If you’re seeking restoration, Imperial Soup in Oakland Chinatown will have the right remedy for you. Select from several herbal soups consisting of meat, seafood, and various herbs, along with rice and noodle plates. Make sure to try their classic Hong Kong-style steamed milk. It’s a silky pudding with a custard-y consistency that melts on your tongue giving way to the slightest hint of sweetness. It can be enjoyed hot or cold, but I love it best as a warm treat.
