This week: good news for fans of ice cream, sushi, coffee, and comfort food; bad news for Nation’s customers.
1) After an unbelievably protracted permitting process, iScream finally opened last week near the top of Solano in North Berkeley. The Yelp reviews are, of course, already rolling in, and they’re more or less positive: Yelper Eric L. says “This is just seriously great ice cream. I still can’t believe how good it tastes,” while Mollie M. even compares it favorably to SF legend Bi-Rite creamery.
2) Food-truck mecca Emeryville will soon be getting yet another purveyor of mobile deliciousness. According to one of the trucks’ owner-chefs, Zak Silverman, Doc’s will begin setting up on Hollis by the start of next week, and will serve what Silverman calls “classic American comfort food”: cheeseburgers, pulled pork, mac n’cheese, and the like.
