I can’t say it enough. Blue bottle coffee is incredible. There is an excellent one in SF at the ferry building, but if you are around downtown Oakland, check out the actual warehouse shop they have on Webster and third.

Breakfast Panino on Croissant at Cafe Trieste (Oakland, CA)

croiss1

Staying the Piedmont Ave. course: this is a scrumptious lil’ bite I’ve made from Cafe Trieste’s breakfast menu a buncha times. Trieste’s a local chain that can seem off-putting at first, but actually makes decent food at decent prices if you work with their options. Their pizza and coffee drinks are generally correct. LOVE the overnight-brewed ice coffee. Anyway, for their croissant and English muffin breakfast sandwiches they charge a slightly different (relatively low) price for any combo of eggs, meat, onions, tomato, etc. My version comes to six bucks. Tasty!

croiss2

Bacon and scrambled eggs with fresh tomato and red onion. The croissant gets pressed on the grill, caramelizing the butter, crisping the flaky edges, drawing the flavor out. Class. No extra butter, cheese, or sauces needed. Just get your fat from the bacon and the croissant, it’s there waiting!

croiss3

Comes with pepperoncini and pickle on the side.

Salami & Egg on Challah Bun, Commonwealth (Oakland, CA)

sandwichsermon:

SALAM4

Commonwealth Cafe & Pub is this really cute little corner spot on Telegraph & 29th. They opened last year and have really good sandwiches, salads, soup, coffee, beer, imported sodas, and some crazily delicious bags of pork rinds!

SALAM3

Sometimes places will offer a sandwich of cured or otherwise salted meat with an egg or egg salad. The version of this combo at Commonwealth is simple, clever and unique: the bun is eggy and untoasted, the egg is soft-boiled, the salami is dry and mildly peppered, the arugula is tasty and fresh, and, perhaps most importantly, the onion chutney is really sweet and cold.

SALAM2

Yummy snack!

Bakesale Betty - Fried Chicken Sandwich

eliu:

location: Bakesale Betty (Oakland, CA)

5098 Telegraph Ave
OaklandCA 94609

With over 2000 reviews on yelp, I had to try this place and their famous fried chicken sandwich! They supposedly have long lines much of the time, but coming in during spring break, we barely had to wait at all.

Their fried chicken sandwich came with pretty large pieces of chicken, bread and a kind of pickled slaw. We got the sandwiches to go and ate back home.

It may be because we got it to go or it may just be a quality of their chicken, but it was not super crisp all over; some areas were soggy and wet. The breading of the chicken fell away in some areas and was not completely connected to the meat. I really enjoyed the parts that were crisp and crunchy (mostly on the edges). The chicken was pretty tender throughout but could have been juicier.

The bread soaked up some juices and became soft but retained a bit of a bite. The slaw was slightly sour/tart and was crisp and fresh along with the meat, which on its own might be a little heavy since it is such a large piece.

Overall, it is a pretty tasty and filling meal, but I would love if the chicken were crisper and juicier.

taste: 7.5/10

overall quality: 7.5/10

desire to return: 7/10

Croque Monsieur, Mama’s Royal Cafe (Oakland, CA)

sandwichsermon:

CROQ1

Our first open-face sandwich post! It’s the rich and sensuous croque monsieur (as opposed to ‘madame’ which is where you serve it with an egg on top).

CROQ2

Always been a fan of the croque monsieur at Mama’s Royal. It’s ham with mustard and mayo on a long slice of rustic bread. There’s melted gruyere on top, and a parsley garnish. I asked for an extra vegetable on there and the waiter suggested asparagus (like the one at Tartine Bakery in SF, which is fantastic).

CROQ3

I’ve got a habit of ordering it every time I go. The sandwiches at Mama’s royal can be nice, but none have stood out quite like this one. Never ever not very flavorful!

BBQ Pork Bánh mì, Cam Huong Vietnamese (Oakland, CA)

sandwichsermon:

BBQ PORK1

BBQ pork banh-mi for $2.50 on International! Cam Huong is awesome. They’re also located at 10th & Webster downtown. Big menu of cheap sandwiches at both locations, and great pork and chicken options for the price. I’ve yet to try many of the other other, crazier options, but the pork sammies rocked.

Pulled Pork on Toasted Roll, Sparky’s (Oakland, CA)

sandwichsermon:

PULLPORK1

My second trip to Sparky’s called for their pulled pork. Your famous broiled chicken’ll come next, Sparky’s, I promise.

PULLPORK2

Theirs is a notably juicy, wet pulled pork, with a focus on sweetness. Just solid. Comes served over cucumber slices and mayo on a toasted roll. It’s up to you to add hot sauce, and their slaw of cabbage, red onion, parsley, and jalapeno.

PULLPORK3

$8.50, plus tax puts it over $9. Quality though.
