  Habit Burger is a newish  chain of “upscale” fast food burger joints that is trying to spread throughout the Bay Area.  One may be opening in San Leandro in a year or two, a fact that Mayor Stephen Cassidy considers a major accomplishment of his administration (I kid you not!).  We were driving by Walnut […]

Updated 2016: We returned to the Palm’s Buffet in 2016 and found the prices higher (or rather, fewer good deals) and the food more tired. — Last August, 2013, we stayed at the Palm’s Place in Vegas, and had the opportunity to eat at the Bistro Buffet thrice.  We hit it for brunch, lunch and […]

You get what you pay for.  At Li Do, that’s a lot of bread and very little meat in your Vietnamese sandwiches. It’s been a while since we got there, so I don’t quite recall what we got.  I think one of us had the grilled pork and the other the BBQ pork sandwiches ($3.50). […]

UPDATE May 2014: Looney’s has been sold.  The new owner will open a Mexican/American restaurant. We had returned to Looney’s back in February and had a pretty good dinner. I liked my tri-tip quite a bit, Mike was enthused about his ribs, but they were good enough, and Camila was happy with her French bread […]

A’s Cafe opened where Blossom and several other Chinese restaurants used to be.  It’s still a Chinese restaurant for lunch (I think it’s closed for dinner), but they now serve American breakfast.  That’s what we went for a few weeks ago.  My family left satisfied, I was less than impressed. Let’s be honest here, if […]
