Re: “Nido

Nido is a real gem. Great Mexican food and cocktails, friendly staff, customers of all ages and backgrounds gives this an authentic Oakland neighborhood feel. My favorites are the Huarache or the Carne Asada for brunch with a classic Margarita. Mescal lovers will enjoy their range of quality spirits.

Re: “Belly

My wife and I were thrown out of this restaurant by the well-known racist owner, Alice Woo. It's unfortunate because the burger with pickled cucumbers were good but the owner said she felt threatened by our black presence, refunded our money, and asked us to leave. This is no joke (I have the video). Apparently she is known for her racist behavior but we were not aware until after our horrible experience there. We are working with groups now to expose Belly and I hope whoever reads this actually witnesses how she treats black customers. I'm concerned she's going to threaten or throw out the wrong person and get this business, or herself, in very serious trouble.

Re: “El Jarro Mexican Cafe

I judge Mexican restaurants by their Chili Rellenos, and they are simply the BEST at El Jarro!! Get ready with a serving of soup, hearty and flavorful, while soaking in the atmosphere and decor. Feels like home, even to this Anglo, longing for past memories in the Gulf.

Re: “El Huarache Azteca

Family owned restaurant from Oakland who bring a unique taste of Mexico City Cuisine. This restaurant has stayed true to its ingredients and Mexican Recipes. Huitlacoche quesadillas and the green pozole are among my favorite dishes. Weekends are a must for their smoke lamb.

Re: “Calavera

A great Uptown venue! The bar offerings, especially mezcal & tequila, are intruiging. And the food, based on their Oaxacan theme, is tasty and creative. Well worth a visit! Beautiful decor and superb food presentation. Wait staff is friendly and attentive.

Re: “Norma Meat & Deli

I honestly didn't think anyone knew about this place! I found this place while buying beer one day when I lived down the street. Everything they sell is AWESOME!

Re: “Los Cilantros

This place is everything you could ask for in authentic Mexican delicacies (it's not a burrito shop) -- fresh, local, friendly, delicious, home made! Fantastic for a relaxed lunch.

Re: “Flacos Authentic Vegetarian Cuisine

Wonderful food, with a menu that offers very unusual items. I just discovered this Flacos today, and I am certain to be back soon in the coming week. The service here is friendly and very pleasant. A lot of high-priced restaurants could learn from these folks. Next time I got there I want to take photos so I can feature them on my developing website called "Good, Better, Best."

Re: “Nido

Finally, a Mexican restaurant that breaks the 'Tex-Mex' mold with wonderful, adventurous fare.

Re: “Cosecha Mexican Cafe

The brunch is out of control. Waffles... huevos Cuauhtemoc... the torta. It's ridiculous.
