Help -- good lunch spot in Alameda?

foodiesf Feb 13, 2008 02:22 PM

I'm going to be in Alameda tomorrow, and I'd love some recommendations on where to take my guests for lunch. I've been to La Pinata, Acapulco, and Sushi House and a few other places. But surely there's something more interesting and delicious for lunch in Alamdeda. All suggestions and recommendations are welcome! Thanks.

          Speisekammer is awesome! Great beer and tasty food. The potato pancakes with apple sauce were good, as well as the grilled pork chop.

          How about Asena? It's Turkish-Influenced Mediterranean, which makes it a little more "interesting." I haven't been there for a while, but it's always been good (not fabulous, but good).

            A second for Asena. I've had lunch there many times - not in several years, but it was always good, as you say.

              Thank you all. Speisekammer looks very interesting -- too bad it's not open for lunch on Thursdays! Anyway, I'm going to suggest both Asena and Pappo to my friends...and I'll report back.

                Pappo was excellent! We all really enjoyed it. I had a Niman Ranch skirt steak salad, which was outstanding. Their house-baked rolls were delicious, too. Thanks for the recommendation, foodeye.
