This location has been flagged as "Closed".

This Hong Kong-style cafe, tucked inside the Pacific Renaissance Plaza, is one of the better cheap lunch spots in Oakland Chinatown: The service can be brusque and not-so-English-friendly, but $5.50 will buy you a rice plate piled high with crisp-skinned roast pig or some of the most tender, meatiest roast duck in town. The salted steamed chicken (lean and toothsome) is also good, served with a scallion-ginger dipping sauce. Meanwhile, one of the restaurant’s best-kept secrets is the individual-portion hot pot, available during dinner only. It may not be the best, or most sumptuous, hot pot option in Chinatown, but $13 buys an impressive spread of meat and seafood— a fine option when you can’t pull together a big group for communal hot pot dining.
