Kapok Chinese Seafood Alameda (thanks Gordon!)

Ruth Lafler | Nov 2, 200102:32 PM

Was in the mood for takeout last night and decided to give Kapok Seafood (1511 Webster) a try, since Gordon Wing had mentioned it a couple of times.

I don't think I would have tried it without a recommendation, since the restaurant itself is rather tattered and dingy, but (except for the potstickers, which were only so-so) everything I ordered was excellent. I'm happily scarfing down the leftover eggplant as I type.

I still think I prefer East Ocean for sit-down, but Kapok just went to the head of the take-out list.

As a bonus, while I was waiting for my order I walked down Webster and found a middle eastern market and picked up a menu from and Indian place (Sahib, I think) my roommate (who is not a chowhound but has a decent palate) has been recommending.
