i'm visiting alameda for a spell and would like your recommendations. i'm looking for chinese, mexican, japanese and italian options. (i also happen to be a vegan, but don't let that stifle your creativity. i'm with a true carnivore!) i did search the boards, but the most recent info i found was from 2002.
we've already been to francesco's (of course), juanita's (i don't like it), ole's, tilly's, angel fish, la pinata, jim's coffee shop. we are planning to go to hangar one at some point.
