I enjoyed the spicy seafood hot pot I tried the other day, a bargain at $10.

Re: “Portal Owner Goes Pizza with Philomena in East Oakland

Loved the white pizza and the meat plate. And the mushroom pizza, focaccia, carrot salad and pickled veggies too! Great beer too. Well done!

What about the Southern Cooking joint on MacArthur on the Glenview side of Fruitvale? I heard that has great fried chicken - haven't been there yet but plan to go.

Re: “Portal Owner Goes Pizza with Philomena in East Oakland

Love eating at out of the way places in yet undeveloped restaurant neighborhoods - and tried Philomena's on the recommendation of a friend. We were hoping for the best but it was not to be. Sam Lowry was right - soggy and flavorless and scant toppings too. Big disappointment on pizza night. This pizza can't hold a candle to The (new) Leaning Tower of Haddon Hill at Newton and Wesley off the lake which is our go-to joint. Isaac the owner has researched and developed his pizza crust down to a delicious science - best pizza in the East Bay. Philomena, you have to be better than this to get us back for a second try.

Re: “Portal Owner Goes Pizza with Philomena in East Oakland

Looks like typical flavorless, soggy bay area pizza that every place is doing now.
