Berkeley Bowl - Bah, humbug

rworange | Dec 22, 200508:51 PM     6

This is the second time I've gone to the Berkeley Bowl in a downpour similar to a monsoon and it seems that fewer people show up at those times. A parking place opened up in front, the aisles were almost empty ... at least spacious ... for this time of year. The lines were only two deep, if that.

Just some good food notes. The huge black and green olives are beyond delicous. Look for the largest olives on the side of the olive bar near the dairy section, not the wine section. They are not flavored, just thick meaty olivey goodness.

There is generally a very nice olive selection there.

My favorite grapefruit is back. They are called Cocktail grapefruit and they are mainly green with spots of yellow. They are very clean tasting.

There are gold kiwi. Very pretty chartruese yellow interiour and a sweeter fruit than the green kiwi.

Those Fish Eye wines are nice table wines as is the Crane Lake Sangiovanese (sp).

All of this goodnes was temporarily derailed by a check ont of the unpleasant kind.
