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: “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: “Berkeley Social Club Is a Different Kind of Korean Restaurant

BTW, Pican's "Creole Spiced Bacon" is dead easy to make; I do it all the time at home. Didn't even need a recipe to figure that one out, LOL. We prefer it with a modest amt of brown sugar, we like our spicy bacon to taste balanced between sweet/salt and less like candied jerky.

Re: “Annapurna in Old Oakland Is a New Go-To Spot for 'Everyday' Nepalese-Indian

Just visited Annapurna. Lovely decor, not as good as Hamro Aangan/Albany. The Khashi Ko Masu (goat wet curry) at Annapurna is not as good as at Aangan--lacks complexity and depth. No grilled tomato, btw. The fried fish is also better at Aangan, with a lighter batter and not overcooked. The cauliflower/potato curry was indifferent, too. You're right about the naan and lamb mo-mo's, however--both were outstanding at Annapurna.

Re: “East Bay Breakfast Spots that Don't Involve Waiting in Long Lines

Interesting that you didn't find a line at Jim's on a weekend? We went last year and there was a good-sized line even at 11a. The line moves fast, tho; those waitresses are pros!

Re: “Belotti Ristorante Serves the Best Pasta in Oakland

AGREE 100% - We had lunch 8/03 and it was likely the best food we'd had in over a year (including Farmhouse Inn, Auberge du Soleil, and Passionfish). Lunchtime Wed was empty and the waitress delightfully enthusiastic. By far the best Italian restaurant in Northern CA right now, even surpasses Perbacco.

Re: “Mama's Royal Cafe Is for Sale

Love Mama's grits and hash, but man that place needs a serious update. Getting very tired and worn in a not-good way.
