Watermelon Trucks in East Bay

If you are going north on 880, exit on 29th and turn right at the sign. He is there most week days.

Scolari's in Alameda

Went last week...there's a new burger in town! I had the Bacon burger with Blue Cheese. Beautiful bun, burger was cooked to order, medium rare and the bacon combined with the cheese was absolutely mouth watering. Gotta try this place.

Restaurant Recommendation for Downtown Oakland/Jack London Square area

Tamarindo is closest and really tasty Mexican food. They just expanded the seating area so getting table is easier. Go the other way down eighth street about 4 blocks to Phnom Penh for very good Cambodian.

Advice sausage casings purchasing and sausage making

Check out your local library for the book "Charcuterie". Has great info and sausage recipes. Taylor's in old town Oakland carries hog casings. Run water through them to rinse out the salt then soak them in apple juice for and hour or so. Brats are a good one to start with. Have fun.

The Top Grocery-Store Etiquette Gaffes

While admittedly convenient, I try not to use unless absolutely necessary. Just remember that the self checkout lines popping up at many stores take away jobs. Right now there might only be 4 self check stands in your store, but I promise there there will soon be 8.

Trueburger (Oakland) - any reports yet?

Went there last week for the first time. Just got the cheeseburger and gave no instructions. Came back medium rare and was very good. Juicy and fresh with a nice light bun that added to the texture but could still taste the beef. Much better then Barney's which I find to be too dense. Nice atmosphere, they seem to have fun serving there food.

Please help me get over my egg loathing

Get some fresh eggs and good bacon and make some pasta carbanara. Eggs and Parmesan make a sauce that is really great.
