Re: “Maker's Common Is a Restaurant Truly for the People

This chicken isn't KFC guys. And it takes a lot of labor to make the food. They aren't sourcing through SYSCO and using shit products. If ya'll ever worked in a kitchen you would understand how much it costs to buy quality, and prep/cook said quality items for a menu. I say this because im a cook at another Berkeley restaurant nearby and our prices are around the same. Food looks delicious. This article definitely has piqued my interest --will be checking it out in the future.

Re: “Copper Spoon to Replace Art's Crab Shack

First time at Copper Spoon last night. Wow! What a great place! Atmosphere and drinks were great, but the Lamb burger was out of this world! I'd reccomend this to anyone who like great food at a reasonable cost.

Re: “When Good Intentions Go Horribly Wrong

As someone with significant dietary restrictions that frequents Mission Heirloom (once a week, for the past six months) my biggest issue is the portion sizes, specifically the ratio of animal protein to vegetables/carbs. They are very moderate/light on animal protein and I frequently have to spend $6 for an extra "scoop" of animal protein. The Shepard's Pie in particular has significantly declined in quality over the past couple of months, particularly in regards to the issue of substantial lamb in the dish. Often, when I pay for my "extra scoop", as a "team leader" phrased it, it seems that they take it out of the dish and put it on the side, rather than really filling the bowl with lamb under the vegetables and supplying the extra serving on the side. I have given my feedback directly to the restaurant, as I consider myself a part of the community (I spend about a $800 a month at Mission Heirloom between weekly meals and from what I buy in their "market"). "Leading with a protein" is a paleo concept that abundant in the books on the shelves in the restaurant,and I hope they continue to work on reflecting that key concept in their food so I not only feel well from the lack of toxins, but am also nourished and have had sufficient, which is of equal importance.

Re: “A Taste of Morocco in Oakland

We went 9/13/2017 and didn't find it pricey. Ordered 2 starters + lamb shank + Royal Couscous. Ended up with enough leftover yummy couscous for another dinner for the pair of us, added a little more merguez from the freezer (plus a green salad). TWO dinners for 2 people at $112 was a very fair price.
