Rob.Laur.,Chemchef,Morton, JT et al: Berkeley-Five Take Away Lunches?

opinionatedchef | Mar 16, 200801:15 PM

We are Boston CHs, in the middle of our annual March Cal. vaca.This Fri. we will be having lunch at Sea Salt and then dashing around Berkeley to pick up take way lunches for our week in the eblouissante hinterlands of Elk. Now, try to be understanding; i KNOW dimsum is not great for reheating and neither are a lot of things. Given that, we will be staying in an inn that serves bkfst and dinner but no lunch and we do not like to spend time away from that fabulous view, driving away to find a mediocre lunch. The inn's kitchen lets us use their microwave and oven and we store our foods in their walk-in. So we usually take up things from whole foods, yank sing dim sum , pastor burritos from san jose on mission,and lunches from gregoire. Yes, this takes alot of planning and running around. And yes, I am food obsessive(How can you tell?).

Since youall are so familiar w/ berkeley restnts and their proximity to each other,would you offer your suggested list of restnts and/or specific dishes for 4 or 5 lunches- that we could pick up after our sea salt lunch, (which will include their wonderful chowder and their eel sdwch)? We need to limit this take out list to berkeley because we don't want to add to this already-time consuming task.
Some of the items i'm thinking that could handle the delayed eating and/or reheating are:
pastor burritos(just because that is our fav type), hamburgers, shish kabob and falafel-type sandwiches,fried chicken, asian dishes[maybe you'd say 'horrors' but i also love cold leftover asian food(though not pho!)].

I really appreciate any time you have to share your suggestions. Thank you.
