Hakka Restaurant - San Francisco

I found out about the restaurant while looking for a Chinese restaurant to visit with my big family. Me and hubby been to San Francisco quite frequently but never checked out any Chinese restaurant because a lot of times we don't feel like having rice. Anyhow, we got there around 4:30 and there was one table occupied. We were seated and handed menu. My sister-in-law decided that we would go with the family set menu for 6 which offered 8 dishes with 1 appetizer for the cost of $88. For the complete menu look at the picture I took.

The soup we had was tofu seafood soup which I think was different from what it was printed on the menu. The soup looked like egg drop soup but had soft round tofu, squid, scallop, sliced gai lan, shrimp and straw mushroom. Very tasty and didn't taste like MSG soup. Another highlight was the Chinese pork bacon with preserved green. It's not the kind of food that you want to have every day but it was delicious. The pork just melt in your mouth and the saltiness went well with the rice. Other item that we would order again in the future is the salt baked chicken. Supposedly the chicken was covered with salt and then baked. By the time it's done baking, the salt will be as hard as clay and has to be broken open. Chicken is salty but not overly salty. Yummy. Lastly was the clam stir fry with black bean along with onion and pieces of bell pepper.
