Chinese chicken salad at san anselmo’s comforts, worlds best, see for yourself.

FOR MARIN RESIDENTS, the name Comforts brings to mind one thing: Chinese chicken salad. The San Anselmo eatery that supplies this much-loved dish is housed in what was once a French restaurant — until the Miwa family stepped in. Glenn and his wife, Laura (along with their daughter, Erin), gave up a life in Los Angeles in favor of Marin after Glenn realized he was having more fun catering than at his day job as a graphic designer. In 1986, the family opened the doors to Comforts and began a new life as restaurateurs. “I’ve always loved cooking (and eating!) and knew I wanted to do something that would allow me to share my passion with others,” says Glenn. “Melding the comfort foods that I grew up with together with the wide variety of ingredients we can get here in Northern California has been such a thrill.” In addition to a menu of salads, soups, pastas, sandwiches and pastries, Comforts offers wine and sells gift items and bottles of its famous Chinese chicken salad dressing. The Miwas also donate food and funds to local schools and nonprofits in support of the community they call home. “My wife and I opened Comforts almost 30 years ago, when food was on the cusp of exploding into an entirely new world,” says Glenn. “It’s a real pleasure to see the foods that I love become our customers’ favorites as well.” David N.
