A few things you want in your mouth in one of Oakland's hottest neighborhoods.
Hit it up on Sunday before the market for shihan phool
Great pizza, approachable wine list. Good luck getting in.
This is no hoity-toity gourmet shop; it's as down-to-earth as it gets. Nab yourself some of their pleasantly spicy tomato soup with a grilled cheese. Pure comfort food.
The kouign amann is perhaps the best pastry ever made by anyone anywhere. Pick them up at the Temescal Farmers Market.
Mad good mac and cheese. Start with the classic, and explore other flavors from there.
Just one of the many Korean joints in Temescal. Theresa, the owner, is delightfully sweet.
The "naughty cream" filling is luscious yet light, not gloppy.
They're supposed to be Montreal-style, but really sort of a Montreal-NY hybrid. The whitefish spread is delish.
Fish tacos. That is all. Well, ok, and lime agua fresca. Weekly at the Temescal Farmers Market.
Delicious, fresh, bright Indian flavors from a Top Chef contestant. The sev puri is to die for. Beverages also a highlight, like the salted lemonade with cumin and mint.
