Then I guess I'd better go try Tres Hermanas What I am really craving is a good tamale, not one of those teeny ones but a big Tamale with multiple thin layers of masa and lots of juicy flavored meat and sauce in the middle. Years ago I had a friend from Peru whose mother made turkey tamales like that, they about filled your plate. I haven't found one like that since then. If you ever run across one let me know!

It's just old fashion style meals, but it's one of my favorite places. Try the meatball soup, well, anything really. I've never had a bad meal. It's too expensive for being a hole-in-the-wall, but apparently I find it worthy of gouging me for good food.

go when you can have "cocktail hour" before the meal. they have a full bar and I hear the locals gather there in the evenings.

I think you would like Danielle's Crêperie in Arden Town. I don't know if they have La Bouillabaiss specifically but they have some very good soups.
Welcome to Danielle's Creperie!

Sacramento has some good restaurants mostly downtown, but its over-run with burger, pizza and mexican joints.

In the almost 5 years I've lived here I have yet to find a decent Thai place, most are mediocre at best and it seems they must all be colluding to sell entrees for $10-12 with two ounces of meat. I didn't like much about Reno when I lived there but they had two or three really good Thai restaurants.

I'm looking forward to try some from this list. Are they not good enough?

I've been to a few that are on the list and wasn't impressed. But thanks for posting the list, I will try some of the others. I usually use Yelp or recommendations of friends.

Chang’s Thai in Natomas is pretty solid.

Thanks, we'll give it a try I looked at the menu and it seems reasonable, is there anything you would particularly recommend that we try?
