Re: “Soba Ichi Serves Impressive Handmade Soba Noodles — but the Setting Complicates Things

I loved FuseBox, and while it certainly wasn't JackInTheBox price wise, you could put together a tasty meal that left you satisfied without breaking the bank. I thought the review above was honest, thoughtful, and dealt with all the aspects involved, including how much work and thought goes into the noodles. However, after spending over $100 for three for lunch, I left appreciating the subtlety and goodness of the dishes, and was glad I experienced it, but all three of us decided it was not worth the wait and the cost, especially with so many other amazing choices in the East Bay alone. We won't be back.

Re: “Ippudo's Legendary Ramen Hits Berkeley

Review pretty spot on. Ramen good but not great. Buns tasty but way overpriced, as was everything. Add in Berkeleys overpriced street parking and with tax and tip I wound up paying almost $35 for a simple lunch of ramen ... and thats without the absurd $2 charge for the usually included egg. Not worth the wait or the money

Re: “Hawker Fare Aims to Go Out With a Bang

The Trumpization of America marches on with money and homogenization and privilege as the themes. Keep 'em out if they're different. Keep out their amazing talents that truly made America great. More white bread please. Make American White again. And I'm a white baby boomer who brags about Oaktown and our amazing diversity of people and food. Sad, Boring. Tears.

Re: “In East Oakland, a Popular Banh Mi Shop and Taqueria Closes

Wow. What a loss. I would trade one of the "high end gourmet places" for this any day ... Tony was a true delight and so was his food. One of the high points of the East Bay (Oakland in particular) is being able to spend less than $10 for lunch and getting not just something "good" ... but something truly special and truly unique. Whether it's Mongolian or Viet-Mex fusion doesn't matter ... what matters is great, affordable food made by great people. Let's hope Tony gets his dream ... and hopefully you'll let us know when he does!
