I'm working at a new job in West Oakland, at 3rd and Adeline specifically, and I've been hitting the taco truck far too often. I'm wondering if anyone has any good lunch recommendations in the area. I'm close to Jack London, which is probably my best bet, but parking can be such a pain so I'd love ideas for places that aren't in Jack London... same for downtown Oakland. Can you think of any places that aren't in traffic congested areas and are easy to swing by and pick up lunch? And cheap is good too!
In a seperate question, when I do feel like venturing into downtown Oakland for lunch, where is your favorite place for a Vietnamese sandwich in Chinatown?
