at any Bay Area Asian supermarkets? I'm not sure where there are Thai supermarkets, but I would think they might carry it.

Here's what the packaging looks like:
