Re: “Anula's Cafe

I moved from my office at the 14th & Franklin corner in downtown Oakland and I miss Anula's Cafe. Anula is from Sri Lanka and makes meat and vegetarian dishes in her home style. There are different specials each day, along with great sandwiches, coffee and Sri Lanka style chai. I drop by to see say "hi" and get something whenever I am in the neighborhood.

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: “Priya Indian Cuisine

Excellent recommendation EBX. I tried Dal Makhani and Palak Paneer today, they were both very good. I wish I had told them to make it hotter but I forgot.

As a Desi I can attest to the quality. More importantly they use good oils and probably use it only once, there is no need to explain this further most people will understand why.

I'll follow up when I try the Southern Indian food. Nice people too and I nicknamed the Owner(?) "Mr. Grumpy." In a nice way of course.

Re: “Prima

A great place for great food and wine. The setting is warm and friendly, as is the staff. They also have an joining wine shop that has a wonderful selection.
I feel that everyone at Prima's is dedicated to making sure my evening is perfect. I've been eating here for years and have never been disappointed.

Re: “Millennium Restaurant

I loved the restaurant when it was on McAllister before it moved to Geary @ Jones, and I loved it on Geary too. Over the years there have been many great waiters and personable staff although after a best friend moved away I found myself less often at the restaurant. Now though, now that Millennium has moved to my hometown, I'm generating a new habit again.

Re: “Pucquio

Delicious, innovative, and healthy with many fish as well as crudo dishes!
Great tangy marinades and light sauce garnishes. The 5 course New Years Eve dinner was a hit!
Carlos is a very talented chef.

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."
