Hi Jaynelle, I saw you on the G GARVIN'S ROAD TRIP and I am still looking to buy one of those delicious pies, where can I buy them?
As UC Berkeley journalism lecturer Linda Schacht, who moderated the discussion, put it, “I think that the future of food is one of the few [topics] that everyone, everywhere is interested in. After all, we all eat.”
What a brilliant observation! I had no idea that our future and that of food were connected! I thought that most of us got our input strictly from the 'net with the occasional double mocha from Starbucks.
This restaurant has been an absolute gem over the years. The food is authentic, fresh, wholesome, expertly crafted, and supremely satisfying.
I can't wait to return. I wish Noriko-san and Takumi-san the absolute best. They are in good company--only the best suffer fire in Berkeley--they are in the same league as Chez Panisse! I will be there on opening day next year.
where can we buy?
Little Shin a Shin does a pretty good salt and pepper crab . Nothin' fancy or revolutionary, just good. You want fancy try Camino
Great food,however the roti meat combo has too much potato.For $8 there should be a lot more meat.
Does Daniel have a phone #?
Is he still selling at the Berkeley flea market.
Excited to see them expanding. I imagine it'll be very popular, the neighborhood is very vibrant right now. I've been to the original market several times. Great addition.
Looks like it's closed, Gene. But it turns out one of the co-founders is the owner of Pican.
In August 2013, I bought the box of food from Phat Beets. I was unable to pick up the box on the stated date. Rather than give me a box of food on another day, Phat Beets wanted to keep the money and not give me the box of food.
The box only contained 2 ears of corn, 1 cantaloupe, 1 small watermelon, 1 small Kale, 1 peach, for $25. Buyer beware.
re: #9, what is the current state of Brothers Brewing Co. of Oakland? Website appears broken. But they were founded back in 1997.
They've had so-called "Cronots" [sic] over at Rotisserie Deli on Frank Ogawa Plaza all week. Tried one yesterday and it was tough and a little bland. I wonder if those are the ones from Sweet Bar or if they have a different source.
To Phat Beets: The vendors you have promoted as displaced are neither from North Oakland nor in some cases actually live in North Oakland. Is this not in contradiction of your gentrification stance?
Man.. has this town ever changed. I saw Albert Collins rise up out of the audience and play with the house band here in the late 70s. Was one of a group of premier West Coast blues clubs in Oakland at the time. Esther's Orbit Room (Esther just passed recently), Serenader (another hipster remake happened there), and many more, where you could see world-renowned blues musicians play in something akin to a house party environment. Eli, the man who used to own this club, was shot on stage by his wife and it was then taken over by one of his band members, Troyce Key. All way past gone now... Oakland ain't Oakland any more.
The vendors at the former XRoads Café displaced themselves. They are no longer there because they did not pay what was necessary to keep the space solvent, nor did they want to maintain the space, get the necessary permits and licensing, insurance and stay on top of what was needed. YOU KNOW THIS IS THE TRUTH! People did not want to contribute equitably (including Phat Beets) as should happen in a cooperative or collective, to keep the space solvent and compliant on every level. This has nothing to do with GreaseBox, so stop making them the easy scapegoat that fits into your gentrification party line.
Displacement is a real thing. Hear from one of the vendors that was displaced
in order to make way for the GreaseBox. See Naimah's story below and help us fundraise for her as she lost her business at the CrossRoads and now she is being evicted from her home...
