Tongan Kitchen in Oakland?

Anyone scouted it out yet? It's on Macarthur Boulevard, about midway between 35th Avenue and Lincoln. Colorful little joint, at least from the outside...

Breakfast Near- ish Oakland Airport

You could check out the Montclair Egg Shop in Oakland's Montclair district. Or you could brave the lines at Bette's Oceanview Diner on 4th Street in Berkeley.

Oakland (Temescal) - Fresh Dareye injera daily at U & I Liquors.

I second the motion for Cafe Colucci, which is on Telegraph just north of Alcatraz. Don't be put off by the Italian name (Ethiopia was once an Italian "colony," after all). I liked the beef in Berbere sauce.

Kawayan, Filipino restaurant in Berkeley

I just walked by Kawayan this morning and saw newspapers over all the windows. No one's answering their phone either... that location must be the kiss of death since nothing seems to stay there very long. How sad.

Caipirinhas in downtown Berkeley?

I just had my first one the other night and really enjoyed it. I work in downtown Berkeley -- can anyone suggest a place to go out for a caipirinha with co-workers in the downtown/campus area?

decent place for group lunches near Emeryville?

I used to work in Emeryville (and attended many a farewell lunch during that time). We did Bucci's a couple of times, as well as Sea Salt, Vanni and 900 Grayson in Berkeley. How about Town House?

Ernie's Sea Food in San Leandro?

Anyone been to this retro-looking establishment? I'm intrigued... if I recall correctly, it's on the corner of East 14th Street and San Leandro Boulevard.

Lupicia fresh tea, Westfield SF report

Between this place and Bristol Farms, I'll definitely have to make a trip to the new shopping center. And great blog, singleguychef!

Wolferman's muffins sold retail in East Bay?

Anyone seen Wolferman's English muffins in any Oakland/Berkeley stores? I know that Bristol Farms in L.A. has sold them, and there's now a BF store in the new Westfield shopping center on Market Street in San Francisco... I'm hoping to avoid crossing the bridge for English muffins, though!

good food/drinks and trivia in East Bay?

Can anyone recommend a good trivia contest at a bar/restaurant in the East Bay? I know about Albatross in Berkeley on Sunday nights... are there any others worth considering?
