Juice Bar Collective Peanut butter banana shake: Juice Bar Collective is probably my favorite food spot in The Gourmet Ghetto in Berkeley. It's a small worker-owned collective that offers a variety of veggie (and a few meat) entrees like polenta, lasagne, and bahn mi. This may be surprising given the name Juice Bar, but they also had some fantastic beverage options to accompany your meal. The peanut butter and banana shake I had with soy milk had just the right amount of peanut butter without affecting its smooth, creamy consistency. Much ... (read more) 3.5/5.0

Balthazar Banana Nut Donut: NYC institution Balthazar had a small bakery adjacent to the restaurant where you can grab pasties and coffee to go. Their banana nut donut is very good, with a fluffy texture lightly iced and topped with a banana-nut crumble. I love banana nut bread, and this treat successfully captures its essence in a way that is neither overly sweet nor heavy. 3.5/5.0

Bubble Tea Share Time Ginger milk tea with boba: Small mom-and-pop bubble tea shop Share Time is yet another bubble tea option in Berkeley. Located on Shattuck about a ten minute walk from the Downtown Berkeley BART station, Its menu consists of largely classic milk and fruit teas. Their ginger milk tea is very good, with a prominent ginger flavor mellowed out by creamy milk. Boba was above average in consistency - a little soft but with good elasticity. Would visit again. 3.5/5.0

Kras Lemon orange napolitanke wafers: To be honest, I got these Croatian wafers from Walgreens when I had to pick up some shampoo. They're surprisingly good, though, with a tart citrus flavor and crispy thin water layers. Definitely on the sweet side but since they come in bite-sized pieces, portion control is easy. Great value-very inexpensive and tasty even not accounting for the price. 3.5/5.0

Bruce Cost Passion Fruit ginger soda: Brooklyn-based Bruce Cost offers some of the better ginger sodas more widely available (at Whole Foods, for example). Their passion fruit soda is unique, providing a sharp tropical flavor combination. Like others in their line, the Soda has ginger sediments on the bottom that give texture and spice. 3.5/5.0

Cape Cod Ginger Original Ginger Soda: Sometimes bad packaging can be just as attention-grabbing as good branding, in effect indicating that the company might be spending more on its homemade product than on graphic design. That's likely the case with Cape Cod Ginger, a company specializing in carbonated, organic, cold-pressed ginger drinks of various fruit flavors including passion fruit and pineapple. I opted for the classic, which induced a healthy tingly sensation as good ginger drinks do. Slightly sweeter than I personall... (read more) 3.5/5.0
