The Doorway to Heaven

I know this isn't San Francisco Slop but I had to share the love. Slanted Door is still one of my favourite restaurants in the country. Ever since it moved out of the Mission years ago now it's been hugely successful and hard to get a reservation to say the least. And the food is fabulous. It's considered Vietnamese-French but it's roots are in fairly authentic recipes, like shaking beef, catfish claypot, etc. Their fresh spring rolls are among the best and we received a scallop appetizer as a gift. Their service and customer appreciation has always been impeccable. They have an amazing selection of white wines, especially nice austrian and dry german rieslings which go perfect with the food. I usually only drink red wine but here only white. The shaking beef is great and comes with a wonderful lime-pepper sauce. The caramelized shrimp and the crab vermicelli noodles are also among my classic favourites. The japanese eggplant dish is also one I can't live without. It's spicy and sweet and cooked lightly in coconut milk. Since I was with girls dessert was in order so we took our server's advice and ordered this chocolate angel food cake with homemade ice cream. It was nothing like angel cake but it was great and the ice cream blew us all away. it was salty and fantastic.
