This week I didn’t travel any further than Oakland, but I was able to enjoy Vietnamese, Chinese, Indian, Italian, Northern Californian and rib sticking American food.
It’s exciting to see the food scene diversifying in the Bay Area particularly in the explosion of Japanese and Indian cuisines.
I made a second trip to Le Colonial, the Vietnamese French restaurant; had beet ravioli sprinkled with poppy seeds at Bellanico in Oakland; forked into paneer wrapped in what looks liked shredded wheat at Rooh.
I’m still thinking about the Peking duck at China Live, the best preparation I’ve had, and I’m still full from the hearty food at Finn Town that included a huge pile of battered shrimp treated like Buffalo wings. – San Francisco Chronicle (04.14.17)
