Cheap Dinners in Berkeley (and a few in Oakland)

This will be of interest to almost no one, so feel free to skip this. Shannon and I eat out every Friday night, but our budget is tight ($20 for the two of us), so we have tended to eat at the same few cheap places. As I'm tired of those places and interested in trying out some new stuff, I've done some research, but the notes have been scattered on scribbled notes tacked to my cork board, so today I decided to gather them all in one place. Hence this journal entry.
