Oakland Lunch Group Chowdown at Crown Wok, report

susancinsf | Sep 15, 200505:06 PM

Nine hounds gathered today at Crown Wok in downtown Oakland, to try the food at this relatively new place. Dishes we tried were:

Dry Scallops with Winter Melon Soup
Peking Duck
Buddha Jumps Over the Wall (seafood in broth)
Salt and Pepper Crab
Mushroom (mock abalone) over the Vegetable of the Day
steamed squid and shrimp over tofu
yellow feather chicken
steamed black bass
watermelon and chocolate cakes

Most of these dishes were on the Chinese only specials taped to the windows, or not on the menu at all...Fortunately we had Yimster present to help with ordering!

After lunch some of the group headed to Taylor's, one block over, to check out the boudin and sausages, while the rest of us working stiffs had to get back to our offices....

So, can one get good stuff in the same block as LeCheval? I'll let the rest of the group chime in with their thoughts...
