Good Malaysian food in San Francisco

We went to San Francisco for a trade show last week where we exhibited. Stopped in Daly City, just 4 miles south of SF on the way in and had a delicious Malaysian lunch at Banana Island with Roti Canai, squid, Hianese Chicken and Lady Fingers (311 Lake Merced Blvd., Daly City, CA, 650-756-6868), before checking into our hotel.

Had some real Spanish tapas the first night there – Bacalao, Serrano ham, Blood sausage, Butternut Squash Gratin at a place called Ramblas on Valencia. Did Le Colonial for some upscale Vietnamese, Kokkari for lambs tongue and some of the best Octupus and Greek food and wine that I have ever had, Slanted Door for oysters and more upscale Vietnamese, Japanese Dinner at Mifune and Japanese Breakfast at the hotel (after the show we moved to a hotel in Japantown), Korean, more Malaysian at Penang Garden at 728 Washington Street, 415 296-7878 in Chinatown (a tasty Duck and squash curry), Dim Sum at Canton Seafood and Dim Sum, 655 Folsom Street, 415-495-3064, and Moroccan at a place called Marrakech near Union Square which had a decent rabbit dish, and show (but was more of a tourist trap), and a nice Pot au feu with duck and pigeon at the market on the Embarcadero.
