There’s a lot to love about Oakland, not the least of which is the food. A recent Chow article gives us 10 more reasons to “hella love Oakland.” Sara Henry, a freelance writer and contributing editor at Edible East Bay, takes readers on a culinary tour of the city, from “the kitchen sistahs” to “the culinary couples.” Along the way she stops to make us drool, with dreams of empanadas, rice bowls, and pizzas. Sara skips from East Oakland, to Uptown, to Downtown, knowing that each section of the city offers something special. At OBDC, we revel in the fine eats we can find in our Oakland home. We’re also committed to helping Bay Area food businesses prosper through affordable financing and comprehensive business support. Check out our recent post to read about our work financing food businesses.
