"May I have a BBQ Pulled Jackfruit sandwich please!"

Could get you in trouble if you said that at a Oakland Raiders game!

The op asked for good delivery places in Oakland and Berkeley...that chowhound people have tried or like.

Not just names and online takeout services.

Famous Regional Food you find embarrassing or disgusting?

Pliny the Elder and Sierra Nevada Pale ale beer.

Barf...everything I don't want in beer...and more!

And light roasted coffee(blue bottle)tastes like the coffee grandma used to make in 1971.

Campfire Breakfast Toad in the Hole

Toad in the hole with Maple syrup is always tasty
Add a runny fried egg and you will be in breakfast heaven.

Note the British usually serve gravy and fries(chips) with theirs and eat it for dinner.

However this American style is fantastic for breakfast while camping or at home.

Reverse osmosis, Ionized or... tap water ?

Just don't read your toothpaste tube!

Keep drinking that fluoride..."Its good for you"

Reverse osmosis, Ionized or... tap water ?

Chloramine:

In recent years, water treatment plants have increasingly turned to chloramines as an alternative to chlorine. Chloramines are a combination of chemicals with chlorine. Unlike straight chlorine, which dissipates fairly quickly when exposed to air, chloramines remain in the water.

Harvard Study Confirms Fluoride Reduces Children's IQ and adults mental acuity.

Reverse osmosis, Ionized or... tap water ?

Chloramine does not evaporate or dissipate from water like chlorine...please get your facts correct before making "ludicrous" statements.

I never said the level of Chemicals increased...just the smell.

Do the simple test and get back to me.

Plus I was talking about EBMUD water not Frisco water.

Sadly...it looks like the Fluoride is doing its intended job perfectly.

Reverse osmosis, Ionized or... tap water ?

Ebmud water used to be clean....15 years ago before they added Chloramine and extra Fluoride.

Now it has so many chemicals and toxins that if used in aquariums it can kill tropical fish within 24 hours.

It smells and tastes ok coming out of the tap...
but pour a glass of water and leave it over night and then smell it and try drinking it...its like drinking water from a community swimming pool.

Humans need Fluoride in their water like a fish needs a bicycle.

There is no Fluoride in the water in Hawaii...yet they have less cavities than Californian's....why is that?

Fluoride is a toxin and a proven reducer of mental function.

Best Paella in San Francisco/Oakland?

Best Paella I have had locally is a parties or functions that hire a Paella master to cook for the event.

I tried Barlata in Oakland a year ago and it was good but not fantastic.

But they are closing soon.

East Ocean Seafood in Alameda, state of play?

"It's not amazing by big city dim sum standards, but it's the most solid of the Oakland vicinity dim sum "

So what "bigger cities" have better dim sum?

Oakland is pretty big and has not one... but two Chinatowns.

I would love to hear about the others...

Ny'ers 1st time itinerary. Feedback welcomed

You may want to try Commis or Pizzaiolo in Oakland.

Take BART (subway) and taxi to each of them with ease.

you go away for a week, and the food you miss most is....

Oakland's Cam Huong BBQ Chicken Banh Mi,fried rice and BBQ Pork Chowmein all for $6 out the door.

Plus the Bay Area has really good bread that is not available in 90% of the rest of America!

Eastbay Mediterranean Deli with takeout salads (besides Oasis)

Hello I am looking for a Mediterranean Deli in the Eastbay that has Baba Ganoush,Falafel,Tabbouleh,Hummus and Tzatziki.

Must be take out deli style,not interested in eating in.

Oasis is ok ...but I find their food bland and they don't have half of what I am looking for.

Thanks

Help! Intimate Rooftop Dinner Party Featuring Grilled Chicken?

Don't overcook the grilled asparagus!

It goes from fantastic....to mushy very fast if over grilled!
Just Olive oil and sea salt is all that is needed.

You can buy a bunch of great steaks at a nice price at Costco and much easier to grill up right than BBQ Chicken.
However you can cook all the bbq chicken in advance.

Plus the beef will go with the red wine.

Forget the crabcakes.
That will fill people up too much.

Unless you have a designated BBQ person...who knows his/her stuff?
The BBQ for a large group of people may end in disaster.

Sunday dinner dilemma, Berkeley or Oakland

Champa Garden in Oakland might be the ticket?

Real easy to stay under budget.

Plus the Laotian food is not very spicy.
and she may never have had Laotian food.

Good time to go since its stays light so late.
Neighborhood can be a little sketchy at night for two women.

I would come between 5-6 as it will get very crowded later, even on a Sunday.

Just go to Wood Tavern on College Ave. in Oakland.
$60-70 is doable with one beer each (Do Australian Women like beer too?)

Should not be too crowded on Sunday.

Favorite Fish and Chips for F and C Friday?

Why do people mention places and then not say where its located?

I know where the Pelican Inn is... but I'm sure there are a few Chowhounders that do not.

Its in Muir Beach in Marin County.

to chez panisse or to not chez panisse, that is the question

Why would you not go?

Robert is correct.

"best values among more expensive restaurants in the area, and its prices are at the low end of the high end."

Plus I would go to Commis in Oakland for the same reasons.

Good bang for your buck on high end dining.

And the odds are you will have a truly fantastic meal.
