We have a lot of friends who rave about the restaurants in Oakland, but I swear we are just totally unlucky or something. We have found one or two places we love, a couple of places that are okay, and then there's stuff like tonight. We went to a Chinese place where we basically each had a few bites of our food and then asked for the check. We filled up on the white rice because the rest of the food was gross. (There's a problem when you can't tell the difference between the pork, chicken, fish, and fat.) When it all tastes kind of like fat ... no thanks.
But if you want to go to Oakland for good macaroni and cheese or fan-freaking-tastic burgers, that I can help you with.
