Bargain Bites 2009 - from the Chronicle, anyone have the hardcopy version?

I read the online version, but it's not showing the list of "our favorite inexpensive dim sum restaurants and a tour of great Korean finds in Sunnyvale." Anyone willing to type this out?

      How did Koi Palace get on the bargain bites list? Just wondering, perhaps I'm missing something like a special or time.

      1. re: ML8000

        Koi palace has (at least) 5 6$ dishes.

        1. re: ML8000

          Presumably because the Chron's definition of "bargain" here $6 a plate, which is about twice what it should be and more than most dishes even at Yank Sing. And how many people order only five plates for two?

        2. re: Cynsa

          Thank you Cynsa. Could you please post the "tour of great Korean finds in Sunnyvale" too? Would really appreciate it.

                thanks for the South Bay Korean list, kc72 - I've been sitting in the sun all day at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, while all the other 'hounds are chowing together at the Chow Picnic...

                1. re: Cynsa

                  np, I was getting sick to my stomach while having dinner and watching the CAL game -- not from the food either.

            1. re: Cynsa

              Can't see this as a bargain - overpriced dim sum (which I know some favor - but NOT bargain prices) and the rest of their menu is pricey!!!!
              Now real bargain places like Little Schezuan and Little Shanghai -with excellent food weren't even mentioned. Nor was Mango - San Mateo :(

              ABC Sea Food Restaurant
              973 E Hillsdale Blvd, Foster City, CA 94404

              1. re: estnet

                I had mentioned above that my comment was about ABC seafood Foster City but somehow it doesn't seem to be there
