Monterey-Carmel Area Best Dabs, Sardines, Cioppino

Thanks all, for your advice & experiences. We had OK Dabs on Fisherman Pier & are still looking for sardines. By the way, we had a couple of unexpected decent meals in Monterey area: lunch at The Red House in Pacific Grove & a decent supper at Baan Thai in Seaside.

Looking for decently prepared fresh sardines, sand dabs, & Cioppino in this area. Would appreciate any advice on what restaurants do these traditional foods well.

We will do just that. Markets, indoor & outdoor, add an essential joy to our travels.

Thanks ML8k for the tip on house made sausages. We will have an apt with kitchen, so we will try to sample the Eastern European delis. They would be a welcome change from our usual deep-south fresh & smoked pork sausages.

Thanks, Cynsa, for your help re previous posts. Cinderella's is on our list, particularly for breakfast. It's clear that we can enjoy interesting and well-prepared meals near our apt. during the 5 days we're spending in SF.

My wife's eastern European heritage re-emerged when the details on Katia's & Cinderella became apparent. I see breakfast @ Cinderella & supper @ Katia's in our future.

I checked Kappou Gorni & Aziza - The menus for both places look heavenly; but, yes, the prices are a bit beyond our budget.

Thank you all for so quickly providing recommendations, and for such a variety too. My appreciation to those who gave us context which is helpful in giving us a broader sense of the area & restaurant districts we can visit. Now, I will check out your restaurants' specialties & begin to narrow down a different restaurant to visit for each evening in SF. Your helpful, considerate responses exemplify what I treasure most about being part of the Chowhound community.

Sam Wo closing... help!!!! Where... [San Francisco]

OH NO!! We had only 20 days left before we intended to fly across the country & visit Sam Wo. The last time I ate at Sam Wo was during the 1960s. I waited all this time to revisit and savor the nostalgia. Now, it's too late.

My wife & I will be staying near Balboa St & Park Presidio Blvd intersection in early May for 5 days. We will be walking and taking the bus sightseeing, and would like to eat supper each evening within 1 mile of our apt. We hope to eat for approx $20 or under per person. We have very few restaurants representing different cultures where we live in the deep south (except southern-fried Chinese & faux Italian). Notwithstanding the lack of such restaurants, we enjoy meals from any cultural heritage or fusion that are made with care. Pleasant owners/cooks are appreciated; decor is secondary. Recommendations are welcome.
