I haven't tried Cafe 88 yet, but I picked up their menu today after a delicious frog lunch nearby (between 8th and 9th on Franklin).

I limited the “International version” of their menu to one dish per country.

Portuguese style chicken rice $6
Diced duck in French style $7
Sizzling Swiss steak $18
Thai style pineapple seafood rice $6.50
Singapore vermicelli $5.50
Malaysian curry lamb chop $13
Grilled pork chop in Vietnamese style $7
Mongolian beef $6.50
Japanese pork cutlet w/udon noodle soup $5.50
Russian borsch beef stew macaroni $4.50 (borsch $3)

Shanghai style chow mein $5.50
Szechuan sauce chicken & green $6.50
Tofu in Chiu style $7.50
Wo style fish $3
Yan Chow fried rice
Hong Kong style milk tea $2

Honorable mention: Baked minced beef spaghetti $5.50, Satay beef lo mein $6.50, spareribs with BBQ sauce $7, Pork chop bun $3.50, Abalone & chicken porridge &8, Banana split, $4,

Open 8 – 10 pm, 7 days/week. 388 9th street, #181, Oakland

Either the chef needs help paring down his menu, or he could turn out to be a genius, who knows? (For the moment, I think I will pass... the borsch sounds intriguing, though.)
