Cha Am, Berkeley

sundeck sue | Aug 8, 2013 10:09 PM

Upcoming weekday dinner in Berkeley w/ friends I haven't seen for a while who aren't into food.

I led off, emailing possible places to meet: China Village, Bowl'd, Cesar's. And then added, "or someplace else."

One replied, that she loved Cha Am; and let's go there.

I said OK, wanting to be agreeable and un-controlling. But to say I'm not looking forward is to speak in understatement.

I'm asking for one of two kinds of help.

One, maybe I'm selling the place short; and I can have an OK meal there. I'd be grateful to hear that.

Two, maybe I'm right that it's likely to be terrible--and someone can suggest a hook that lets me say, let's re-think this and go someplace else--without sounding like I'm lording it over as a food snob.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
