Translating Chinese New Year's Menus, Part 5: Hakka Restaurant

|Soundtrack for 2010.|
Today's menu ― the last in our series ― comes from Outer Richmond's new Hakka Restaurant. Perhaps because the place is so new, Hakka's two dinners are a real bargain: $198 or $168 for eight to ten people. Call to reserve a table, though, before you show up with nine of your hungriest friends.
