BERKELEY (KCBS)— The Great China restaurant in Berkeley has certainly settled into its new restaurant space beautifully, but it took a long time. A fire in their old location destroyed and shut the eatery down in January 2012.
The new, larger building at the corner of Oxford and Bancroft— after several permits and remodeling, has been completed for several months. They have a complete liquor license and everything seems to be coming together very well.
I can’t start a meal here without the water dumplings. They look a bit like pot stickers, but instead of being fried they’re boiled. They come with a delicious sauce on the side and their double skin is something I’ve never seen anywhere else.
