    never seen masala cuisine open whenever i drove by.

    only soul food and fish & chip places come to mind
    -simpson (soul food) 6403 foothill 251-1299
    -soul's (soul food) 6403 international ave (soul food, excellent decor inside, security guard on site, parking in back)
    -holiday fish (fish & chip, soul food) 8217 international av. ($10 dinner takeouts are good value and excellent)
    -find out what's cooking 6638 bancroft ave. (if desperate come here, not recommended)
    -fish king (chicken, fish & chip) 6447C international ave. (excellent fish & chip, heartell chicken good too. hoody area. watch your back).
    -charlies palma's (old kwik way) international (pricey, waste of time, money).

    -for chinese, go to fruitvale. laurel district.

    -burgers: In & Out on hegenberger next to walmart.
    -tacos/mexican? some taco trucks on international,
    Recommend soul's, holiday, fish king, and in & out.

      That's a tuff one!

      Sparky Burgers at the bottom of Redwood road

      Jerry's Beefburgers on Mac Arthur Blvd.

      Are pretty darn good.

      Skyline Pizza half way up Keller.

      Never tried the pizza place...but it is there.

      How about that donut place at the top of 73rd where it hits Edwards Ave,does it do breakfast?

      Also I think there is a cafe at the top of 98th near Golf links,just past Bishop O Dowd.

      And then there is a grill at the old Chabot Golf course that was always edible.

      Love to hear your feedback.

      I will try and think of some more.

        The only places I've heard of near there are Old Weang Ping and Masala Cuisine. You might search for topics on Fruitvale and San Leandro.

        Old Weang Ping
        6217 MacArthur Blvd, Oakland, CA 94605

        Masala Cuisine
        7912 International Blvd, Oakland, CA 94621

          It is possible from a quick google search that you have discovered a true "culinary black hole" where no man or women has ever gone before. Please report back.
