Oakland Chowlunch #12, Sabuy Sabuy Jr: Report

susancinsf | Sep 23, 200404:50 PM

In the twelfth of the Oakland chowlunch series, six Hounds tried out Thai cuisine at Sabuy Sabuy, Jr. Sabuy Sabuy will be a familiar name to patrons of the original branch at College and Broadway; the "junior" branch has an almost identical menu, but is located in downtown Oakland. I have eated often at the original location, but this was my first visit to "Junior". My initial reaction is that the name is a misfit: Junior is actually bigger (and brighter) than the original location...

We tried the following dishes (and forgive my spelling if it is wrong, I was scribbling). Total cost with tax and tip was $10 each (just under $60). Fun time, as always.

I'll let the rest of the Hounds comment, then come back with some of my own.

BBq'd calamari
Guy Sum (Seafood soup: 2 orders)
Som Tom (green papaya salad)
pad Thai
spicy Thai fried rice with pork
red curry beef

The next Oakland Chowlunch will be announced soon: it will probably be in about two weeks. We are leaning towards Chicken and Waffles, but keep posted for an announcement...

or, Email Mark at if you wish to be added to (or removed from) the email distribution list.

See you there! (and thanks to Marc for the organization!)
