If you live in San Francisco, there are a handful of restaurants that are establishments in the City, and one of the most well known among them is Slanted Door – a restaurant that fuses Vietnamese and Californian cuisines together. The ambience of the restaurant is also a pleasure since it’s along the Embarcadero, and the space is really well done inside. Given the restaurant’s popularity, normally it’s extremely difficult to get a dinner reservation, but luck was on my side when I made the arrangements and we ended up having a delightful table and the food did not disappoint. I’m going to let the pictures do the talking, but looking at the photos now are making me hungry again.
Barbecued willis ranch pork spareribs
Live atlantic sea scallop with black tobiko and lime-cilantro vinaigrette
Grass-fed estancia shaking beef, cubed filet mignon, sausalito springs’ watercress, red onions and lime sauce
Cellophane noodles with fresh dungeness crab meat
Didn’t that just make your mouth water? In addition to the food, the service was also excellent and our desserts were on the house which was a fantastic way to end the evening. I will certainly be bringing SF Eaters back to Slanted Door, and perhaps they may even let us see the kitchen next time!
