I would substitute Fish Sauce, and perhaps a bit of sugar, for the soy. I think this would make the dish more complex and nuanced.

Fyi-just got back from S.F. The sign for the Obrero is still up, but the bldg. appears to have been converted to a boarding house. The take out Dim Sum from the various store fronts on Stockton was really great as usual; high quality and inexpensive. Went to the Zuni Cafe for the first time and I wouldn't go back. The food is well prepared, but a bit too prissy for my taste and largely served in an ala carter format with minimal sides coming with the main plates. Timing between courses was far too long. Expensive, too. 2 apps and 2 mains with a $38 bottle of wine, which was one of the less expensive selections, was $165. We basically felt ripped off. Our dining experience in Portland was far superior. It seemed hard to go wrong in that city, with even brewpubs serving really nice food.
