San Francisco is one of my favorite cities in the entire world, and it’s also one of the most delicious ones.  I’ve already done a few reviews from the Ferry Building near the beginning of the S.F Pier.  There you can find world famous The Slanted Door.  That’s where a buddy of mine and myself went for dinner last month before business meetings in San Jose.

The interior of The Slanted Door is beautiful.  Huge glass windows with spectacular views out into the San Francisco from one side, and views out into the Bay and the Bay Bridge from another side.  The atmosphere had a lot of charm and class to it.  I found the wooden chairs to be a little interesting, they felt just like the chairs I used to sat in back in elementary school.  I almost expected to find some names or profanity scratched into them.

We started off the meal with some Gau Choy Gow which were some dumplings with shrimp and green onion on the inside.  I loved how they were lightly panned fried, and loved even more the sauce they came to dip in.  These were delicious!

I was eating with a co-worker that is half Vietnamese, so he grew up on Vietnamese cooking.  He called the peanut sauce offered with the Slanted Door spring rolls, the best he has ever had.

I’m not 100% of the name of this dish when I ordered it.  I can only report that it was spectacular.  We had already eat 3 times that day in San Francisco, including loading up on pastries from the famous Tartine bakery.  By the time I left, I had half of this beautiful dish in a to go box.  On our way back to our car, we passed a homeless man on a bench, so I dropped off my food to him.  I hope he enjoyed the food as much as I did.

The Slanted Door was delicious, I’m definitely glad I went there and tried it.  Still lots of great places to go and eat in San Francisco however.
