A review of Begoni Bistro a restaurant in Chinatown in San Francisco.
After walking around Chinatown for awhile, we were ready for lunch. Craving a big bowl of noodles, we wandered into Begroni Bistro. It was crowded, but we managed to find a table in the middle. The restaurant was bustling with activity and the chatter of happy people. Our waiter was extremely nice and helpful. He sat down our complimentary hot tea and proceeded to answer any questions that we might have.
We knew we wanted to begin with the spring rolls. They were fresh and wonderful and the peanut dipping sauce was perfect. There was plenty of shrimp so that each bite had a bit of shrimp.
I can not say enough good things about the chicken noodle soup. The broth was so rich and flavorful – our waiter explained that they cook the broth all night with chicken and bones. There was lots of shredded chicken and plenty of noodles.
It has dive prices – my soup was only $8, but the restaurant is lovely, bright and cherry. The service is outstanding. Someone was always coming around to check on things. It wasn’t just our waiter, it seemed like everyone who worked there kept tabs on what was going on in the restaurant.
