Since my sister Victoria and I have been staying at a hotel in Oakland to keep our sister Angela company and provide support while she takes her exam, I haven’t had a chance to write up a post for today. Spotty wifi and no laptop means almost electronic free. So I’m posting my weekly finds early this week.
While we were in Oakland, Victoria and I decided that we might as well find the best eats around us.
Oakland is just across the bridge from SF. But we rarely ever head in that direction. Sometimes, I don’t feel the traffic across the Bay Bridge is worth it.
One of the places we tried is the Cook and the Farmer. The name itself caught my attention.
We tried the Oakland’s Own Po Boy, crispy fried oysters with creamy coleslaw in a soft Acme bun; their soup of the day, Summer Squash Soup with Tomato and Basil; and their fresh lemonade.
