May is upon us - as are spring, rising vaccination rates, and billions of pollen molecules swirling around in the air. And if you’re feeling like you want to get out of the house and try something new, you’re in the right place. This week’s guide to exciting food and drink-related things to do includes a dream collaboration between two of our favorite Oakland spots, the reopening of a fantastic SoMa restaurant, and a new brunch pop-up to check out.

Poppy SF

$$$$ 429 Gough St

Now in its third weekend, the new brunch pop-up operating out of Fig & Thistle in Hayes Valley will once again be serving breakfast-y dishes this Saturday and Sunday from 10am-2pm. Head over to Poppy SF for a breakfast sandwich with broccoli rabe, prosciutto, and calabrian chili cheddar sauce, or a barley waffle with whipped kumquat butter. They’ll also have coffee, orange juice, and spritzes to wash it all down with.

Popoca + Tacos Oscar

$$$$ 420 40th St.

The dream collab we’ve been waiting for since March is finally here: Salvadoran pop-up Popoca and Tacos Oscar are teaming up for one night only on Tuesday, May 4th. The menu features a braised short rib taco, black bean tamales, and, of course, Popoca’s cheesy pupusas with green garlic and a griddled jack cheese skirt. Walk up to order from 5-9pm (or until sell out). They’re also donating 10% of the event’s proceeds to Asian Pacific Islander Equality - Northern California.

Mourad

$$$$
Moroccan  in  Soma
$$$$ 140 New Montgomery St. #1

After a year-long hiatus, the upscale Moroccan restaurant is officially back. Mourad is currently taking reservations for indoor dining, Tuesday through Saturday from 5-9pm. Stop by for their crackly duck basteeya, or massive, juicy chicken with preserved lemon and olives.

H Mart

$$$$ 3995 Alemany Blvd

The massive Korean grocery store opened in Ingleside Heights two weeks ago - which means it’s time to go shopping. You’ll want to clear a couple of hours on your schedule to wander through aisles full of snacks, Asian pantry staples, produce, meats, seafood, and more. There’s also a food court with five stalls, including a second location of Daeho Kalbijim & Beef Soup and one serving Korean fried chicken.

Palmetto

$$$$ 1900 Telegraph Ave.

The Oakland cocktail bar and restaurant opened for takeout briefly last summer - but closed in June due to the pandemic. Now they’re back, and offering indoor dining in their brightly-colored space for the first time ever. Make a reservation and sit down for mussels and chorizo, pan-roasted halibut, or chocolate banana cream pie, and something from their extensive list of cocktails, wine, and beer.

Planterday + Red Bay Coffee

$$$$ 3098 E 10th St

This Mother’s Day, mobile plant shop Planterday is popping up at Red Bay Coffee’s Public Roastery on E 10th. From 8am-12pm, stop by for excellent espresso drinks and coffee and get some beautiful plants to take home. Planterday is donating a portion of their proceeds to Alameda County’s Crisis Support Services.
