Does anyone know of a place to have a "Hakka" style Chinese meal in San Francisco?
Ton Kiang on Geary in the Richmond District serves Hakka dishes. Try their salt baked chicken, steamed bacon with mustard greens, and their twice cooked pork, all traditional Hakka favorites.
Not in San Francisco, but I did a quick google on Golden Mountain in Hayward, and it seems like the original owners have sold the restaurant. Any truth to this?
I've never ventured out to Hayward myself so no knowledge on Golden Mountain. Thanks for the great input.
I have a lovely Hakka meal on Geary just west of fourteen on the South side of Geary but the name is not in my mind. The Salted Baked/Salted Steamed Chicken and the ginger sauce in still in my mind. Also the Pork Belly was very good. THe name in my mind is something River. I will be in the City tomorrow and if time allows I will drive by.
If I remember correctly three of us had these dishes
The Hakka style stuffed tofu soup
Salted Baked Chicken with red chilli sauce and green onion and ginger sauce
Side Pork with perserved vegetables
Like the chicken and side pork. The soup did not leave a deep impreesion and the greens were good but that outstanding (that will depend on the seaon)
Will need to retuen with more mouths to feed. My mental notes were that I should go back.
