Best Chinese in Oakland? And Reccs for Alameda

Another leaving soon post...
I want to seek out the best Chinese in the area before I head back to the east coast.
Places in Oakland? The best? Suggestions of where and what to order?

Also- there is East Ocean and Chef's Wok in Alameda (where I am)- best bets on the menu?

      Where is Spices3? I have only been to Spices 1 and 2 in Richmond.

    2. We really like the dim sum at East Ocean on Saturday or Sunday. They do use carts.

      1. Here's a link to my post on dinner at East Ocean in Alameda -

        1. I would add one more, Best Taste at 814 Franklin. Go with whatever specials they are offering. Good noodles as well.

          1. Per my HK Cantonese friends, the place that reminds them most of home in terms of authenticity is New Gold Medal (formerly Sun Hong Kong) in Oakland Chinatown.
