Last summer we learned that the boba cafe Sharetea would be coming to the newly remodeled “Mash” building in Orinda across from Orinda Theatre Square and they are going to open this Saturday, February 29th. Check out all the drink options here.
Thanks to a reader for pointing out that the Peruvian restaurant Lima, which opened a few years ago at Todos Santos Plaza in Concord, is planning to close mid to late March. A sign in the window indicates that Sultan’s Kebab will be coming here next. Possibly this one located in San Francisco, Pleasanton and Danville. Stay tuned…
Twisted Times restaurant and bar will be opening very soon, possibly as early as this coming Saturday, February 22nd, where Tullio’s Italian Restaurant used to be in Walnut Creek. With eighteen TVs there will be plenty of sports viewing options for sure! They have two menus, one Civilized, and the other Twisted. Check them out here.
Two separate menus with two unique types of dishes allow you to design your own dining experience. Choose small plates from our menu to customize your meal and add extra flavor to your day, such as a NY steak with gorgonzola butter from our savory bites, a loaded baked potato from our side bites, a caesar from our salad bites, and a cupcake from our dessert bites.
Last year we learned that Haya Ramen would be coming to the Downtown Pleasant Hill shopping center and their signage is now up. According to one of their job postings it will be an authentic Hakata Ramen restaurant. According to this Matcha Ramen magazine article, “a typical bowl of Hakata ramen is garnished with minimal toppings: just green onions and char siu (boiled or roasted pork).”
Hartz Cafe opened last spring in Danville but it was closed when I stopped by over the weekend and looked pretty empty inside. I also noticed a realtor lock box on the door handle. Anyone know what’s going on over there?
Thanks to a reader for sending word that Mo•ni Coffee & Tea opened recently at the Sprouts shopping center in Walnut Creek where The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf used to be. This is the first of a family owned cafe, not a chain and looks really amazing inside. Besides the ambiance, I tried the beet hummus avocado toast (check out the photos after the jump) and it was delicious! I’ll be back for sure (if I can find parking). Check out their menu here.
Judith made Mo•ni with the vision of creating a coffee shop that is a relaxing and comfortable environment for everyone! Mo•ni is here to be your newest go to coffee stop, in the mornings in the way to work, for your mid day pick me up, and any other coffee cravings you might have!
New Delhi Bistroopened back in 2012 at the Rheem Valley shopping center in Moraga but it became a vegetarian restaurant, Bagaan, last year. Thanks to a reader for pointing out that it reverted back to New Delhi Bistro but the, “Baagan burger selection is also still available.”
