Overheard on the San Francisco Bay Area Board

"The scallion and oil noodles are really good....typical Shanghainese dish, even better than Little Shanghai's rendition. Gua Bao (TW pork belly bun) are bigger than Joy's (which they offer weekends only), although the pork is meatier...the pickled mustard greens are a bit on the sweet side, not enough shaved peanut powder flavor, but it's the best one outside of Chou Ma Ma's Kitchen in Newark or Mama Chen/Mama Chef 2 years ago." – K K on TW Village Bistro in San Mateo

"Wasn't really impressed with the food we had tonight and the service still has many kinks to work out. I [couldn't] help comparing it to State Bird Provisions when the starters are half the price but way more interesting. Lot 7 is quality seafood comfort food at upscale price point. It is clear they use quality ingredients but for the size and blandness of the dishes I found the menu to be lacking." – tjinsf on Lot 7 in the Mission

"It's a bulgogi burrito. I had one mid-2011 and then it was $4.99 for one or $8.99 for two. Smaller than your average Mission burrito ... with rice, meat, and a little bit of lettuce. Taste was OK. They have a 'spicy' option which wasn't too hot. Not a lot of meat; one didn't fill me up for lunch. They also have other basic deli sandwiches." – drewskiSF on Korean burritos at College Avenue Wines, Spirits & Deli in Rockridge
