Re: “Miss Ollie's

Always a great meal at Miss Ollie's, right down the street from our condo. Atmosphere is on the very plain side, but nice vibe. If you are looking for a quiet place then you might want to consider other options, but don't be scared away by the loudness issue if you don't mind a bit of noise. I highly recommend this spot.

Re: “Bun Mam Soc Trang

The map showing this in West Oakland is wrong because the zip code is really 94606. It's on EAST 18th, and the actual cross street is 14th Ave

Re: “Handlebar

Let me go out on a limb and state that this is probably a good burger. It could even be a great burger, and at $12 for a six ounce patty, it still appears to be conventionally raised beef, not touted as sustainable or organic or even with any non-cruelty standards applied to the raising and care of the beef, and wait-- I haven't even been charged yet for extra caramelized onions or jalapeños, much less any carbs or tater tots.

I don't mean to pick on Handlebar, but I'm just approaching the place as my wife and I did the other week. We saw the menu, realized that we would be spending nearly $20 apiece for a hamburger, fries and a drink, and we turned around and visited another joint. We all have noted that a lot of restaurants are saying that they buy local, organic, sustainable produce and meat, etc. etc. provide a living wage to their employees, blah blah blah...but it wasn't even stated as organic.

Handlebar is just another example of I've-got-cred-and- now-I-can-charge-the-asses-off-the-foodie-and- gullible. If the ingredients were organic etc., I would possibly consider the purchase, but for $40 I could head home, buy enough ingredients on my own, and serve 4-6 people a relatively decent and comparable burger. Yah, it may not be as good, but $12 is $12.

Hell, Barney's still delivers a decent sandwich for a lot less. Jus' sayin'.

Re: “Warehouse Cafe and Bar

Always a fun stop on the bike, been going since the kids were young. They liked running down the haunted apartments hallway above, at least that's what we told them. Good BBQ, and the bands always sound good.

Re: “Ajanta

Simply the best Indian restaurant in the Bay Area! Their food is mostly locally-sourced and organic.

Delicious fare at a reasonable price. And, you can have a conversation without shouting.

The fries and the artichokes are excellent!

Re: “Plum Bar

Fresh, homemade syrups; fresh juices; creative and knowledgable bartenders - it doesn't get any better than that.
