Thread: Way OT: Popular Food Near Campus When You were a Student

  1. #31
    Oscar's at College and Bancroft, long gone, and the Kingfish for beer once a week. Brennan's on Fourth street off University on Sunday nights, when the sorority I hashed at didn't serve dinner.

    Same era. Would add Blondie's, Giant Burger, and the Soup Kitchen. Forget the name, but there was a Chinese place with good hot & sour soup near People's Park (roughly at Bowditch and Haste or Dwight).

    A friend claims he had Blondie's for dinner roughly every other night while in law school at Hastings. Decent hoof for mediocre slices. Tenderloin methadone clinics probably had better food.

    Not to go OT, but my wife and I are on vacation in upstate NY. We'd just arrived in Saranac Lake Village, parked in the quaint downtown area and saw a place called Bitters & Bones, which was highly recommended for their farm to table food and craft beer. Upon entering we were engaged by a pleasant barkeep and after sitting down at the bar heard a loud "Go Bears!" emanate from the kitchen (I'm wearing a Cal sweatshirt). The owner came out and explained that he was actually a UCLA alum but had always loved Berkeley much more than Westwood. Better food, more eclectic, etc. if any of you ever find yourself here, I'd highly recommend this place. Very impressive food, atmosphere, drinks and hospitality.

    After NYCGOB helicoptered 10 craft brews:

    Owner: Why are you drinking so much and so fast?

    NYCGOB: You would be doing this too if you had what I have.

    Owner: What do you have?

    NYCGOB: 75 cents.

    I ate at Fat Slice more than anywhere else - but mostly because a slice and a coke was $1.50 or something like that.
    Same here, chose Fat Slice over Blondies too.

    No, you got the "good buddy discount" for being a Bear.

    Steve's was quality. Berkel Berkel was the pits.

The popularity of the cart piqued my curiosity but it was never enough for me to give it a try.
    My memory is a bit hazy so to speak but was the food cart "Crazy Dave's Falafel?"
