Lunch Near U.C. Berkeley today
- Glencora Feb 10, 2007 08:07 AM
We'll be on campus near the south side and will have an hour and a half break for lunch. I guess Telegraph or Durant would be the closest area. A search says that Bongo Burger is good. Is there anything else close by? Top Dog in the rain is unappealing. My 13 year old probably wouldn't want Indian or Japanese. Can anyone think of anything else? Maybe Mexican? We could run down to Panini, but that might take too long. Also, is it true that the Faculty Club is open to the public? Is it open on Saturday?
Thanks for any help on a very short notice.
If you want mexican, I'd suggest Mario's La Fiesta on Telegraph, about 4-5 blocks south of campus, on the right hand side on the corner, walking south.
i prefer thai house on channing for thai, too bad Hua Hin closed that was better than most other spots on south side
spicy chicken at gomnaru is good.
mandarin house's menu has gotten much more extensive than when i went to school at cal and i've been trying out the new items.
julie's cafe on bancroft is a nice mix of sandwiches, asian dishes and mexican food.
I don't hear much about Shanghai Restaurant (2517 Durant Ave # D, upstairs) these days - it was remarkably good last year. I keep forgetting to go back and check it out. Don't forget the Sweetheart Cafe for a dessert drink (not as good as the original Oakland store on 9th and Harrison, but still worth trying)
