Jones touted a number of the Cal’s signature island-inspired dishes, including the famous Oxtail Soup at Market Street Café and Sashimi and Pan-Roasted Miso Sea Bass at Redwood Steakhouse. He also highlighted the tasty Local Plate with teriyaki beef, chicken and spam musubi and Aloha Bento with teriyaki steak, mahi-mahi, Korean chicken and Redondo hot dog at Aloha Specialties.
This feature article marks the second time the Times has featured the Cal in the last six months. In April, the property was highlighted in a front-page piece on the Cal’s long-running “Golden Arm” craps tournament (“A method to their magic: Craps champions swear it’s more mystique than math at the table in Vegas.”)
