Finally got to Jai Yun (923 Pacific, near Powell; 415-981-7438), and it was definitely worth the wait and the anticipation.
Three of us shared a 55/pp meal of about 20 dishes, some panchan size, more, small dinner plates.
We liked or loved everything and left not a morsel.
None of us felt stuffed either!
I felt that taking notes would ruin the experience, but here's a very brief summary: several excellent dishes were based on beancurd/soybeans in one form or another; several were vegetable dishes; there was no rice or bun or pancake, which I didn't mind at all, but my companions missed for sopping up the delectable sauces; among other faves were a crispy-candylike eggplant; an orange beef that was totally greasless but the crispiness of which spoke of the deep fryer; a fresh bacon-mushroom + perhaps gluten; a lightly crusted, sauteed gluten; and beautifully glazed pieces of fish to end with. (One in our party wished there'd been a piece of fruit to clear the palate--a fair criticism, but perhaps not the chef's culinary style.)
My contacts, after emailing a request for a res, were two English-speaking individuals who phoned/emailed.
Be aware this is strictly a reservation-only and cash-only place. You must BYO; there was no alcohol but no corkage either.
This was the most exciting and enticing meal I've had in memory. No lover of fine cooking should miss it.
