New job in downtown Oakland, looking for lunch places

stuckinschool | Oct 4, 2007 05:54 PM

that's right, i managed to unstick myself from the powerful adhesive that is graduate school and went and got myself a "real job".

turns out that job is in oakland, a place i know nothing about, and have only visited previously to use the airport; oh, and one purposefully forgotten raiders-steelers game :(

i work at 20th and harrison, have limited time for lunch and will be on foot, but am willing to spend my time walking to a great place and back for worthwhile takeout to eat at my desk!

so far i've eaten at the whole foods, a few sandwich places across the street and golden lotus (veggie vietnamese). these are the places on my short list to try out:

shanghai restaurant
ba vo
pho 84
phnom penh house
spices 3
tamarindo antojitos

what am i missing? and what should i order/avoid there?

thanks in advance!!
