Between SF and Hayward....
Gotta do a friend a favor and drive out to Hayward tomorrow. Any must-eats for a City girl who doesn't get to East Bay much? Otherwise I'll probably end up grabbing a burger at Val's. I'd much rather get a great bowl of soup noodles, a tasty falafel, or some really great Korean food (spicy cold noodles, anywhere?)
Val's is closed on Sun. I don't have anything to recommend in Hayward. I like QQ Noodle in Fremont for beef noodle soup or tomato egg noodle or tons of eats in Union City on Decoto/Alvarado Niles Blvd.
If it's spicy cold noodles you crave, stop in Oakland at Pyung Chang Tofu House for naeng myun.

In Hayward is Buon Apetito on A st, with good Italian, my fav is the Oso Buco made with lamb shank over polenta.
In San Leandro is Vo's on Parrot, have had lots of great stuff .
Also in Hayward is Buffalo Bills if you like beer, and they make a good salad. But take a miss on the Sushi Buffet across the street, not good.
