Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
I am an Arthropod Liberationist.
The torture and eating of shrimp, not to mention the abuse of cockroaches and termites, is a disgrace to human "civilization."
We are in consultation with the Oakland City Council and Mayor towards developing legislation to protect our disrespected and exploited Arthropod Friends.
This is the one policy area where Oakland can effectively demonstrate our true progressive spirit.
I can't wait for an Indian city to begins protests of the horrifying american practice of mass murder of cattle and eating them!
I agree with Eddie...Bun Mam Soc Trang has the best Vietnamese soups I've had in either Oakland, SF or NYC. Well, at least since V's on Webster closed down about 10 years' ago.
Different of course from omnipresent Pha...and thus possibly to Vietnamese homey for some americans. But oooohhhh so good.
We'll get Bun Mam Soc Trang a place to open again soon enough!
Stag's was tasty but a sure fire rip off, man. $25 for a roast beef sandwich and a soda? You should go out of business with that shit.
Wow Bijan, you're a real prognosticator! You "predicted" the business would fail "back in the 90's" and only had to wait 20+ years for your prediction to "come true." Except the business isn't failing at all. It's being forced out by the landlord and plans to reopen. Also, if you wait long enough pretty much any business will close. Hey, I predict that you will die someday! I'm never wrong.
Yeah, great place. But also in the early seventies we got Rockridge Cafe (still going) and the Brick Hut, now gone. Not just Mama's. And wasn't there that little place up Fruitvale? with the small counter and huge omelets?
The owners must not have read or don't care about the reviews of the location on Broadway.I cannot think of a good reason why they would want to open another location when so many people have commented about the food lacking. The taste of the food is basic at best.
How about the employees buy it? Like they did at Zachary's...
Clearly Danny Hipps is unhappy about having to pay his drywall employees in Carlsbad anything close to a living wage.
As a former Mama's worker and someone who got his start in the restaurant business there cleaning the kitchen, I'm happy to read that George wants to find an owner who really understands the ambiance and vibe of this place.
I want to thank George M, Spencer Moore II, Julie Moore, and George Russell, for having the imagination, pioneering spirit, and perseverance that breathed life into this incredible restaurant initially, and to Mr. Marino and everyone who's worked there to sustain it over the years.
My life would not be the same without you!!!
That's what happens when you have it your heart and soul and decided to spend your silver years with your the person you love and that has been by your side supporting you. Danny Hippo I don't think it is about a $3.25 minimum wage hike.
This is what happens when you hike minimum wage from $9 to $12.25 overnight.
:( first Pretty Lady, now Mama's .... I want George to be able to retire, but NOOOOOOOOO was my first response as well. I hope a fan of Mama's buys it & doesn't change much... please please.
Matt, I've never found Luke wanting as a food critic, and I suspect that he knows the meaning and significance of "craft coffee drinks."
Here's a hint -- in this case, regarding "artisanal bottled water":
The photograph on the label was stolen, without credit or compensation, from freelance photographer Chris Duffey, a longtime contributor to Oakland Magazine and the East Bay Express. A representative of Phat Beets declined to cease using the photo when informed that it was stolen. So much for the ethics and good works of Phat Beets Produce, I guess.
I WLL ALWAYS SUPPORT BLACK BUSINESS. HAPPY RETIREMENT SISTAH'S!!!! YOU DID YOUR THING FOR MANY YEARS THAT SOEAKS VOLUMES!
I enjoyed the food, the service was ok.....
THAT'S SAD!! AND IV'E NEVER BEEN THERE!! DOG ON!!!
Great food, truly awful, terrible, no good, very bad service. It was time for them to move on - their hearts weren't in it anymore.
