Gourmet Junk - Not an oxymoron at Gregoire in Berkeley
Eating gourmet food from junk food cartons at Gregoire restaurant with the Berkely sun shining in my face was nothing less than a moving experience.
Here is a small collague from this Moving experience a sunny Sunday in February.
This little take out place in the hearth of Berkeley gourmet ghetto is worth of a trip anyday. I have seen lots of restaurant, but seldom am I faced with such an innovative concept. The chef dressed in classic white costume casually making food and chatting with the guests sitting right outside the. The food is prepared from premium ingredients. They are particularely famous for their Potato Puffs made of mashed potato which is deep fried golden. This was a real treat, rich in taste and wonderfully simple. The roasted garlic potato gratin was simply ingeniuos. I wish McDonald's concept guys would stop for a brainstorm session.
I had the Roast beef with hazelnut & Raclette cheese in grilled lavash. This was one of the best wraps I have ever had. It is funny that the old saying that good food starts from the ingredients. When served like any junk food, you have a bizarre sensation...this kind of stuff is not suposed to taste like this. I cannot call this anything else than Gourmet Junk. The pricing was very reasonable $6.50 for the Roastbeef and $4.0 each for the potatoes and I can tell you one did not leave this place hungry.
Of the small details I really enjoyed was the organic lemonade and the 'silvery' plastic cutlery and finally recycling, bottles in one garbage bin and rest in another.
Pay them a visit you will not be dissapointed.
Thank you for the recommendation! I stopped by Gregoire last week, and the potato puffs were DIVINE.

Not much on my mind worth mentioning. What can I say? My life's been generally dull today. I've just been letting everything pass me by recently.

Yes! Its true that SEO is the biggest source of income as well as it is the another way to enlarge a Web site's traffic counts, and eventually conversions, by position very high in the results of searches for the keywords in the search query. It is the mission of SEO to make the site's content worthy of higher search engine ranking by being more relevant and competent than the competition's.
Thank you for sharing with us. Keep it up
