The Bay Area isn’t nationally recognized for its BBQ. We’re secretly OK with that—if it means we get to keep gems like Fikscue to ourselves. But of course, we’re going to stand on an apple crate and shout about this tiny, part-Texas-style BBQ, part-Indonesian restaurant in Alameda. It’s a smoked meat paradise, full of beef back ribs and peppery brisket by the pound as well as smoked sausage filled with cheese. The Indonesian specials, like the nasi goreng, bowls of soto padang, and brisket rendang rice plates with coconut milk-soaked greens, are worth the wait in the line that forms on Saturday and Sunday mornings (they're open weekends only). Arrive early since they will sell out.
