I usually agree with you, Luke, but the Butcher's Son is way overblown. I much preferred the humble Greek place that left - their meatball sub blew this one away.
Estos tacos son una delicia, además están preparados con toda limpieza. Las salsas me encantaron. Arturo
Thanks guys and welcome

Place with be closed by the end of the year.
Just like a dozen or more places on Telegraph in that area.
We're not at SF levels of densely to support all the semi-high priced restaurants. You can't walk out of a place like that for two and spend less than 50 with a tip.
The oysters are briny (or not) and delicious.
You just gave away Jack London's best-kept lunch secret! No, really, I am thrilled to see El Sabrosito get the attention. They're great and they deserve it!
As their across the street neighbor, I've watched Peter and Melissa sweat and toil and build a truly exceptional restaurant over the past four years. The restaurant business is tough enough but building a good business in a somewhat obscure location is particularly daunting. By offering an exceptional product in a fun environment, hey have faced that challenge and prevailed!! Anybody who loves pizza will enjoy this restaurant and I am particularly impressed by their high quality produce. If you haven't been there, I strongly recommend going.
Kensington Circus Pub
While I agree with a lot of the positives about Benchmark especially the Strozzapreti dish, I beg to differ about the Caesar Salad...a large but mediocre salad compared to many I've had in the Bay area notably Zuni and without croutons! for $14?... when I got it I asked our server why no croutons..he said we just don't..given that they have terrific bread that I understand they bake there it was a real conceptual mistake.. (to their credit I asked for bread which was served)...they really need to rethink that
Actually to the south and east of El Cerrito or North of Berkeley along Arlington and Grizzly Peak Blvds to use more familiar "benchmarks". As often and as long as I've driven ( a VERY conspicuous 25 mph) along Arlington, I only know of the hardware store, church and gas stations as reasons to stop. My toddler on and I will very soon take the trip-- maybe on the way back from a late trip to Tilden Little Farm to partake in the very good deal prix fixe meal ! Thanks for the review !
Where does their shrimp come from?
Nice article, I love pho and grew up with Vietnamese ninjas in Salinas/Seaside. One of the dishes reminded me of catching striped bass off the beach in marina and having my friends mom cook it. She would sear it and simmer it in a fish sauce with shallots and peppers. Amazing to say the least. If someone out here has a recipe please share, I love to cook and never was able to get the full recipe from my friend Bin.
Tamaleria Azteca is located at the corner of Arlington and Market, not 60th.
What I really want to know is do you know of any places in Fruitvale that do proper al pastor? That is, cooked on a vertical spit? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_pastor
Aztecali is the best addition to this neighborhood. Now I can walk there and enjoy a great meal at a great price. Thanks Luke for such a precise review! I completly agree with every one of your words!
