OAKLAND ●Restaurants

  4218 Piedmont Ave./Entrada Ave.  In simple but pleasant surroundings, this Vietnamese venue serves dishes so tasty that diners are inspired to argue over which is the best.  The list of possibilities includes stuffed eggplant (actually long slices of eggplant tossed with lengthwise slices of fried shrimp, green onion, and sake sauce), spicy green beans, chili ribs, devil wings, spicy steak salad, pho, double spring rolls, sugarcane shrimp roll, bird’s nest noodles, and a lemongrass basil-chicken dish.  And on and on.  It is downright difficult to order poorly.
