Question about steamed buns--Mantou??

Hello,
I am looking to recreate the infamous Momofuku buns of NYC(without making the buns). Does anyone know of a bakery in SF or Bay area that makes a great one. I am specifically looking for ones that are pre-split and not to heavy on the bun. If you've been to Momofuku you know what I am referring to. Thanks for any help!!!

Best Lunch with no jacket or tie required

French, New American... No neighborhood in mind, No price limit but tasting menu or interesting prix fixe might be nice. Thanks again

Best Lunch with no jacket or tie required

Looking to take my very casual brother out for a memorable lunch. So I am looking for a restaurant with great food and service, but a fairly casual dress code. I can probably coax a shirt and real pants out of him, I hope. Thanks for any help!

Is Matt Murphy's still Tasty???

It's been about a year plus since my last visit, but I've always loved the chow. I'm craving shepard's pie and their fish sandwich.Is it still the same kitchen crew and menu options. Thanks for any advice!

Best Black Cod

Black Cod or Sablefish, they're both delicious. However a few dollars per pound is not at all realisitic for Sable, try upwards of $22/lb.

What's the deal with Bali Hai?

The Bali Hai is god awful, even keeping with the cheesy polynesian theme. The Kowloon is definately the spot for fountains, volcano's, umbrella drinks and surprisingly decent cheesy americanized Chinese food. Sit in the fountain room and remember the pupu platter and Zombie's!!

Sonsie - Terrible Gnocchi

Sonsie is horrible. I've been a few times and have never been served anything above mediocre. It's a Newbury st. institution because of location and scene. Don't waste your money!!

Sunday brunch recommendations for Kendall, Inman, Central, or Beacon Hill?

B-Side Brunch is the best!! The chipotle gtits are a must- creamy, smoky and a nice little punch. Awesome bacon and eggs and generally tasty stuff. The Biggie mimosa is also fantastic!

good unpretentious French restaurant?

Le Gigot on Cornelia St. is great. Very tasty French food and cozy "authentic" vibe. I recommend it.
