While my wife works in Oakland, it's a rare ocasion that I ever cross the Bay unless visiting friends in Alameda. We'll both be near West Oakland BART station for a work meeting tomorrow however. I'd like to take advantage of the situation and explore some foods that are unique to the East Bay and either not done well or at all in San Francisco. Don't want to venture too far unless there's some absolutely recommended destination. Willing to travel within approx. 10-15 mins by Uber from West Oakland Station. Nothing fancy or high end; ideally ethnic eats - Asian from any country and region, Middle Eastern, Spanish, etc. If there's a great mid-range (ie. $40-50 pp max) dinner restaurant that comes highly recommended, I'd be willing to shift gears however and do creative Cal-cusine but I'm not looking for a substitute for the kind of restaurants that are popular in the city. That said, I'd be persuaded even more if craft cocktails are on the menu. I haven't eaten in a proper Oakland restaurant (not including food trucks) since Wood Tavern nearly 3 years ago! So to sum it up, anything goes really... I just want something really GREAT and different within roughly 15 mins. of West Oakland tomorrow night and it can be a really no-frills divey place or a really nice bistro type of place; just so long as the food is great and interesting! Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
