Planting Your Flag in a Plate of Gin Dok: A SFoodie Lunch Planner
Monday, October 12, 2009
Columbus: what a tool. Sailing all that way and, instead of bumping up against the East Indies, lands on a stretch of beach that's about as Asian as the pina colada palapa bar at a Sandals resort. On the day devoted to his rather dubious achievement, take the Asian trip old Cristoforo didn't -- or, since we know you have to get back to the office, voyage all the way to the Tenderloin. Follow SF Weekly restaurant critic Meredith Brody's advice and plant your flag in the special soup and salad combo (fish chowder or chicken coconut soup with gin dok, ginger salad) and organic tea at Burmese Kitchen, 453 Larkin (at Turk,), 474-5569.
