Re: “Alameda's Boichik Bagels is a Game-Changer

Yay, Emily! Your hard work's paid off - and no surprise - people noticed! The boichick bagel is small but mighty, just like you. Chewy and malty and with that crust you only get from boiling them first, I'll sign up when the CSB gets off the ground.

Beauty's is much better than H&H ever was. We're super lucky to have it.

That's right: Nizza la Bella. Please correct it.

Sad news. I liked this spot.

Nizza la Bella, not (Belle).

Very disappointing. Liked going there--very good beer and very few, if any, hipsters

Re: “Vegan Donut Gelato Delivers Plant-Based Comforts

Just went there today, awesome place, wish it was closer to where I live. They should expand these throughout the bay area. I love that it's just a regular donut shop, not a bunch of fancy artsy stuff, just regular donuts. And to the commentor above all I can say is it's just a donut shop, dude, no reason to feel threatened by it.

Re: “Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks to Open in Berkeley with Giant Slabs of Fried Chicken

Lo Ba Png. Not Lou ru fan. More Taiwanese authenticity if calling it by its Taiwanese name and not Mandarin Chinese one.

Eat all the vegan donuts and gelato you need to make yourself feel more righteous. It's the sugar that produces the disease-promoting metabolic syndrome. Heart attack potential is identical vegan or non-vegan.

Re: “Catered To You's Fish Sandwich Focus of New Short Film

I first heard about Catered To You when it was featured in the East Bay Express and my mouth watered. Seeing the short film made me empathize even more with Ms. Teena's plight. I hope her business can remain in Oakland, at least until I can get over there to check out her fish sandwich!

Re: “Original Pattern Brewing Nears Its Debut in the Jack London Area

I can't wait to try the beers from this place! Ryan Frank has been a serious, if underrated, force in the Bay Area brewing scene for some time now. I expect his thoughtful approach and focus on quality will really shine through in the beers. Congrats, and this is a welcome addition to the blooming Oakland beer scene.

Re: “Chick’n Rice Brings Americanized Thai Street Food to Downtown Berkeley

C'mon breau!!! Your concept comes from Portland (Nong's Khao Man Gai)...not from Thailand. Sack up boy. You respond full frontal in this thread, and I'll come pay and eat at your place. Your spread looks good. If not, I'll just be spreading that you're a fake...on Yelp. That girl in Portland who actually started this fad deserves the credit.

Re: “Chick’n Rice Brings Americanized Thai Street Food to Downtown Berkeley

"Our goal was to create something American fitting," the food will be bland? Americans, especially in the Bay Area, can handle authentic ethnic foods. This isn't the 1950's anymore. C'mon...khao mun gai is not spicy.

Re: “Alice Waters Releases Long-Awaited Memoir

On page 254 Alice mistakenly listed me (Bob Waks) as one of the founders of the Cheeseboard Collective I was hired there by Elizabeth & Sahag Avedisian in 1968, 1 year after it opened, & in 1971 it was sold to the staff and officially became a worker owned collective with all members receiving equal pay & participating in the stores' management. I contacted Alice today (9/7/17) & she will be issuing a retraction to rectify this innocent memory lapse.

I never knew people still have powers and make things happen this way. My name is Riena Diego my Husband Alexandra left me for another girl for three months ever since then my life have been filled with pains sorrow and heart break because he was my first love, A friend of mine Stephanie told me she saw some testimonies of this Great Prophet Akeem Spell Temple that he can bring back my lover within some few days, I laugh it out and said i am not interested but because of the love my friend had for me, She consulted the great priest on my behalf and to my greatest surprise after three days my Husband called me for the very first time after three months that he is missing me and that he is so sorry for everything he made me pass through. I still cant believe it, Because it's highly unbelievable it just too real to be real. Thank you Prophet Akeem for bringing back my Husband and also to my lovely friend who interceded on my behalf, For anyone who might need the help of this great priest you can contact the great Herbalist and a spell caster on, For more info view his Website:
