Joy China Cuisine CLOSED 30 W. Angela, St., (925) 484-4880. L M-F, D daily. This spacious venue serves up a large menu of tasty dishes without MSG. Among my favorites are the potstickers, eggplant in garlic sauce, walnut prawns, Szechuan beef, kung pao chicken, and Szechuan fish filet. A large free parking lot is adjacent.
Berry Patch 350 Main St., (925) 846-0155. Looking for a special gift? This nearby shop appears at first to be the usual, but that perception changes upon a browse. I loved the
a precious terry-cloth bib.
