Report on Oakland Chowdown at New Gold Medal

susancinsf | Nov 17, 200503:57 PM     15

Thirteen *very* lucky Chowhounds gathered at New Gold Medal (newly reopened down the street from where Gold Medal used to be), for the latest in the Oakland Chowlunch series. We filled two tables in the very spacious upstairs space (which we had to ourselves today),and ordered the same menu for both tables. I will post the menu and let others chime in about the food before I give my opinions, but let me just give a little hint: expect some very enthusiastic posts! Lots of mmmmmmm noises were going on...

Anyway, we ate:

Soy Sauce chicken
cold bbq meat platter (duck, beef stew and pork)
roast pig
Steamed three types of egg
eggplant clay pot
Fook Jin (or is it Fook In?) style fried rice
ong choy
and two other types of veges, one with dried fish bits

(can someone else chime in on the veges, I got a bit lost in my own ordering discussions, and one was a special comped by the house...)

Total cost with tax and a quite generous tip was $12 per person.

New Gold Medal
389 8th Street (between Webster and Franklin)
Oakland 94607
(510) 465-1940
