To be called "Bourbon" there are several rules that have to be met. One is that it be aged for at least two years in new oak barrels.
If their first batch of "Bourbon" has only been aging for 8 months, they've got at least 16 more months to go. If they want to call it Bourbon, that is...
Glad you enjoyed it as much as I did. Now the secret is out and that can only be a good thing as I'd like to see Aztecali enjoy much success!
Blessings, good luck. Wepaaaaa!
Hello my name is Gerald (Payco) Lee I was born and raised in Oakland an I am one of the the many grand children of Esabela and BENTUDO FELICIANO we have a huge family here and everywhere I have traveled. Far and wide lived in lots of places but always ended up back in or close to my home town OAKLAND BLIEVE ME ALL OF US KNOW THE WORK AND I MEAN WORK that goes into making our beloved pastels, every Holiday we almost fight " If there is any" leftover of grandma's. Rice gandules,but mostly the hand made PASTELES! They are that good .
I am shamed that I have not yet been there to " EAT " But once again MY OAKLAND is calling me Home. First stop to EAT......BORINQUES. count on that.
I will follow this up with how real of a deal this is However the Oakland boys would have had a fit (to put it lightly) if it was not lol
Good Luck to Restore Oakland Center! Looking forward to patronizing but hope (advertising) efforts are made to dispel perhaps overblown security concerns about Fruitvale. Last year a bunch of us had dinner in a Fruitvale restaurant, after which a security guard near the BART stop cautioned us not to linger after 7pm. Especially as the location of a BART stop, the Fruitvale business district needs to grow and prosper!
" 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"?
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.
It's been a year since this article first appeared. How about a follow-up?
Something to Sell About, the estate liquidation company around the corner on 4th Street are avid customers.... like a few times a week and they know quality and value! We're hoping to convince Ben to stick around for a few more years! Time will tell!

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