Berkeley / Oaklandreccomendations under 15$ each pls

Gileas | Sep 10, 200207:27 AM     45

I had to move to East Bay as SF was too $ - after 15 years there *weeps openly*

As a result I can no longer drive 20mins to get a great plate of food, from any culture, for 10$ or less. Everyone around me keeps reccomending places that either 1) are bad or 2) are really expensive, or 3) both.

I am used to paying 8-15$ each to get amazing food.
I like pretty much all Asian foods (esp Thai and Vietnamese, but not-soakingly greasy Chinese is nice, too) Mexican, Italian, non-chain fastfood (little indi greasy spoons like Arts on Irving in SF) and "american comfort food" like meatloaf, mashed potatoes, etc.
But I eat anything, pretty much.

And I cant find it in Berkeley, because I dont know anyplace, everything seems centered downtown where there is NO PARKING (worse than SF by 10x if you can imagine that) and everything is expensive and the staff is rude.

Please help me with some reccomendations. Please.
Thanks,
Gileas
