At Pretty Lady, every customer receives a fist bump, and anyone who’s in the mood can request a complimentary plate of homemade kimchi — even though the place is mainly an old-fashioned greasy spoon, not a Korean restaurant. But part of this West Oakland diner’s charm is the fact that teriyaki rice plates seem perfectly comfortable sharing menu space with cheesesteaks and Denver omelets. The cheesesteak is quite good, the omelets are hearty and workmanlike, and the breakfast burrito (available with kimchi inside, if you request it) is one of the better versions in town.
