When Stephen was attending Cal, he would frequent a sandwich and bakery shop, Bakesale Betty, in Oakland on 51st and Telegraph. SheryAnne’s coworker, who is a long time foodie of Oakland, introduced the shop to her several months ago as well. SheryAnne and Stephen had no idea that they were both huge fans of this sandwich shop until we all happen to be talking about great “hole-in-the-wall” eateries. Since then, both of them would rave to me about how great their fried chicken sandwiches were. They would tell me about how people would bear standing in long lines just to have a chance at getting one of these chicken sandwiches. They would also tell me that the sandwiches were so good, they would run out by mid-day. And because of this, SheryAnne would never have a chance to bring one home for me after work to try. Since Stephen and Shaun were here to visit during the holidays, we decided it was a great time to wait in line so I could finally get a taste of this hyped sandwich! Wow – all I can say was it that it was totally worth it!
If you are ever in the area, it’s totally worth the stop!
