I went back to Hawker Fare for the second time this week for lunch, and was blown away, again. The theme is Southeast Asian with a strong Chinese influence. I'm not a "presentation" person but the entrees are as beautiful to look at as they are delicious.
Issan Sausage: Grilled spicy pork with braised skin, coriander, garlic and lemongrass, chili glaze.
Kao Mun Gai: Poached chicken with salted mung bean sauce, fresh cucumber, and cilantro.
Some of my other Oakland favorites include Geta (cheap Japanese), Adesso (pates), and Gum Kuo (rice porridge).
