If you like Asian food go directly to this out of the way little restaurant at 8th ave. and E. 21st St. in Oakland. Sample the Nam Kaow, which is rice ball with pork ,lime, etc. When it comes out, it basically looks like a plate full of broken rice with bits of preserved veggies and pork and scallions. It comes with a huge plate of lettuce leaves, and cilantro and mint leaves. Take a lettuce leaf and scoop up some of the Nam Kaow and throw some herbs on top. It is really, really good. Lao noodle soup with viscous broth and thick chewy noodles is also very good. The menue is loaded with exotic dishes that are easy on the wallet. This Laotian/Thai restaurant is an example of what makes Oakland Oakland.
