Chow spots on Hesperian (San Lorenzo, Hayward)

Ruth Lafler | Feb 23, 200203:43 PM     17

I was avoiding rush hour traffic on 880 by cruising down Hesperian, and spotted an interesting cluster of ethnic eats.

I was wondering if anyone knew anything about Manilla Garden (stip mall on the south-east corner of Hesperian and West A St.) (sign on the window said "Seafood Buffet), or a Mexican place (I didn't catch the name but it had a "grand opening" sign so I'm assuming it's new) a couple of blocks north on the east side that was advertising menudo and birria (a sign of authenticity). There were a couple of other interesting, authentically downscale-looking places in the couple of blocks heading north from there (now escaping me -- obviously I need a note pad on the visor of the ChowCruiser).

Is anyone (Shep?) familiar with the chow on this stretch?
