On the recommendation of a friend we have gone three times to Clay Pot restaurant on 809 San Pablo ave. near Solano, Albany.
It is exceptionally good...the Shanghai style specialties are very well cooked and the service is wonderful. Shepeard's purse soup, sizzling beef, tofu cold salad, three cup chicken (not like the Taiwan version)chestnut chicken, eggplant and sausage claypot, shanghai red pepper vinegar chicken, several very interesting Dim Sum....
We have not had anything but very good and excellent dishes.
One more option!
