Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Food in Oakland stinks. No fine food restyrants.
Actually Oakland has many black owned businesses and east and west Oakland have a lot of middle class blacks living there. I got a friend's cousin who grew up in the east Oakland hills and still live there. And it's more than two black owned restaurants in downtown Oakland or uptown as they call it now but it's really North Oakland especially on Telegraph. And telegraph has many African owned restaurants on that street.I know this I grew up in Northern California and I can tell you this. Many blacks own businesses in Oakland, some old time ones have closed down over the last few years but that's cause they have not changed with the times. Kingston 11, Miss Ollie's,and Pican have changed and adjusted with the times. So it's more than two black owned restaurants in downtown Oakland. It's plenty more all over Oakland. And everybody in east and west Oakland ain't poor like either. But these new black owned restaurants in Oakland are the answer to gentrification.
Two black-owned in a sea of white-owned. I guess they are considered the quota.
Is it true that Shan Dong doesn't make buns anymore? I stopped in recently, and the owner lady said this was the case.
You don't need to be vegan to appreciate the businesses and products talked about in this article.
10/10 would recommend.
I loved reading about the burgeoning Vegan scene in the East Bay. I live in North Marin and travel to Berkeley specifically to support Republic of V. They have an amazing variety of products, from oldies to goodies to the latest foods on the market. It makes me do a happy dance just thinking about! I'm also a big fan of Souley Vegan on Broadway. and Herbivore downtown. Vegan Power!
In CA, you can only fill growlers if you're a brewery...so no can do Ajen Birmingham.
Craft Beer - Its more than a revolution, its a takeover.
And this article mentions nothing about her selection of Lunch Pack. How many varieties?
She should get a growler fill station!
I love visiting Republic of V and stocking up (esp. on Miyoko's cheese and vegan fish sauce) on our way home from San Fransisco back to Sacramento. Happy to see the coverage! This goes to show vegan is becoming more mainstream.
THere is SOOOOOOO much more good beer over here, in Japan - lots to look forward to!
Don't forget to check out Baagan in San Ramon if you're looking for some delicious vegan food.

I'm planning a trip to the Bay Area JUST to visit all these awesome places- thanks for the coverage :)
We are BEYOND fortunate to have so many excellent options in the East Bay and beyond!!! Not just vegan food, Vegan Cuisine.
Love Republic of V, and the burgeoning East Bay vegan food scene. What's not to love!?
Great to see so many of my favorite businesses mentioned here! Thanks for covering the growing East Bay vegan scene! We definitely have an amazing community.
Yes! Just one more reason to love Oakland. A vegan diet is about compassion and justice for animals and for the planet. A movement that feels right at home in Oakland 😊
