ISO Michoacan places in Oakland

  • 2

I've read previous posts on this subject explaining that many immigrants in Oakland are from Michoacan, but none of them specify which restaurants are worth checking out - other than a place to buy tamales at the elusive La Michoacan in a home somwhere on 7th St..

Can anyone help me with suggestions.

  1. I don't think there are any places in Oakland that specifically say they serve Michoacan food. They're from Michoacan and they serve food.

    The "elusive" tamale place is actually not on 7th -- it's around the corner on ... Washington, I think. Whatever street intersects 7th half a block west of La Borinquena. It's a small Victorian row house with a sign on the garage door proclaming the tamales.

    1. Thanks for more specifics on the tamale place. It's very intriguing - I can't wait to check it out. When are they open?
