Best / Worst things to eat in Marina / Cow Hollow.
I'm looking for specific dishes that are done pretty well, or really poorly in Marina / Cow Hollow, primarily in comparison to the best one can find other parts of the city. Primarily from the perspective of a foodie who lives in the marina and is asking, "is it worth the trip"?
My list would be:
A16 - pizzas and the chocolate budino
betelnut - "shiu jia" dumplings
chilayo - mole enchilada and homemade salsas
lucca - sandwiches, potato salad, hard boiled eggs
suzie cakes - cakes and puddings
ristobar - homemade pastas
tacolicious - tacos at
cafe de amis - burger
luisa's - osso bucco
luisa's - bolognese
e'angelo - lasagna
zushi puzza - sushi
la canasta - tacos
lobster roll at tacko
umami - sushi
nettie's crab shack -- lobster roll -- not enough lobster
betelnut - "little dragon" dumplings -- a lazy, nasty version of XLB
la canasta - vegetarian burrito -- too moist
Any other suggestions?

Next time you are at tacolicious try the chocolate pudding with olive oil made famous by Laiola. Pretty much everything at Bistro Aix is solid but not exciting.
All of the grilled cheeses I've had at Blue Barn Gourmet have been good, but the Sheep is exceptional, imo. Their salads are also excellent, but I don't order any of the named salads, I'm a custom sorta guy.

Chotto-the ramen (considering the neighborhood)
Marina Submarine (not Marina Deli they are better) yes, confusing.
