Surf Clams in Oakland Chinatown?

Reading Melanie's recent post on R and B's surf clams in Palo Alto set me longing for those bivalves. New Oakland Seafood Restaurant used to be my go-to source. (And they didn't fill up the shell with noodles! It was all sweet, tender clam! ) Two orders of surf clams and an order of their delicious seafood fried rice was a fantastic lunch for two that came to about $12 per person with a generous tip. Tragically they closed sometime in the last year. Does anyone know of a restaurant in Oakland Chinatown that has them?

    Not Oakland but only a short BART ride and short walk away.. They are on the menu at Great China, Berkeley, $6 a pound.

      Can try the bigger places like Peony and Legendary Palace. Fortuna Buffet has them sometimes on weekends, but you'll have to fight off the hoarders
