Hi, folks. I am soon to be moving (yeah!) to the area south/east of Lake Merritt called EastLake or New Saigon. A while back I posted for general East Bay recommendations and got a great response, but now I'm wondering if anyone can point me more specifically to some good stuff in my new 'hood. Ruth Lafler said some chowhounds had been exploring that area, but I haven't seen any postings. Any body got any ideas? I'll test 'em out and report back.
Though I'm sad to be leaving the many taco trucks of Fruitvale, I'm looking forward to beefing up the bahn mi portion of my diet. I also want to try Hong Kong at 9th and International--we're just a few blocks closer to the Lake from there.
Thanks in advance!
