That area is blowing up with new places.

Truburger will open next door in a few months

Dinner near Chabot Space?

Monaghan's is probably the closet real restaurant...and can be surprisingly good for basic American food.

C plus to B quality

Popular bar scene in front.
Dining room in back is fine for kids. Can be loud if band is playing.

Try and get the waiter that looks like a tall Ryan Gosling...he is great.

Nice Happy hour.

Lots of coupons on restaurant.com

Monaghan's On the Hill
2820 Mountain Blvd

vietnamese [Oakland]

I ordered some banh mi to go at Monster Pho today.

It was completely full at 1:00pm with
lots of happy pho eaters.

Kinda strange and confusing is that the $7 banh mi sandwich is actually two sandwiches.
Each a little smaller than "normal"size.

They are custom made in the back with freshly grilled beef,chicken or pork.

Very tasty and authentically flavored in a up scale way.

Thumbs up!

Want to make hummus, lack Tahini

I like to add the spice Baharat.

El Cerrito: Oralia's Kitchen

Moved to new location:

Oralias Kitchen

I have always found Salvadorian food very bland compared to Mexican.... how was Oralias Kitchen?

Gumbah's sandwiches and hot dogs [Vallejo]


Or try Jim's

Even better

I would rather drive to big D and eat crinkle cut fries.

Where to buy British foodstuffs?

Lots of places...where are you located?

Sliced Meat for Hot Pot in East Bay or SF?

Yep Koreana Market.

They have butchers in back that can take care of your needs.

Lots of other cool,unusual and tasty Korean stuff there too.

Free Parking

Backyard Championship Ribs

What are your thoughts on the city's coffee offerings?

Coffee in SF is always behind the curve.

Oakland and Berkeley are Kings of NorCal Coffee!

Two Buck Chuck? No Thanks

The chardonnay is fine for spritzers and mixed with juice on the rocks in a big glass...which is how I drink white wine in the summer.

Woodbridge big bottles are almost as cheap on sale at Safeway

Hatch Green Chiles 2014

Used the charcoal chimney...worked great!

Tossed them in a paper bag to steam a little as I pulled them off.

Don't be afraid to char them black all over.

Skins came off very easy... leaving beautiful all green skinless chili's.

Hatch Green Chiles 2014

I did end up buying some raw ones and I will roast them on the bbq tomorrow.

I will try your directly on the coal technique.

I actually heard you can cook a steak directly on top of coals. (not on a grill but directly on the coals)

And supposedly the ash does not stick to the meat...much.

Maybe I will try that too,drink a few beers and forget I ever went to Nob Hill.

Hatch Green Chiles 2014

Now I'm even more pissed off.

The slacker working at 1:15 said that I could not place a order for tomorrow and that there was no way of getting any today!

Hatch Green Chiles 2014

Got to Nob Hill in Alameda at 1:15
They were roasting The chilies in front.

I Asked the guy If I could get a few pounds roasted.

He said they were backed up and were not taking any more orders today.

Next to the roaster was a big sign saying "roasting today from 11:00AM to 7:00PM"

WTF? that is two out of the last three years I have been shut out at the same store.

Two years ago the roasting guy took off for a hour lunch with no replacement.
Like a fool I waited till he returned...then he gave me the same BS that he was backed up and had other orders to do first plus he had to wait for the roaster to heat up again.

Phuck that place!

(They had "hot" Hatch Chili's inside for 99ยข/pound.)

That Time Anthony Bourdain Scared Kids with the Gay, and I Laughed

Was that the lame truck at 34th and Foothill?
Now that's what is sad and pathetic!
