New Idea Restaurant — Oakland Chinatown

GH1618 | Oct 1, 2012 02:30 PM

I just had lunch at New Idea Restaurant on 9th in Oakland's Chinatown. I just had a mess of Singapore rice noodles, which was very good and a generous serving. They are doing a big dim sum business, but I passed on that, as I was alone and a serving of one item is too large. It looks like a good possibility for a group of three or more, though.

I'm guessing the "new idea" is a clean, freshly painted dining room with well-dressed, friendly servers. I like that, although I'm no stranger to dives, and I'll be going back.
