Ten-minute stopover in Berkeley -- where should I eat?

Just kidding. It's actually three weeks, but I thought I might need to catch your attention among all the visitor posts.

Well, this is another one, though we've been visiting for several weeks a year for the past twenty years, and I'm not asking you to do my work for me.

Our last visit was in July 2006, and I've been working my way back through the posts since then. I'm still only back to about March, so forgive me if I'm posting prematurely. Possibilities so far include Wood Tavern, Jayakarta (though the Chron review implied Malaysian sugar overdose, which I can do without), Platano, Riva Cucina, Ici, Vanessa's, Angeline's. I am undecided about Bui, which sounds like Saigon City (which I liked) with higher prices and worse service. Anyone want to stick up for it?

And if anyone wants to chime in with some more alternatives (see, this is just another visitor post), I would appreciate it. We do have piles of old favourites to go back to.

We're going to try to spend a little more time than usual on the other side of the Bay, also, and I don't have anything new written down for SF so far. But there are more places there that we haven't gotten to ever, plus some which deserve a second visit (e.g. Incanto, which I wasn't thrilled with, though we had a party of nine with too many small children last time...). --PR
