Re: “Oakland Takes First Step Toward Embracing Urban Agriculture

I was at the meeting. Who was talking about animals being a good thing for Oakland? No one. Everyone was in support of the plant-based agriculture measure, but the only voices in the room that spoke to the issue of raising animals for food were whole heartedly against it.

Re: “Don't Stop Thinking About Tamales

The answer is the Oakland Vegan Corridor on 13th Street! 13th Street between Broadway and Harrison is home to three top tier vegan restaurants--all it is missing is a Mexican restaurant!

From Broadway, first is Souley Vegan, an excellent soul food restaurant without the heart disease, next comes the Golden Lotus, an affordable stable of any Oakland vegans diet (Vietnamese food). Finally we have the Breakroom Cafe, now infamous for pulling a vegan "Folgers switch" on unsuspecting jury members searching for lunch in unfamiliar territory.

Put the new Flacos inbetween Harrison and Broadway on 13th Street in Downtown Oakland. Every day between 9-5 there are about 100 restaurants that are only open for lunch. Every office worker in downtown Oakland is looking for something new, some of these lunch places are really terribly but they stay open because of the captive audience.

There are only two other Mexican restaurants in Downtown Oakland, and they are not so great. You could blow them out of the water!

Also, the vegan loyalty factor is not to be underestimated. There are only so many places that you can get good vegan food at. Once you are on the mental map of a vegan, you can be sure they will ride their bike back to your restaurant regularly.

The foot traffic (or bike traffic) would get you on the radar of all the Oakland vegans because they are already going to the aforementioned vegan restaurants. Anyone who likes vegan soul food, vegan cafe food or vegan Vietnamese food is sure to frequent a vegan Mexican restaurant. Seriously. The rent is cheaper than the gourmet ghetto, and Downtown Oakland has a high concentration of vegan and organic customers. There are a few properly zoned store fronts for rent.

This is your spot!!
