Chef's Wok Alameda Chowdown: Report

Ruth Lafler | Jun 27, 2006 07:13 PM

Sorry for being so slow getting this thread started.

22 Chowhounds (and one chowpup) enjoyed dinner at Chef's Wok -- a Hong Kong/Cantonese restaurant in Alameda. I preordered some dishes and then each of the two tables added dishes from the menu and wall specials.

The pre-ordered dishes:

Combination appetizers: paper-wrapped shrimp, BBQ pork made from the hog jowls, Japanese baby octopus
Crisp-fried quail
Chicken stuffed with sticky rice
Steak cubes with green beans in XO sauce
Black bass steamed with ginger and scallions

My table also ordered:
Salt and pepper squid (not on the menu, we requested it and they were happy to make it)
braised tofu with vegetables
stir-fried water spinach with garlic

Please chime in with comments, and to tell us what the other table ordered!
