Belly – Oakland, CA

I think my favorite thing by far with traveling and having a significant other that lives half of the year in another state is that I get to try so much food. I literally spend what seems like hours looking up places to go or things to cook. If you are ever in the Bay area, this restaurant is a MUST to go to. Often times the line for this place is out the door so be prepared for a wait!

Stars: 5.0

What I Must Say: Their small location is made up for by their big taste in EVERYTHING on the menu. This may be one of the very few places I have been to that I love everything on the menu that I have tried. At first glance, the menu seemed strange including things like eggs and french fries on tacos but give it a try! The best items that I would recommend on their menu include the Steak & Egg Taco which is House Marinated Steak, Fries, Fried Egg, Chipotle Aioli, and Garlic Aioli as well as the Cali which is House Marinated Steak, Fries, Guacamole, Pico de Gallo, Spicy Sour Cream, and Cheddar. Tip for if you are trying the Steak & Egg Taco…flip the egg over so that the yolk side is down, enhances the flavor TREMENDOUSLY! Also, don’t forget to try their seasonal lemonade that changes based on the season. Some of the best lemonade that I have tried!

 

Happy eating!
