The other night I took my daughter to the Katy Perry concert in San Jose. While waiting for Katy to come on stage I chatted with another parent (from Pleasanton) about good restaurants in Oakland and Berkeley.

Eating real in Oakland

21 Sep

Today, we went to Oakland’s annual Eat Real Festival in Jack London Square. After quickly surveying the food options, I first had a delicious Carnitas Taco from Cholita Linda – really good Tortilla, tasty Pork.

After the taco I was tempted to try a Burrito from the Bacon Bacon food truck. Instead, I ate an absolutely delicious Poutine from The Whole Beast. I loved french fries smothered in gravy topped with Smoked Lamb.

The final course consisted of a very nice Pulled Pork sandwich from the Prickly Pig. Their BBQ sauce is definitely worth trying.

While walking back to the car I bought some jars of hot and delicious Kimchi from Sinto Gourmet and had  a cup of Ethiopian Blue Nile coffee from Highwire Coffee.
