I guess this opened: "Check Out The Filipino Menu for Bad Saint" by Jessica Sidman on washingtoncitypaper.com Looks tasty. Anyone go yet? Is it reservation or wait list like RL/LS? -S
B and I went to Hakka Restaurant (4401 Cabrillo Street (45th Avenue)) in Outer Richmond. We're definitely returning... The menu is voluminous. Pictured are most of the Hakka regional specialties and some of the Cantonese ones. Apparently they give you a complimentary bowl of soup as a sort of a first course. Tonight it was lovely chicken broth with shredded chicken and turnip. The broth was deeply flavored and redolent of garlic and ginger. Sautéed Chinese broccoli with rice wine. Pork stomach with salted preserved vegetable. Slightly chewy and crunchy with a touch of vinegar. Definitely addictive. There's that texture thing going on. B wasn't a fan but I loved it. Home style steamed sea bass, served with black beans, garlic, ginger and scallion. It was awesome. Red bean soup. Again, a complimentary bowl, served for dessert. Lightly sweet and just right. Portions are huge. The total for all this food was $62, not including a 20% tip. We have tons of leftovers too.
Beautiful new arrival on the NoVa pho scene in the former Pho Tom Yum space near Landmark in same very unassuming plaza as Tempt-Asian. Open only five weeks now, it is clean and newly renovated with a simple but well-appointed dining room and, ok this is odd to say, gorgeous bathrooms (sort've like an Ashburn mini-mansion powder room if you like that sort've thing with your Pho)! Standard Pho options at (I think) 8 bucks with an interesting a la carte (broth plus your choice of two add-ins). No vegetarian Pho option at present. Manager who served us was gracious and friendly and very proud of the space and the food. He noted in particular use of less salt in the pho broth. Maybe it was power of suggestion but sure enough after I cleaned my bowl I DID feel less thirsty than usual. Great pho in clean and well-appointed surroundings with warm and friendly service. A far cry from my separately-posted "Sticky Rice experience."
