Berkeley Bowl how-to/Elmwood eats

heidipie | Jun 5, 200306:30 PM     20

We're buying a house in Berkeley's Elmwood district! Very exciting. Can't wait to make the Berkeley Bowl our regular food shopping location, but I'm a little intimidated as well. I've only been there a couple of times, and it's kind of enormous and crowded. What times of day are acceptable for going there? Is there any category of thing they have that I'd be better off getting somewhere else? I have the impression that they have great variety and prices on produce, and good meats/fish, but I don't know about their bulk or their boxed goods or cheeses or beers etc.

And what about the food on that College and Ashby strip? We had tuna melts and malteds at Ollie's after our inspection today, which was great fun, and the other night we went to Shen Nua (sp?) which was unimpressive. Also I know about Zax and the falafel place. Other tips?

Also, if any of you are now going to be my neighbors I'd love to know and invite you over to our housewarming party, whenever that happens...
