I ran by this tiny hole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurant on California a couple blocks East from the BPP on the right hand side of the street. It’s almost closet sized. I have lived here for 7 years and never noticed it and didn’t catch the name. Is anyone familiar with this place? Always looking for new places to try and sometimes hole-in-the-walls have the best food.March 20, 2009 at 6:10 pm #661182March 20, 2009 at 6:21 pm #661183

Not a stupid question Bonnie, since our society is so “initialized” these days, it’s easy to get overloaded with them. (Although I have a feeling you might do the forehead slap and D’oh! thingy ;-) )
Beveridge Place Pub.

I would assume you’re talking about Jade West also, but I’m thrown by the “East on California” statement… California runs north/south. If you meant north on California, and on the right hand side of the street heading that direction, then yep, Sue’s suggestion is right.
I’ve heard good things but have never been brave enough to try it ;-)March 20, 2009 at 6:50 pm #661186March 20, 2009 at 6:57 pm #661187
I have eaten there a few times and everything was really good and fresh. He does breakfast there also.March 20, 2009 at 7:09 pm #661188March 20, 2009 at 7:18 pm #661189

I’ve tried it twice, just to make sure. Don’t care for it. Very distinct flavor. But the experience is rather unique and entertaining. One guy, made to order right in front of you. Very friendly. He doesn’t seem to be a big fan of hand washing however. Handles raw meat and vegetables simultaneously. Some can probably tolerate a completely *hands on* experience, just not for me.

Thanks Mike. Makes sense now! I just couldn’t think of what that stood for!March 20, 2009 at 9:22 pm #661192
Sorry about that Bonnie. Mike is right both about the BPP and the overload of acronyms. :) I wasn’t feeling brave enough to try it either, SarahScoot but I am willing to risk potential discomfort for an entertaining and unique dining experience. Thanks and Cheers.March 20, 2009 at 9:27 pm #661193
Thanks for posting the link to the HD report, Mr. Timberlake. I think I might goto EBB and have a nice bowl of mussels and a pint o’ Riot instead….March 20, 2009 at 10:23 pm #661194
Jade West! Love that place and love Wah! He rocks. But if you like spicy, be careful, he makes it good n’ hot. It is super cheap also.
Great food, great atmosphere, and he cooks it to order. Example, if you get the Kung Pow Chicken, he will cut up each vegetable right in front of you, so it is super fresh. Also, he makes Egg Flower Soup from scratch right in front of you.
Fun place!March 21, 2009 at 1:29 am #661195
JT, regarding the restaurant inspection reports online. While the report you referenced is kind of scary (to me), even the nicest restaurants in town will get written up.
Also, a friend of mine in the restaurant business tells me that some of the inspectors can be real nit picky.
It is a pretty common fact that most folks don’t want to know what goes on behind the scenes in a lot of restaurants :)

Kevin, I totally agree. It was what I observed in person that formed my decision (he cooks a foot away from you). That was just a reference for anyone interested. The owner is a great guy and it really is an interesting experience. He’s pretty funny and sweet. For each meal he cooked, however, no hand washing, just wiping on his apron. And he touches everything. Fridge, meat, veggies, utensils, menu, counter, repeat. He’s old school and I’m not. Just a personal preference.March 21, 2009 at 3:32 am #661197
Been going to Mr. Wah for 10 years. I agree..sometimes I just try not to watch….and make sure everything is really well cooked :)
He makes THE best Prime Rib…doesn’t do it very often. His Chicken/Mustard greens soup gets me through the winter. BFST on the weekends is the best..HUGE omletts..and you HAVE to try his ‘french toast…chinese style’.
he makes his own bbq pork as well..droooool.March 21, 2009 at 3:52 am #661198
Jade West is awesome, the food is great and it’s prepared with pure love by Mr. Wah. I bet half the things that happen in a commercial kitchen would scare the heck outta you, we’ve all seen the 20/20 episodes on food handling. Mr. Wah cooks a mean omelet and he welcomes you with a grin. I would recommend him anytime.March 21, 2009 at 7:53 am #661199
I sm excited to hear about this place. What is recommended? spice levels? cash only?March 21, 2009 at 4:27 pm #661200
I think my kids might like to go just to watch! They wouldn’t like it super spicy though, but it would be entertaining to just watch the food being made.March 22, 2009 at 6:01 am #661201
definetly CASH ONLY. For the kids..go for bfst and get pancakes and stuff. As far as anything else…just ask Mr. Wah what he’s got.
as far as spice levels…it’s best NOT to let him make it spicy, and for you to add your own ‘Special Mr. Wah Hot Sauce’ to your food.
it’s extremely tasty, but has some serious kick to it. A few drops is all I need :)
