Late lunch at Daimo in Richmond

Alexandra Eisler | Aug 1, 200605:39 PM     3

Friends flew in to Oakland Saturday from Tuscon and begged for tomato beef chow fun.

During their last visit, I took them to Yung Kee in Oakland, but we were disappointed with greasy, flavorless noodles. (However, the wonton noodle soup with bbq pork was delicious). Having had take away the night before from Daimo, we headed back for lunch.

We had steamed bbq pork buns; soft, yeasty, and sweet buns filled with tender pork and a judicious amount of sauce. These are my now-favorite version! The soup dumplings with ginger dipping sauce were good but not great; I thought the ground pork filling was a bit dry. The hoisin beef hot pot was perfect; tender chunks of beef redolent of anise. We also ordered the frog legs with eggplant hot pot, but my table mates cleared out the dish before I had a chance to sample it. (From all accounts, very tasty). The tomato beef chow fun was fantastic. Nicely charred noodles with big pieces of tomato that clearly tasted of TOMATO, and lots of beef strips. We also had gai lan in oyster sauce that had a nice crunch. The total for 5 adults came to $60 and lots of leftovers.
