Heading down to Hayward
An early dinner for my friends as we're headed to Chabot College Saturday for a fabulous hula show.
Mama Lupe's in San Leandro or ??? Ray's Sushi is closed which was another recommendation.
I'm coming from Oakland and El Huarache is a usual stop for me. No Chinese thanks.
Sorry this response is so late. From what I understand, Ray's didn't close -- its under new management. The prior management has moved on to Tomodachi Sushi Bistro by Southland, on Hesperian and Winton. The one meal I had there a few weeks ago (weekend lunch), quality is good. Best around, because there really isn't a whole lot to choose from in the area if you're looking for good sushi. They have a large menu, from sea bream carpaccio, to squid kara-age, to herb spiced baby lamb rib, to conch butter yaki, to robata yaki like sunagimo and beef tan, shabu shabu, zaru and udon just to name a few of the items.
