Casa Latina Bakery

“Pretty unassuming place that doubles as a bakery. They make their own tortillas, have a long breakfast menu and don’t shy on the spice. Order the tacos dorados, they grill mold 2 homemade tortillas together like a Venn diagram so that they make one long taco shell, it reminds of the long forgotten Taco Bell Grande.” — FAN

Vik’s Chaat Corner

“They’ve been going strong for 25+ years since it was a guy at a table in an Indian grocery store serving pani puris. It stopped being a well-kept secret years ago, but the food is still as delicious as ever. Get the Chole Bhatura – a giant sphere of puffy floppy deep fried goodness!”  —  The Seshen

Blind Tiger

“Blind Tiger! The Happy Hour Oysters are it. Sitting in the back seat of the van on tour- I’m dreaming about those oysters and wishing i was back in Oakland!! I love the road but living on pizza, tacos, and cup o noodles is nothing compared to those oysters. The ambiance is so pretty too. It’s underground and I can’t even describe it but it’s real nice.”  —  Everyone Is Dirty
