Re: “What to Do When ICE Raids Your Restaurant

Hey Rich, what imaginary world are you living in? ICE just shot and killed a man in Chicago the other day. There are numerous reports of ICE enforcing Dump's inane and ridiculous command. Why not do something called an internet search? And why shouldn't citizens or sensible politicians bash the current regime? Dump and his swamp creatures are the source of some of the most disgusting and assbackwards policy changes in US history.

Re: “Eating Chinatown: A Walkable Guide to Oakland's Most Delicious Neighborhood

Luke, you have just broken the seal! I have always wanted to see a comprehensive guide to Oakland Chinatown for both restaurants and the markets. I've been putting a list together myself but I think a project like that would need a full team. Are you interested in putting one together?

Re: “What to Do When ICE Raids Your Restaurant

Key, to date there has been no ice raid or other enforcement. The media and politicians are creating histeria around this issue. Sure find a few cases across the US and make it sound like every neighborhood is involved. The politicians should work on solving the problem instead of exploiting it or just bashing the current regime.

Re: “In Praise of Oakland’s Koreana Plaza

Thank you for highlighting one of the gems of Oakland (and well deserved). We shop there weekly. The owners have done a lot of work to revitalized that part of town.

Re: “The Anti-Sheep Mentality of Alameda's Mama Papa Lithuania

Ok, this is a good write up. I'll add here, the restaurant is cozy, the staff are kind, and the food is quite delicious. If you have an opportunity to go, then make sure you do.

Re: “In Praise of Oakland’s Koreana Plaza

We still call it "Pusan Market"

Laotian food is amazing --herbal, fresh, pungent, spicy, complex. I've had it in Laos, Thailand, and here. Vientiane Kitchen is my favorite place in the Bay Area. The mok ba there is delicious as is their sai ooa

Re: “The Curious History of the Eritrean and Ethiopian Veggie Combo

Thank you for having a list of unique dishes available. As much as I love Ethiopian food I found that restaurants tend to offer the same dishes. It all tastes and looks the same. Some of it better than others of course. Cafe Colucci puts various hummus-like toppings on their salads, which taste fantastic. I think if Ethiopian restaurants would offer more unique, non-typical dishes I would eat there more often. Bay Area diners are adventurous! Take advantage of this!.

Re: “In Praise of Oakland’s Koreana Plaza

Man you all are giving up all the Towns stuff, and now you got a chump from Hayward giving it up too. Oh Lawd why do we get all these losers?? That is the coolest place for a quick lunch, fresh fish, and good soups..the ramen comment is cool but the parking lot is going to be far worse, and that part of Tele has those stupid bike lanes so it drags through there...us neighbors love Koreana Plaza!!

Re: “The Curious History of the Eritrean and Ethiopian Veggie Combo

Excellent article. I've been enjoying the combo platters but now I understand the cultural significance of the offerings.

Re: “East Bay Breakfast Spots that Don't Involve Waiting in Long Lines

Interesting that you didn't find a line at Jim's on a weekend? We went last year and there was a good-sized line even at 11a. The line moves fast, tho; those waitresses are pros!

Re: “Oakland's Dive Bar Aficionados Adapt to the City's Changing Bar Scene

Yeah I remember djing a bar at the lake and them saying the music wasn't right and that they wanted a certain crowd and it "wasn't a race thing" but it clearly must have been because they certainly couldn't phrase what was wrong with the crowd without brining up race. It was the first time someone had been that upfront about the kind of unspoken racism that a lot places out here perpetuate. It was a few years ago and it's another place altogether now.

Re: “Four East Bay Sodas Perfect for Sipping — or Pairing with Ice Cream for Floats

If we tax soda then we should also tax other toxics that are out there causing harm to our bodies. Hurting the poor or not... Taxing anything because of our health should go across the board or nothing at all. Its ridiculous and is getting out of hand. It's like trying to get McDonald's to sell healthy food. People who want to eat healthy do not frequent McDonald's.

Re: “Four East Bay Sodas Perfect for Sipping — or Pairing with Ice Cream for Floats

"..hurts the poor". Is this fact or fantasy? It seems to me that soda tax could just as easily benefit the poor, pricing out of their reach toxic products causing diabetes, heart problems, high blood pressure and any number of other health problems stemming from obesity. Seems like an excellent way to counter the overwhelming power of those who manufacture such products. We tax cigarettes to help pay for the health care costs of treating smoking-related diseases. Taxing toxic 'foods' seems a logical next step.

Re: “Four East Bay Sodas Perfect for Sipping — or Pairing with Ice Cream for Floats

So if you love soda why are you for the soda tax? It only hurts the poor.

Re: “Oakland's Dive Bar Aficionados Adapt to the City's Changing Bar Scene

It's not genetrification, and I get that bars come and go. What Oakland DOESN'T need is more hipster bars with "mixologists"! So sick of seeing overpriced cocktails, and food at the "newest, hottest, lame ass" bar.

Re: “Oakland's Dive Bar Aficionados Adapt to the City's Changing Bar Scene

GO sports bar closing is a serious bummer. It's not about having a dive bar to go to or about gentrification or changing with the times. Oakland is missing a Good quality sports bar with tons of TVs and all the games playing on Sundays. Somewhere where you can order a light beer without a judgemental look. It doesn't need another boring cocktail lounge where I can get a $14 artisanal bourbon in rose petal water. THAT is what we have enough of.
