Oakland: Quick Bite
My favorite place to go for lunch when I feel like treating myself after a hard morning of work is Quick Bite. It's a tiny hole in the wall, so if you blink, you might walk past it:
Besides a counter and a handful of tables, there's really not much inside:
Check out the menu posted on the wall and make your selection. Make sure you have cash though, if you pay with credit there's a transaction fee.
My go-to at Quick Bite is the popcorn chicken:
The chicken is...actual chicken (surprise, surprise) and the pieces are decently sized. You get to choose one side. The seasoned fries are always a good choice.
I've also tried the Fast Eddie fish sandwich:
Went with the macaroni salad that time. It was good, but a bit too heavy on the mayo for even me.
The fish sandwich wasn't anything crazy, but it sure was tasty:
Quick Bite hasn't seen the last of me yet, that's for sure. I still have to try the fried okra, fried zucchini, and potato salad. So many sides, so little time...
