bahay kubo Reviewed by: Bong The food is good.
buffet Reviewed by: Ed The staff here are friendly. Food is good value for the price. It is not the best compared to other places but the shrimp, pork ribs and fried rice are worth the trip.
Asia Buffet Reviewed by: Edward From Fontana I like the dinner menu with the salted spicy shrimp with shell, the deep fried crab, baked mussels. The fried rice is tasty. Good value for the money.

History

Founded in 1876, Occidental was a stop on the North Pacific Coast Railroad connecting Cazadero to the Sausalito ferry. In return for donating right-of-way to the railroad, a local landowner named "Dutch Bill" Howards received a lifetime railway pass, and the station was named after him.

The railway caused a rapid expansion of the timber industry, and by 1877 there were six sawmills in the Occidental area. Trains also brought vacationers from San Francisco.

Gathering place

Occidental is unique for its high concentration of visionaries and famous artists during recent history, and was the hub of community-centered social movements in the late 1960s and early 1970s, giving rise to nearby communes such as Morningstar, Wheeler Ranch, and Star Mountain.

There was a point in the early 1990s when the town was also a center of the "neo-hippie" movement in Sonoma County, but high property prices and other economic pressures have since driven out the young families that fed this movement.

For many years Occidental has been known for its Italian restaurants, which serve generous family-style dinners for a fixed price (following the European custom). The two main Italian restaurants today are the Union Hotel (founded in 1879) at 3703 Main Street and Negri's at 3700 Bohemian Highway.. More recently, the large number of craft breweries in the area have made Barley and Hops Tavern, in downtown Occidental another local and tourist destination.
