Re: “Chilli Padi, the East Bay's Only Malaysian Restaurant, Closes

Taste of Sing Ma in Pleasanton is better.

Re: “A Taste of Morocco in Oakland

We went 9/13/2017 and didn't find it pricey. Ordered 2 starters + lamb shank + Royal Couscous. Ended up with enough leftover yummy couscous for another dinner for the pair of us, added a little more merguez from the freezer (plus a green salad). TWO dinners for 2 people at $112 was a very fair price.

Re: “Pacific Lighthouse Serves Dim Sum with a View

FYI: the seaweed salad IS the same gomae wakame sold in Asian supermarkets or served at Japanese restaurants. China produces it and sells it in bulk to exporters.

Re: “An Ideal Lunch Break at Emeryville's Paradita

Sorry, but are you certain Paradita offers beef heart anticuchos? We were there 6/16 and the ONLY anticuchos offered on the menu signboard were chicken, shrimp, and pork belly. We were very disappointed!

Re: “Oakland's Daol Tofu Offers Variety And Comfort By Way Of Korea

The seafood tofu stew was better at Casserole House, and is also superior at Bowl'd BBQ. We judged Daol's to be equal but not better than Gangnam Tofu. Daol's seafood pancake is too fluffy and bland; it actually is better held overnight for the flavors to blend.

Re: “Berkeley Social Club Is a Different Kind of Korean Restaurant

BTW, Pican's "Creole Spiced Bacon" is dead easy to make; I do it all the time at home. Didn't even need a recipe to figure that one out, LOL. We prefer it with a modest amt of brown sugar, we like our spicy bacon to taste balanced between sweet/salt and less like candied jerky.

Re: “Annapurna in Old Oakland Is a New Go-To Spot for 'Everyday' Nepalese-Indian

Just visited Annapurna. Lovely decor, not as good as Hamro Aangan/Albany. The Khashi Ko Masu (goat wet curry) at Annapurna is not as good as at Aangan--lacks complexity and depth. No grilled tomato, btw. The fried fish is also better at Aangan, with a lighter batter and not overcooked. The cauliflower/potato curry was indifferent, too. You're right about the naan and lamb mo-mo's, however--both were outstanding at Annapurna.
