Now Oakland has its very own ~UMAMI BURGER~, which officially (soft) opened Monday July 8th. The new location has its own “signature burger,” the queso fundido, with a gut-busting combo of chile con queso and chorizo fundido sauce on top of a burger patty. It’s open daily 11am-11pm. 2100 Franklin St. at 21st St., Oakland, 510-899-8626.

The ~COMAL~ team is looking to open a second restaurant in Berkeley’s Elmwood neighborhood (in the Wright’s Garage space). It will be focused on Northern California cuisine and cocktails. Nosh has the details on the potential project—the team will have to get some approvals first, starting with a change of use. Stand by for updates soon. 2635 Ashby Ave. at College, Berkeley.

~OFF THE GRID~ has started a new pod in Emeryville on Wednesdays from 11am-2pm. The new market happens behind Emeryville’s City Hall and will include four or five different trucks every week. Last week started with Mayo & Mustard and Hapa SF; check out the latest trucks on their Facebook page. Haven St. between Park and 40th Ave.
