Le Cheval

510-763-8495  •  $$
ADDRESS: 1007 Clay St, Oakland, CA 94607

CUISINE: Asian Fusion, Vietnamese, Asian

FEATURES: Full Bar, Handicap Access, Kid Friendly, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly

DETAILS
Reopened in late winter 2012 after leaving its original Oakland location because of landlord issues in 2010, Le Cheval is truly like no place else in the Bay Area. Businesspeople, large families and couples alike gather in the lively warehouse-like structure, spinning family-style dishes on lazy Susans. Authentic Vietnamese, sometimes beyond the limits of less adventurous American tastes, is the menu's subject. (Don't be alarmed at the sight of fermented snakes in the aptly named snake wine, for instance.) Multiple pages of soups, stews and noodle dishes featuring various meats, poultry, seafood and vegetables may be a bit daunting at first glance, but the descriptions in English help. When in doubt: The famed Bo 7 Mon, beef prepared seven ways, steals the show.

 

Full bar. Serving lunch Mon-Sat, dinner nightly. "This large, boisterous establishment gave many diners in the Bay Area their first taste of authentic Vietnamese food. Twenty years later, a walk through the door is still an experience: hot-pot soups shooting flames like volcanoes, huge parties talking as much as eating, an army of servers practically sprinting among the tables, enormous paintings of the namesake horse on the walls."
