Best / Worst things to eat in Marina / Cow Hollow.

Dustin_E | Sep 2, 201109:51 AM     13

I'm looking for specific dishes that are done pretty well, or really poorly in Marina / Cow Hollow, primarily in comparison to the best one can find other parts of the city. Primarily from the perspective of a foodie who lives in the marina and is asking, "is it worth the trip"?

My list would be:

excellent::

A16 - pizzas and the chocolate budino
betelnut - "shiu jia" dumplings
chilayo - mole enchilada and homemade salsas
lucca - sandwiches, potato salad, hard boiled eggs
suzie cakes - cakes and puddings
ristobar - homemade pastas

decent:

tacolicious - tacos at
cafe de amis - burger
luisa's - osso bucco
luisa's - bolognese
e'angelo - lasagna
zushi puzza - sushi
la canasta - tacos

tolerable:

lobster roll at tacko

terrible:

umami - sushi
nettie's crab shack -- lobster roll -- not enough lobster
betelnut - "little dragon" dumplings -- a lazy, nasty version of XLB
la canasta - vegetarian burrito -- too moist

Any other suggestions?
