Downtown Berkeley Food Ideas

I was so disappointed in Cancun last time I was there (couple of weeks ago). It was cold, bright, and smelling of Fabuloso. Really bad.

Kiddie lunch ideas from Costco?

Looked for them at Richmond, Calif., Costco last night -- no luck, but I did get some tasty chicken meatballs for him, plus Sukhi's tandoori chicken and lemon rice, and a nice chicken breast rollup with broccoli and cheddar.
Thanks CHers

Thanks, yes we use a tallish metal Thermos for hot dogs, burritos and enchiladas. For the life of me I haven't found a wide-mouth one that keeps food hot, so if you want to post a pic or suggest one that would be awesome!
Thanks everyone for the great recommendations.

Uses for toasted garlic flakes?

I bought a bag at a farm stand because it smelled so good.
Aside from dipping my bagel into them, what can I use them for?

do you return items to Trader Joe's?

You could cut off the label and bring it instead of bringing the whole container of food.

Paris Baguette is the Asian style of bakery, so don't go expecting a French bakery.

in search of Romesco sauce in El Cerrito/Albany/Berkeley

I don't have the wherewithal to make it myself, what with grinding the almonds and hazelnuts or whatever.
Is there anywhere around Berkeley/EC/Albany that sells fresh Romesco sauce? Or is there a brand of jarred you like?

do you return items to Trader Joe's?

I do this maybe once every two months, if the food is really gross or bad or overly salty (which many of the prepared dishes are). But I find that the management never asks me WHY I am returning it. That seems like a wasted opportunity to me.
What do you think?

Trader Joe's Breakfast Burritos

I'd totally do it with some diced ham, eggs, cheese and the frozen hash brown patties they sell. Might do that tomorrow morning!
