Arrrgh, what's with Asian food in Contra Costa?

Dick Locke | Nov 30, 200207:08 PM     8

Moved here from SF and going through Asian food withdrawal. Looking for "I'm too tired to cook, let's get Chinese (or Thai or Vietnamese or Japanese) that's both good and cheap. Restaurants like Alice's or Regent Thai or Manoras come to mind. Highly spiced, fresh ingredients, simple preparation.

Did find decent Cantonese at Spring Garden, decent Thai at Jitr, decent but expensive sushi at Miraku but otherwise have had so many disappointing meals that we're gun-shy. Who told the Chinese chefs that burbanites like lots of sugar, anyway?

So, looking for Northern Chinese, any kind of Thai, and a sushi bar that shows some signs of Japanese presence.
