what's new at Larkin Express Deli

Prior to my lunch yesterday, it had been a couple of months since my last visit. They're still only open weekdays 10-4, and they're not staying open until 7 on Fridays right now since the holidays are slower for them.

I tried a new offering, the fish paste stew, which leaps to the top of my ranking of their dishes. It's a curry of chopped fish in a salty and sour tomato-based sauce. It's so pungent that a little goes a long way with rice; the owner also said it's delicious as a dip with raw vegetables.

In other news, they now offer two sizes of green tea and ginger salads: the original and a smaller one. Many of the hot dishes, including the fish paste stew, are available in side-dish size, so it's easier to go alone and still try a few things. Green tea salad was as good as ever -- easily my favorite in the Bay Area.
