Re: “Ambiance Makes a Big Impression at 4505 Burgers & BBQ

The pork ribs are absolutely garbage as well. The Soft-Serve, Beans, Rolls are worth a visit, I guess, but that's not a meal. Was heartening that it wasn't only random recent white influx eating there.

Re: “Los Carnalitos Brings a Taste of Mexico City to Hayward

My sister and I are from Mexico and we were looking for a place to eat . Found this place by chance and we were kind of nervous about eating there . We didnt look at any reviews we just were in that area looking for a place to eat . So , we gave it a try and man o man the food is delicious I even took some to go, for the next day meal. you dont find good authentic Mexican food in this area . Definitely will recommend to all my friends and family .

Re: “Porque No? Brings Fine Street Tacos to Rockridge

Cactus ain't necessarily great for tacos but it's a great place to take the family for affordable and healthy mexican food. Don't sleep on it.

Re: “Porque No? Brings Fine Street Tacos to Rockridge

"For a more decadent treat, try the steak super taco, served on a blistered, crunchy tortilla with pepper jack cheese melted into the shell to create stretchy cheese pulls with each bite. Guacamole and sour cream heaped on top provided richness, balanced by pico de gallo for freshness" I have never had a taco in Mexico or an East Oakland taqueria like may be delicious but it doesn't sound legit... pepper jack cheese??...more like great Taco Bell or Chipotle Americanized version IMHO

Re: “Mama Oakland Is Full of Hospitality and Heart

I'm a little confused at the tag line - based on that, I'd assume you liked the food more than you did.

Re: “Slurping Snail Soup at R' Noodles

Please retire the word "slurp"! It was never all that cute, but by now its presence in food reviews is so stale and predictable that it's become more annoying than the sound of slurping itself.

Re: “Why Oakland's Nyum Bai Is Poised for National Acclaim

Good read, I was too and as of for most Cambodia we had been victimize by fail governing. It's very sad to recall those dark age but as for me I am glad to know my history. And because most Cambodia whom has convey here to the U.S in the 80's some of those whom has survived has pass away with little history to pass on to their generation. As for me I don't remember much I was just as young as Yun. I was born in a muslim family in Cambodia, and growing up in the U.S has taught me much the difficulty that almost or maybe all Cambodian including my family endured, we has suffer great deal before we made it to America. So to see someone related to part of my history filled my heart with joy knowing she went to great deal to keep Cambodia culture alive. I will not promise but I will say this, with my children we will visit your businesses and try out our culture food that I have never taste it yet. And hopefully I can meet Khmer people who willing to smile back at me.

Re: “Tay Ho Is a Vietnamese Treasure in Oakland Chinatown

I love Tay Ho. It is my go to restaurant in Oakland. The food and the service are always top notch.

Re: “Lao Taé Brings Laotian Fare to Montclair Village

Yeah, well, we were motivated by this review to try the place.

- the spring rolls were quite good.

- the tea leaf salad was very good but not excellent. I have had better (Royal Ragoon, Burma Superstar, Teni East)

- The meat in the shaking beef dish was terribly tough and chewy. Thin slices of cheap beef poorly cooked.

- the tofu in the tofu green bean stir fry was a chewy sponge.

Not going back. You must have eaten in a different place or their fancy Laotian dishes are much better than their simple common dishes.

Re: “Lao Taé Brings Laotian Fare to Montclair Village

Nice review. Especially appreciate the comparisons to other Lao restaurants for depth and context. The reviews are getting stronger lately.

Re: “At The Bird, Fried Chicken Gets the Farm-to-Table Treatment

I can't believe the author of this review would actually tell people to avoid the best part of The Bird. The regular chicken sandwich is good but the spicy is truly a game changer. It is truly transcendental and is not to be missed. If you can't handle a spicy sandwich (and yes, it is spicy), then stick with the classic. But the spicy is truly sublime and is worth every bite of enjoyment.

Re: “Hooked on La Grana Fish

#Stephanie, the place in Salinas is called maganas meat market. This website does not allow you to place the tilde on the n (maganas). Enjoy...

Re: “Hooked on La Grana Fish

Im blessed to live right by this spot and let me tell you, yes it is magical lol. Google it on your maps it'll come out but it's on 50th Ave and San Leandro Boulevard in Oakland of course. The tostadas is my favorite item on the menu so far. The fish tacos are the best fish tacos I've had and I'm very picky with my fish tacos.
