Oakland/Berkeley food-related heads-up: if you like Champa Garden...

...and you buy groceries at the Berkeley Bowl, be sure to check the back of your receipt — one of the coupons currently running is for 25% off at Champa Garden. It's a little confusing, and I'm not quite sure what the line "Mon-Thurs 9:30-3:00, Fri-Sun to 10:30" means; is it valid only for weekday lunch and weekend early-early lunch? I don't think they're even open at 9:30. One would want to ask about it before ordering, to be prudent. I'll try to report back if the monkey and I wind up using the coupon.

In other food news, I picked up 4 pounds of key limes from the bargain produce shelves at the Berkeley Bowl for $0.69 and am planning to spend the afternoon zesting and juicing them for freezing. Also a head of orange cauliflower, which will get roasted. I love the bargain produce table.

Piedmont Grocery has the same coupons. The food at Champa is really great, just too far for me to get to from work (and quite perilous on bike). The first three appetizers and their Mango Paradise (although I substitute chicken for shrimp) are quite tasty.

Champa's web site also has no hours listed. Most irritating. I doubt they are open for breakfast.

Do you think I could get them to open another branch in Wisconsin? What about the Berkeley Bowl? We could call it the Appleton Bowl.

The menu on that Champa Garden link almost made me cry. Just so you know.
