The map showing this in West Oakland is wrong because the zip code is really 94606. It's on EAST 18th, and the actual cross street is 14th Ave
bouncing beef is my favorite.
Remarkably fresh, clean flavored stimulating food. Run don't walk!
Ever since the new owner took over, this place has been transformed into a modern Vietnamese restaurant. Although it shares a franchised name to make the amazing Banh Cuon, the menu is authentic Vietnamese with French influence. Iit is a family restaurant, as mom does all the cooking and the owner and her brother does the serving. Vegetables and herbs are sourced at local farmers market, as is the tofu, beers and wine. But the owner is so understated about it all it is refreshing! The lunch hour is hectic, but go for dinner and it is one of the most relaxing places to go for yummy food and drinks. She installed bike racks and planter boxes (which she waters with left over water from guests tables!) on the sidewalk.
The Dragon Rouge Vietnamese Bistro is Outstanding. Great atmosphere with a great view of the Estuary and the Park Street Bridge, as it enters Alameda. The menu is fairly small in items but giant in its' adventures of flavors and beautifully presented Vietnamese dishes. The staff is very professional yet friendly. From the Greeters, and the Runners, to the Servers, you always feel welcome and part of the family. The co-owners, Dan and Jimmy, are always around to answer questions or extend their greetings and best wishes. A full bar compliments this wonderful experience.
great small plates with asian flare. a bit pricey when you add up all the dishes you end up ordering... yet worth it!
