Re: “Oakland Aims to Allow Food Trucks to Operate All Over the City

" Oakland is very late to the game in terms of creating a comprehensive food truck policy."

"Oakland's Planning Department have spoken of their intent to create a permanent, all-encompassing mobile food policy for the city"

Why institute a policy at all? If food trucks want to set up in Piedmont and people want to eat there what's the problem that needs policy? If people start getting sick from the food, wouldn't the proprietors' lack of customers "regulate"?

Re: “Saigon Deli Sandwich & Taco Valparaiso Offers a Lesson in Cross-Cultural Communication Via Banh Mi

I had the veggie sandwich and I was surprised that grilled tofu was included. The bread is perfect and I liked how they craved out the middle to stuff the pickled carrots, sliced cucumber, and cilantros . Torres insisted that I try the taco with a caramelized onion, a drop of avocado, a whole grilled jalapeno pepper, and pork which I don't usually eat) but I couldn't say no to Torres, he is so nice and friendly. Great place and prices are so reasonable.

Re: “Filling Up at Blackwater Station

I miss Barlata! Grange Hall was horrible and I don't think I'll return to try this new cookie cutter hipster iteration.

Re: “Borinquen Soul Dishes Out Puerto Rican Grandma Food Inside an Oakland Convenience Store

"Two Star Market is your run-of-the-mill convenience store..."

Not really. It's more like a liquor store with, for us locals, a goodly selection of microbrews.

Re: “Best Bites of 2015

Chris Kronner's Biggest mistake was painting over the Piedmont Ave Mural on the side of the building. That mural was there for years and was part of the Piedmont Ave culture. Locals avoid eating there.
