Chicago style pizza in CA! If you're visiting from LA, ask them to half bake it. Then you can take it home and fully bake and eat!
The veggie spring rolls are unbelievably tasty. Healthy with subtle flavors and a great crunch. Complement with a tom yum soup for a light summer lunch.
You won't find better views of the bay than at Skates. Visit during happy hour for cocktails, oysters, and the most divine sunset ever.

900 Grayson. All you need to know about 900 Grayson is their devilishly delicious fried chicken and waffles. Okay, no, they have other star items on their menu like their shrimp and grits but what they are popularly known for is their Demon Lover. The fatty gravy that is slathered on top along with sweet syrup is out of this world. If you're not afraid of bold flavors, this is a must-order!… read more
