How To Order Chinese Take-out at, e.g., Shan Dong in Oakland

oakjoan | Oct 24, 201210:28 PM     13

It seems that every time I go into Shan Dong alone to order take-out, my brain freezes. I do fine when I'm with a group and we're all sitting at a table with menus in front of us.

For example, I ALWAYS forget which dishes are sweet and always order at least 2 of them. I did this last Sunday night when we were coming home from visiting friends in Mt. View.

I know that I want a savory pork dish and a dish with greens or green beans and meat. My ordering, however, does not reflect these wants. It's as if I decide that I want mashed potatoes, rice, and noodles with a side of bread.

Sometimes I do okay when I look at their menu at home before setting out.

Does anybody have any suggestions for a varied meal of take-out dishes at Shan Dong? Or anywhere else around Oakland Chinatown.

Thanks in advance,

Oakjoan
