You Want Excellent Chinese Food, Manch?


#1248

Yeah, that area is shaaaaaaaaaaaaaaddddddyyyyyyyy. Lots’o open dealing.


#1249

Wow, what happened to authenticity in cuisine providing? Enough of Chinese owned/operated Japanese and now Vietnamese restaurants!!!


#1250

Lots of ethnic-Chinese Viet people out there…


#1251

I know, my wife is Chinese Malaysian remember? But still, it does irk me when I go into a sushi place and then the workers are chatting in cantonese back there. Come on, you think I don’t know???


#1252

So you cannot stand Taraval Okazu Ya?


#1253

Guilty…it started for me way back when when the guys went to Cancun, we take a taxi downtown, we see a chinese restaurant and of course hoping for an old, chinese owner with a hot daughter there waiting for some native SFers to rescue her (from Cancun?) no, we got chop suey and it wasn’t good…


#1254

this one is my favorite as well


#1255

Instantly trust your tastes now… :slight_smile:


#1256

Careful…Fearless Leader is on a first name basis at every Denny’s…


#1257

I was replying to dioworld, not fearless leader. :thinking:


#1258

Oh, oops…never mind


#1259

It took me a while to wrap my head around your short story … but I’m still perplexed by it. I am not sure what to make of:

a) The connection between Taraval Okazu Ya and Cancun?
b) Why a “hot daughter” in Cancun would need saving??
c) From a bunch of SF natives at that…
d) Why being an SF native is a “good thing” rather than being a pox on society in the name of self-smugness
e) How you were unable to get yourself served anything other than chop suey …???

(Kidding!) :rofl::joy::grin::man_facepalming:

The replacement to Crystal Jade. Went there for lunch today. Kind of expensive. One thing nice is that if you dine here on Sundays you can get 4 hours of validated parking in Embarcadero for 2 bucks (although, street parking on most streets around here are free on Sundays).


#1261

Went to Koi Palace around noon and there was no wait. Winter is coming :scream_cat:


#1262

NFW!!!


#1263

What kind of Koi do they serve there?:grin:


#1264

dude, I’m not sure what you eating, I went in tonight and the hainan chicken is one of the worse i’ve ever ate, even worse than the chicken meet rice crap in south bay. the hainan chicken rice is okay though, but the chicken you can tell is not fresh at all and i’m like eating a piece of meat but donno wtf it is. The nann i order disaapoints too , i like outside crisp and inside soft with little tender and chewy, but it disappoints me, i think banana island is a better choice, and the thai ice tea , the tea not concentrate and milky enough…


#1265

Banana island definitely has better naan. I ate at Ipoh only once but I forgot what things tasted like. Only remember it was pretty meh and don’t have any motivation to go back.


#1266

So, I am to blame for every bad dish out there in the world on any given day? Did I say EVER that I personally had the Hainan Chicken at Ipoh Garden? No, I said the reviews of folks were positive.

For once, I am really, really questioning whether this world of Manch’s is for me. I come on here, trying to be helpful and what do I get for it, complaints. Maybe I do go away and hang out in another world…


#1267

come on, get used to it. we’re a blaming country. have to find someone to blame somehow =)
