My co-worker mentioned Room 389, a bar, serves Cameroon (West Central Africa) food on Tues evenings. Anyone try it?
389 Grand Ave, Oakland
Happy Hr 4-8pm daily
I went last night. Food was pretty good, Unfortunately, I was not too sure what I was eating; maybe yam, black-eyed peas and fried plantain? I got the veggie plate and overall- it was tasty, nicely spiced and the hot sauce was killer. Be sure to ask for it.
The bar has a good selection of beers, however, by 8:30, the place was getting quite lively. The music is played a loud volume, so if you 're going with a friend to have a conversation, you may want to consider taking the food to go. Unless you can handle talking over loud music. There is a decent little outside part, but this is where the smokers hang out.
I would definitely go again to get the food, it was a nice casual way to try this cuisine.
