Fresh Eats 2010 (food lists)
I'm happy to say that the East Bay has a whole new slew of food spots that I can barely keep up with, so I am going to write up a list of places that I want to try this year: (Actual Cafe photo/yelp.com)
Actual Cafe (just around the corner from us!)
Lake Chalet Seafood Bar & Grill
Pepple's Donuts (supposedly opening a shop 5422 San Pablo ave. Oakland)
Most of this list above is inspired by the East Bay Express article from Fall '09 hailing Oakland as the "Brooklyn of the Bay Area."
The food list below is mostly inspired by friends.

Specific food items around the bay:
cupcakes from Cupkates (spotted in Rockridge, not in service)
lobster rolls from Sam's Chowder House (Hannah's idea)
porchetta sandwiches from Roli Roti (Jenn's idea)
chicken sandwich from Cafe Biere (Dudebro's idea)
tuna sliders from Sea Salt (Pinkbro's idea)
Spanish Table, this one has been around since 2001, but I had never really noticed it till 2009, after I returned from Spain. Now I know where to shop for the next tapas party.
Where do you want to eat in 2010?
