Sun Hong Kong - Berkeley

Got out of an event nearby and seemed like a good opportunity to give Sun Hong Kong another try. Had to ask for the chef's specials menu.

My favorites were the Sichuan eggplant with fish (not spicy), I could have eaten a whole plate of that myself; an off-menu fresh lotus root dish; and an oyster omelet with Sichuan preserved vegetable (off-menu variation of one made with fish). Salt and pepper pork chops, stir-fried tender greens, and bitter melon with beef and black beans (might have been off-menu as well) were all good. Tried a sort of iced strawberry soup with tapioca, very light and refreshing. With a couple of orders of brown rice the total food cost was $63 for four.

Wine list is weak but the Riesling was a good match and a great value at $19. Racer 5 on draft was $4.25.

I really have to plan a meal ahead one of these days.

One odd thing, the main menu includes all the Kip's stuff, I guess you can also order Chinese food upstairs if you want. They posted it on MySpace:
