Shanghai Brunch?

Hi! I'm wondering if there were any places around LA for shanghai brunch--the soy bean milk, chinese donut, XLB, fried onion pancakes...and the nowhere to be found "ha kook wong" --yellow crab shell--(see pics that I took in Vancouver! Its filled with sugar). Din Tai Fun was good with the shanghai rice cakes and the noodles, but are there other places?

Best Chinese in San Mateo area?

My new fave is Joy in Foster City on beach park

Mexican or Chinese by SF Airport

Hong Kong Flower Lounge is right off of Millbrae Ave...there's a bunch of places in Millbrae that are good pre SFO

Joy Restaurant report [Foster City]

My new favorite place to eat lunch before heading back to Sacramento. Love their nein go and thick noodles!

30th b-day dinner in Livermore area?

My friends and I are looking for a place in or near Livermore to celebrate a 30th b-day party--a nice local place would be great. I've noticed that downtown is super cute and I'm sure there are some good places there. It'll be a group of about 6 of us...we're open to anything good! Mahalo!

Fishmonger in San Carlos/RWC/Menlo?

Marina or Ranch 99--both are in Foster City

Chinese breakfast in Sacramento

I would love to know too!! I haven't seen any Shanghai-style foods here in disappointing!! That's why we go back to the bay area on the weekends.

Natomas Area of Sact'o

I'm from the Bay Area and currently live in Natomas. There is *very little* decent food to eat around here. If we go out, its usually to Davis or Midtown. Everything is a chain and I agree that there's no organic food here (hence our trips to Davis!)

Tuk Tuk is ok, its overpriced--we prefer Bangkok Garden on the other side of 5...Bella Bru is ok too, but if we're eating in Natomas, that means we're eating at home! I can't wait to move back home!

Chuck's Donuts (another one - San Carlos)

FYI, they're made fresh at 3:30 every day--that's the best time to stop in for one!! I LOVE them!

Double Rainbow Pumpkin IC in SD county?

They're not carrying it? uggh! They were the only place I knew of! I love their pumpkin ice cream! So much better than Dryers!

Chinatown changes: Po Kee, Wonder Foods Bakery

That sucks! I loved their "paper wrapped cakes"!! Uggh!

Favorite Asian restaurant in Sacramento/Elk Grove?

For Chinese we like New Canton on Broadway (going there tonight actually!) and for Japenese, we like Zen Sushi on 15th and I (I think), agree with Pho Bac Hoa Viet for vietnamese

Berkeley/East Bay rehearsal dinner recs?

I think maybe 50 or so? There's a lot of us and lots of out of town guests...

Berkeley/East Bay rehearsal dinner recs?

We're looking for a place in Berkeley/East bay for a rehearsal dinner--maybe something with a view and a private room? Maybe Japenese? We're doing a Chinese banquet for the wedding, so East Ocean wouldn't work--it would be a mix of Chinese and American guests.


visiting sacramento

We like Taka's on Fair Oaks for sushi! Prices aren't too bad...if you're up for a japenese buffet--fuji's in davis: $12 for all you can eat sushi buffet! And you can order rolls (dragon, spider, hand rolls...)
