Dragon River @ Geary & 19th-Hakka

Han Lukito | Jul 5, 200306:57 PM     3

This place provides the customary hakka 3 sauces: sweet green chilis, red chilis and mix of ginger and garlic. Outstanding condiments for sure.

Salt baked chicken: nice white fleshed chicken pieces although it is not as nice as hai-nam chicken found in Singapore but probably one of the best in SF.

Kao yuk-pork bacon with preserved veg: it is not as good as Utopia. It had a sweet gingery aftertaste instead of just salty.But it is cooked properly, soft texture.

Oyster pancake: small chopped oysters mixed in a round shaped pancake of fried egg. Not the best by far.

Fried tofu stuffed with ground fish: quite tasty especially with the thick brown sauce provided. Only 8 pieces and a bit small in size.

Deep fried shrimp balls: Hakka excels in fried stuff. It's made up of generous sized ball of ground shrimp meat dusted in crumbs. However, my sis in law made a much better version. A sweet sauce is provided although not very tasty IMO.

Dishes priced from $7-11 and rice is charge $1 per person. Decent Hakka food if you know what dishes to order. There are other items to explore - let me know what others have found good here.
