The Slanted Door. The upscale Vietnamese restaurant in the Ferry Plaza building has established its reputation quite well over the past 16 years and, from my experience, it seems that the reservations for dinner in the large dining room are still being easily filled.
The long, overwhelmingly intriguing menu nearly guarantees that your eyes will be bigger than your stomach. But by ordering several appetizers, we were able to several things.
I was pleasantly surprised at just how much I enjoyed my (unplanned) meal at The Slanted Door. And I even contemplated trying to make a return stop during my short stay in San Francisco, but, alas, it wasn't doable. But next time, I'll be sure to make time for it.
