Lin Jia Asian Kitchen replaced L'Amyx Tea Bar on Lakeshore Ave in Oakland. I went with a friend last night and really enjoyed it. Everything was very fresh. Service was extremely attentive.

Fried Sweet Potato - breaded, fried deliciousness with garlic. Served with ketchup, like french fries, but I skipped the condiment.

Papaya Salad - julienned fruit with chopped peanut on top and an herby dressing. It got a little bit watery towards the end but mostly had a clean crisp bite.

Imperial Glass noodles - mixed with tofu. I often avoid glass noodles because they can be gummy, these were borderline but addictive.

Buddha Curry - had a pleasant after-kick. Basically a vegetable mix with heavy emphasis on eggplant and potato, with a green or red pepper here and there. Menu said tofu but it was scarce, not a big deal as there was plenty in the Glass Noodle dish. I am wimpy when it comes to spicy-hot in food, and what I liked about this dish was that after the yummy veg flavors were tasted, the spice gently burned as a secondary taste.
