Joan’s Bakery Cafe has been opened for just a few months and is already in its last legs.  It’s clear from the offerings that its owners don’t have the capital to keep it running. My bet is that it will close soon, very soon. The space that Joan’s occupies has been having troubles for years.  […]

There are many positive things to say about Rubiano’s.  It’s located in a neighborhood that has long been desperate for good restaurants –  but which seems unable to keep them for long.  It’s very child friendly, one our visit there there were a couple of tables with toddlers and a guy with a friendly dog […]

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 […]

Let’s be honest here, if […]

Jan 2014 Update We returned to Padi tonight with a group of San Leandro friends, including a couple who’d spent months traveling around Indonesia after college (and who actually remembered how to speak some Indonesian!).  While the menu is still limited, this gave us an opportunity to try some dishes we’d missed the time before.

We came upon Shami last July, 2013, while trying to have dinner at the not-yet-open Padi.  It was a positive experience, though the only one who would want to rush back is my 11-yo daughter Mika, she positively LOVED the salad there. Shami’s menu is pretty limited, all they had when we visited were kebabs […]

I haven’t been to dinner to the new Taste of the Himalayas restaurant, which replaces CreAsian, but I did go to its Grand Opening which included a limited free buffet.  From it, I can say that I’m glad to welcome them to San Leandro. Taste of the Himalayas is a popular Nepali restaurant in Berkeley.  […]

Nation’s is a Bay Area restaurant chain offering burgers, fries, breakfast and pies. Mike and I have been eating at Nation’s ever since college – there was one near the UC Berkeley Campus, then we were within walking distance of another, when we lived in Richmond, and we found yet another one here in San […]
