Intermezzo. Delicious sandwiches and salads; not too expensive (less than $5 for a very filling sandwich). Great vegetarian options.
Favorite Dish: The Vegetarian - a sandwich stuffed with sprouts, cream cheese, guacamole, tomatoes, and other veggies and served with a slice of pineapple.

Favorite former haunt, no longer in existence--Narsai's in the Kensington hills. You will be thrilled with the Pasand restaurant located
on Shattuck Avenue. Authentic Indian curry, chapatti, mango chutney to die for. After hours check out Mr. E's Jazz Club which has relocated to Alameda UPDATE: Mr. E's new location, 2203 Mariner's Square Loop, Alameda(go thru the Alameda Tube)...Latin jazz fusion and Salsa sounds weekends. Mr. E is Pete Escovedo, the lovely Sheila Escovedo's proud papá, and a veteran Salsa/Latin Jazz fusion giant in his own right.
Atmosphere conducive to clever reparte. Engaging waiters, lovely hostesses and handsome maitre d'. Fragrant kitchen, aromatic delights. Friendly and efficient service.
Favorite Dish: Everything, be adventuresome try the exotic, if only once. Like forbidden fruit, if you've tasted it, you'll be tempted again.

2203 Mariners' Square Loop(take the Alameda Tube)
won Thai on University. Good family, Thai food. Mark the owner remembers customers by name after one or two visits. The sauces are excellent. Not fancy, crowded or expensive.
Mark hadn't seen a customer is 5 years and he remembered his name and what he loved to eat. A great place to take kids. The ambience doesn't seem foreign and my son gets a special plate and cup each visit.
Favorite Dish: Every curry is fabulous, as is the Hana Man Klung Foon (sp). The spinach leaf appetizer is great.
Address: On University between McGee and SacramentoAdd to your Trip Planner

This burger joint has been around for decades. It is about as healthy and nutritious as you would expect from a big burger and malt. And just as delicious.
This café is one of the latest spots open in Berkeley (open to 2am). This is a nice place to hang if you don’t feel like going to sleep just yet.
Some of the cool places to grab a beer include Jupiter (also a pizza place), Becketts (an Irish pub), Triple Rock microbrewery, and Blakes on Telegraph.
