Please Help A Orange County Boy Lost in Oakland

I am in the Lakeshore District in Oakland for the next couple of weeks. I dont have a car. Can someone tell me the cool tasty restaurants?

Burgers? Adams looks good.


Where can I get Pho?

Sushi by Japanese owned places with Japanese sushi chefs?

Anything else that would be cool to eat?

I am on York St so its not far to walk.

Thanks in advance. Looking forward to hearing all the goodies in this area. looked like a lot of them!

    1. Hey OCB,
      I think there are supposed to be some good restaurants around Grand/Lakeshore, but I haven't been. You should be able to count on Arizmendi for good bread, pastries, although not the equal of Berkeley's Cheeseboard. There must be a bus that runs down Grand to Broadway/Telegraph that would open up new vistas, e.g. Korea town on Telegraph.

      1. I think there's a sushi place around there... Mijori? or something like that... but I've never been. I strongly second the suggestions of a bike and/or bus. Chinatown and International isn't too far (if you feel a few miles is walkable). I know there's also a vietnamese place along Grand, but definitely does not compare to anything in Westminister. There's also the Holy Land right by the post office, near the theater... any chowhounds tried this place?

        1. re: S U

          MIjori, while pretty good, is run by Koreans.

        2. Holy Land's great.

          Champa Garden's a few blocks from the lake.

          1. what is the best Pho place next to me. I probably could talk someone into giving me a ride. It will be worth it.
