“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.

“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!!

It’s underground and I can’t even describe it but it’s real nice.” — Everyone Is Dirty
