must not miss: Danville to Hayward?
Making a rare trip (for me) beyond Oakland and want to ask the same question Robert Lauriston asked with regard to the South Bay (http://www.chowhound.com/topics/427295):
What in the greater Danville / San Ramon / San Leandro / Dublin / Hayward area is best-in-class for the Bay Area? I'll be there tomorrow evening and want to take advantage of a rare trip outside my usual San Francisco / Oakland / peninsula routine. Nothing pricey. I'm most interested in a trying a cuisine that San Francisco doesn't do so well. Izakaya? South Indian? Thai?
Back-up plan is China Village in Albany, but I've been before and that's the long way home.
Curry Corner in Hayward for Fijian-Indian though hours might be a problem. Home cooking.
Then one I haven't tried yet, but hope to soon, Singapore Old Town Cafe, in Dublin.

re: Melanie Wong
After being a big fan early on, I'm now out on OTC. I had a few good meals there, but the last two meals I've had there were very underwhelming. IMO every dish lacks salt and spice, and the service and flow of the meal are always off. Plus, given the overall experience, I don't think it's that great of a value. Still decent for the neighborhood, but not worth an out-of-the-way trip.

i was just talking about this place a while back... i too went all the time when it opened... haven't gone back since then.. do u think this is turning into one of those restaurants where it's a better use of your time to order to go and pick it up as opposed to eating it there?
