Re: “Yuzu Ramen & Broffee Goes Deep To the Bone

$17 for a bowl of noodles? Arsonists need to stop burning down those new condo developments so these ramen places can have customers.

Re: “An Ideal Lunch Break at Emeryville's Paradita

Sorry, but are you certain Paradita offers beef heart anticuchos? We were there 6/16 and the ONLY anticuchos offered on the menu signboard were chicken, shrimp, and pork belly. We were very disappointed!

Re: “Restaurant Shuffle on Broadway in Oakland

Is Hayward becoming the new Oakland? Not sure of a rent comparison, but there are certainly empty storefronts on the main drag there which could be occupied by restaurants feeling a squeeze from the high rents of downtown and uptown Oakland. We recently had a fun meal with friends at Buffalo Bills Brewery in downtown Hayward (1082 B Street), not to mention enjoyed their brews and took home a six pack of high octane IPA.

Re: “Restaurant Shuffle on Broadway in Oakland

Yep. That new minimum wage has done wonders for the restaurant business. It is booming now, as old places go out of business and new ones try to make it and fail. I've seen prices rise, staff cut, and service deteriorate, but the remaining few workers get great wages.

Re: “Degrees Plato Serves Beer Without Borders in Oakland's Laurel Neighborhood

We are thrilled to have Degrees Plato in the neighborhood. The friendly helpful service service at tasty food and delicious beers on tap. Definitely a go to spot for us.

Re: “Neptune's Brings Farm-to-Table Credentials to Alameda

Sounds really good but when did breakfast pricing ascend to dinner prices? Not family friendly to average folks or to retirees for that matter. Love trying new restaurants but find ourselves staying home more and more.

Re: “After Anheuser-Busch Buyout Of Wicked Weed, Is It Time To Retire The Term 'Craft Beer'?

I despise the Bay Area's "hoppier than thou" approach to beer, but even more annoyed when something I love is bought by InBev - Goose Island's purchase in 2011 broke my heart.

Re: “Oakland's Daol Tofu Offers Variety And Comfort By Way Of Korea

The seafood tofu stew was better at Casserole House, and is also superior at Bowl'd BBQ. We judged Daol's to be equal but not better than Gangnam Tofu. Daol's seafood pancake is too fluffy and bland; it actually is better held overnight for the flavors to blend.

Re: “At Uptown's Xolo, a Menu Long on Good Intentions Falls Short on Execution

I think the hongos (mushroom) burrito is the best thing they have. Many a place I've eaten at in MX serve mushrooms. Not so much the taquerias in the US...Try it, you'll like it...

Re: “Don't Be An Ass On Cinco De Mayo. Eat, Drink, And Resist With 'Dining For Justice.'

In the Grand Lake neighborhood, Grand Lake Kitchen will have a special cocktail list and will donate $2 for each one purchased. At Lin Jia Asian Kitchen, they'll donate $2 when you purchase any of their special menu items and the owner will also match that amount.
