Slanted Door’s offers authentic country Vietnamese dishes, which get a California kick from local ingredients. Taste the results in the catfish claypot, crispy peppercorn duck, shaking beef, spicy squid and mesquite-grilled pork chops. Spring rolls also come highly recommended, and great cocktails and scrumptious desserts are worth indulging in. And with a world-famous chef/owner like Charles Phan in charge (author of the fantastic cook book “Vietnamese Home Cooking”), you’ll get quite a crowd. Visit the official website at www.slanteddoor.com for the full menu and reservations.

House of Nanking 南京小馆 is a Chinese restaurant located in Chinatown, San Francisco, CA 94133. The Famous NanKing Sesame Chicken is a must order – even if it earns you a glare from Fang. Please note that head chef/owner Peter Fang, who since 1988 has down his best to get patrons to ignore the menu and allow him to determine what’s the best meal of the day. To place an takeout order or if you have any question, please call the restaurant at (415) 421-1429.

Yukol Place Thai Cuisine

Yukol Place offers tasty Thai food in a simple setting with a quiet, relaxing atmosphere. Start with a fresh salad or a bowl of coconut soup to get the tastebuds acclimated. If you’re there already, calamari salad with its zesty dressing packs a punch that’s sure to please. The standard pad Thai is also a good choice, and authentic Thai desserts give your sweet tooth a subtle, delicious treat. If you’re looking to impress (affordably), Yukol is a must.

Seoul Garden

An elegant decor sets the scene for delightful meals at this Korean restaurant. Delicious dishes come standard, and portions are served with a generous hand. For a bit of spectacle, full meals are prepared on a grill in the middle of the table, and food is divided among guests. The menu offers a number of choices, although barbecued meats and vegetables are consistently favored. But if you happen to have someone in your party not that much into BBQ, get an order of Bibimpop, a mixed vegetable dish with bean sprouts and mushrooms served over rice that should please just about anybody.

The popular restaurant and bar also host a well-attended happy hour with its own special buffet. If you’re there for dinner, consider one of the “Tonga Traditions,” such as Mongolian Beef Beef Tenderloin with Oyster Mushrooms and Crispy Rice Noodles in an Oyster Glaze.
