Golden King -- SF Chinatown Chowdown Lunch Series #11 Report

nja | Jun 4, 200405:10 PM

Seeking some variety from all the Chinese food, the hounds lunched today on Vietnamese food at Golden King. We consumed the following (unfortunately I forgot to write down the Vietnamese names of these, but the #s are correct):

#1 Pho with everything (beef ball, flank, tripe, tendon, and more)
#11 Vietnamese beef stew
#16 Chicken soup with rice noodles
#22 Imperial rolls
#23 Shrimp and pork salad rolls
#26 Raw beef salad
#38 BBQ pork rice plate
#58 Lemongrass calamari (ordered w/o beef)
Several drinks: salty lemonade, three colored bean drink, Vietnamese coffee, and Thai iced tea.

For 14 people, we ordered 2 of each dish (3 of the beef salad), left a generous tip, and ended up paying $10 per person.

All of you that attended: please share your opinions! And thank you to everyone for keeping the Lunch Series a success, and especially to Ruth for handling the logistics this week.


Next week... dim sum, hosted by Cythnia!

About the SF Chinatown Chowdown Lunch Series

Each week an ever changing group of hounds lunch at a Chinatown restaurant. We focus primarily but not exclusively on Chinese cuisines. All types of hounds are welcome to attend: veteran chowdowners or newcomers; experts in Chinese cuisines or those just starting to discover them. Seats for each lunch will be alloted on a first come, first serve basis to those on a mailing list being maintained especially for these lunches. Email if you would like to be added to that list for future lunches in this series

The SFCCLS are private, volunteer assisted events. No agency relationship, express or implied exists between any parties and Chowhound, Inc. These are not Chowhound, Inc. sponsored events.
