Must-Try Places in Sacramento for an SF Hound?

Come on Bennyboy, both of Guy Fieri's restaurants suck in a big way, I would not recommend them to anyone

Special menu chowdown at Golden Dragon in Rocklin

When is the next Chowdown planned?
I am sitting here drooling over the photos and wonder how I did not know about this happening.

Good restaurants in or near Rancho Cordova?

Let me add on to my comments on the Koreana Plaza: this place is a mind blower, at least it was for me when I went there this morning.
They have redone this place recently, it is still in progress.
It seems as though two big stores were put together, so there is everything you might want and more, from the reasonably priced produce from a lot of different places to the aforementioned varieties of Vodka.
They have Pierogies and mostly Russion pastries shipped in from NY city.
There is a Mexican and Russian (European) deli, a tortillera, a Korean deli where you can pick up ready make food or order specific items.
Actually this is where I am losing it, Itoomuch to remember, I have never seen such a variety of food from Asia, Eastern Europe, Mexico and wherever else.
You all got to check this out, take a few hours to peruse and then have coffee and cake in the area by the check out and the splashing fountain.
I am going to have to go back again and again.

I have been to Rudy's years ago and was not impressed.
Big, hunkin' lobsters with gobs of butter are not my bag, I prefer flavor over quantity and like more ambiance, any kind of ambiance, the interior of Rudy's always reminded me of a trailer.

Good restaurants in or near Rancho Cordova?

I have been going to the Korean restaurants in Rancho Cordova since 1979, after having spent one year living in Korea I had to get my food fix on a steady basis.
I have been to OZ, it is good, seems a little westernized for me and is not visually appealing to me because of the cavernous interior.
The place I have been returning to on a regular basis to is the "Korea House," but lately I have started to go to the "Pine Tree House" and really love their Pork Bulgoki and their Kimchi.
There are numerous other Korean places in this area, all of them good, these two happen to be my favorites.
There is also a big store nearby, located right off Zinfandel and Olson, it is called "Koreana Plaza" that specialized in Korean food and related items as well as in Ukrainian specialties, such as more kinds of Vodka that I have ever seen, and some Mexican items.
I went there some time ago, found it interesting and will go to check it out some more.
Have fun trying out this kind of food,it is wonderful.
I do remember the "Rancho Cambodia" label years ago, don't know where this came from, there is no basis for this that I can think of.
There is, or used to be a place called "Andy Ngyuen" it is Vietnamese, it may still be there. I usually go to the area of 65th and Stockton Blvd. for the variety of Vietnamese stores and eateries.
If you are interested in exploring more check the reviews on Yelp Sacramento, it is quite informative to read what people have to say.

I am doing fine, thanks for asking, still going to NO frequently.
How about you?
As much as you like good food, give these Korean restaurants a try, you will like it.

Come on Bennyboy, you have left out all of the interesting Korean eateries on Folsom Blvd.
Korea House and Pine Tree House being two of my very favorite places to go.

Hey Azlefty, it only took me about three months to realize that you said we might be neighbors, when are you going to the Flaming Grill again?
Let me know, haven't been in a while, go to get a taste again.

Sacramento cuban restaurant

I have been back a number of times, this place is a great find.
Check on yelp.com for additional reviews on this restaurant, Sacramento foodies seem to come alive there.

I have not seen the Flaming Grill on El Camino Ave and Bell Rd. mentioned.
In my opinion it is right up there with most of the places you all mentioned on this thread.
Another big plus for me: it is walking distance, for me, yet another biggie: reasonable prices and consistent quality.
Look on Yelp.com, there are lots of reviews of this place.

Stolichny in Sacramento

It is located on Watt Ave, in vicinity of old McLellan AFB, there are some older reviews on yelp. com which seems to be much more active pertaining to the Sacramento food scene.

Just checking to see if anyone else has been to this restaurant.
I went yesterday with a friend, the food was ok to good, nothing spectacular, service passable but disinterested.
But what's up with the high prices....?
I feel taken advantage of .
Neither I or my friend have any interest in going back.
I would appreciate other's opinions, just in case I might be unecessarily cranky.
