Food options near the Trappist

What are the best options in that area of Old Oakland. Is B Restaurant any good? Don't want to go all the way to Jack London square, or up to Luka's

thanks.

  1. B is great, that's my default stop after the Trappist.

    Battambang, Shanghai, Spices!3, Legendary Palace, and Shan Dong are just a few blocks away.

      1. Tamarindo, upscale-ish Mexican, is next door and they'll let you order there and bring the food over. A bit pricey and above average but convenient. If you want a separate, stand alone dining experience, B might be the best options since very close.

        Chinatown is a block away. Lots of options there...New Gold Medal is a solid Cantonese place as is Chef Lau's, which has $6.50 specials if you order 3, free soup, fresh stuff.

          1. The Trappist has added three or four toasted panini to the menu. I had a Reuben-ish one and it was tasty.

            They've also added additional taps for a total of 30 (though I haven't seen them use the hand pump yet).
