    The green beans with bacon are a must have. As is the BBQ chicken. Skip the cocktails if you're not into sweeter drinks. Be sure to try the crunchy rice salad, it really is a tasty dish.

    Whether it be the generous portions or the reasonable prices, this place will make everyone happy. They've recently acquired a liquor license so certainly try their Jackfruit daiquiri. Read more

    Start with a refreshing cocktail like the kaffir lime whisky sour ($8), then order succulent grilled lemongrass chicken or meltingly tender 24-hour pork belly and dishes to share. Read more

    ...sweet and savory broth tremendously! And as with any trendy dish it's delish with a fried egg on top! Show up closer to 1 for a quieter experience. And kudos to the DJ I was dancin the whole...

    Try the Duck Rice Bowl - #kvpinmybelly: Succulent #duck meat over rice in #Oakland. Fried egg added a silky finish. Pickled vegetables gave it a nice hit of tang. LOVE!

    Get the Pork belly. I keep meaning to try something else. Everytime I think I'll try something different the waitress comes by asks what I want and I say "I'll have the pork belly."

    For some reason the Valencia-outpost has a super low Yelp score compared to how much hype this place gets in Oakland. It's pan-Asian party food and the restaurant has the vibe to match.

    Revised menu is a tasty improvement! Definitely get the pork belly and the pancake with scallops. Always end your meal with a cone...

    Omg I could drink the hot sauce. And get the peanuts they're good on every damn thing. The chicken rice is only ok, but everything else is consistently outstanding.

    Ask for the chef's choice. It's a secret dish off the menu that is a tweak of their dishes that Justin is eating himself at the moment.

    Serious nom. Don't tell anyone. Their Kao Mun is their rice made with chicken fat and broth! Dessert: order the condensed milk ice cream cone :)

    The idea here is to recreate Asian-style street food -- in a hip setting. The modest prices more than offset the cost of coming across the Bay to chow down. Read more

    Fantastic rice bowls! Can't go wrong with any of them, but I particularly love the poached chicken, pork belly and veggie curry.

    They have sticky rice. Get it. A lot of Thai restaurants don't cook it because it takes a long time to soak the rice and steam it fresh.

    Excellent pork belly and patched chicken lunches. Loved the peanut appetizer. Perfect beer pal.

    Michelin Star cuisine on a burger budget. Get the pork belly with the egg. Get everything with the egg.

    It's hard to disappoint with this dish anywhere, but the crew at Hawker Fare really deliver! A generous helping of pork belly leaves nothing to be desired and the fermented mustard greens offset ...

    Blistered green beans are crazy good. Also worth saving room for a Hawker sundae.

    Rice bowls are delicious but the portion might not be big enough for some, so get it with some to-shares. Service is just ok tho.

    Thai street food from Momofuku and Manresa chefs against an old school hip hop backdrop.

    Lots of people talking about the pork belly, but the Gai Yang is better. Perfect chicken.

    Pro-tip: Spoon on your right hand, fork on the left. Eat with spoon.

    Save your $: pork belly and short ribs were both tough and overpriced. Go to chinatown.
