New: Papamingo in Berkeley (identical to Pinkberry)

Tried it and wasn't impressed. The yogurt was watery. I ordered it with blueberries and they gave me about 6 of them. Personally, I like Michelle's a whole lot better. Frozen yogurt was tangier and the gave me a lot of fruit.

Fantastic Seascape Strawberries

I don't recall the name of the vendor but it definitely was not Lucero's. The vendor was directly across from Blue Bottle & Frog Hollow.

June Breakfast Tour...suggestions needed.

I have two to add. Sam's Log Cabin in Albany (I recommed fish sticks and eggs for breakfast) and Gorilla Cafe in Berkely (killer waffles!).

Oakland - DeClancy's Welcome Table Chicken & Waffle Breakfast

Has anyone tried their smoked prime rib? I've been meaning to go back to try.

Mi Pueblo Food Center, Oakland - NEW anyone check it out?

Nice looking produce at real good prices. One night for dinner, I brought home some carnitas, guacamole, and tortillas - YUM!

I also bought some Oaxacan cheese because it looked interesting, kind of like string cheese. Made some quesadillas with the cheese and was real happy I gave the cheese a try.

BBQ at The Brick Pig's House - Nice People!

Looking for good BBQ and haven't been to The Brick Pig's House (5973 Shattuck Ave., Oakland), then you must give it a try. The owners are so FRIENDLY and really deserve your support, oh yeah, BBQ is real good too!

My dinner tonight: pork ribs, side of baked beans (very tasty, lots of black pepper flavor) and coleslaw, diet coke and for dessert, sweet potato pie. All of this for $14 and change.

Cooking classes in Bay Area

Thai cooking - I've been taking annual Thai cooking lessons in Oakland from Kasma Loha Unchit for the past 5 years or so (http://www.thaifoodandtravel.com).

Indian cooking - It's been a few years since I've taken a class from Ruta, but I would certainly recommend doing so. Like Kasma, Ruta also teaches from her home in Oakland http://www.rutaruta.com.

Lois the Pie Queen Still Open?

Noticed the Lois the Pie Queen sign is no longer on MLK. Is the restaurant still open?
