Washington Bakery & Restaurant @ Washington Street, San Francisco

One of the places I made sure I drop by after shortly arriving here was Washington Bakery & Restaurant. Why? 'Cos this place serves one of my all time favourite dish, which is available back in Petaling Jaya but Washington here does a meaner version!

Strawberry Ice Blend with Tapioca Balls

Shredded Roast Duck Porridge
She then ordered Shredded Roast Duck Porridge (USD5.50) which I tried. It was absolutely delicious. The aromatic duck meat and the smooth porridge is a must order for duck lovers.
Fish Ball Wanton Noodles
Mom wanted something simple and ordered the Fish Ball Wanton Noodles soup. I didn't touch the fish balls but tried the noodles. It was nice and springy but had a tad alkaline taste to it.

And as for my order .... TADAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!

House Special Sweet Rice - Glutinous Rice
The House Special Sweet Rice (USD7). It was an extremely large portion - enough for two. This rice is like the Sang Chow Lo Mai Fan that is available back in Petaling Jaya but the way they do it here is much nicer. Fried with dried shrimp bits and lap cheong (Chinese sausage), the rice is not oily and wonderfully fragrant. The little bits of spring onions complete this rice dish, making this one dish that stays on my mind all the while when I'm back in Malaysia! To my USA readers, you're so much nearer to this place than I am ... (*pouts*)

omg! lap cheong is my ultimate fav! it's amazing that you can still find food from home elsewhere. although i have to say that the only authentic food i'm able to find is the KL hokkien char!

Aiks?? Not a smidgen of baked goodies?? And no props to Sir George himself? Hehe... me no fan of lap cheong so hurry to get there... the roast duck porridge sure sounds good though!

wmw said...

Ai Wei : It is also a bakery but more of a restaurant.

C: You found that? Where?

550ml jar of faith : Hahaha..Definitely no George here. The food is good, so far nothing outstanding from the bakery section. I just had the shredded roast duck porridge two days ago! Yumz!
