"Great Cheap Pho!"

I don’t make into East Peralta much. However, when I do go, I usually try to check out one of the local Asian food places. Thanh Ky is great if you are in the mood for really good cheap noodles. There are also at least a half dozen Pho places in this neighborhood, most of them pretty good and all of them cheap. Of course, they all look more than a little sketchy so I would stick to the ones with parking lots like Pho Oakland. There is graffiti everywhere but Vietnamese people actually eat here, so you are guaranteed something close to authentic food. Go in the middle of the day though, this is not the kind of place you want to be wandering around in at nighttime.

Other than this, there are a lot of rundown looking car repair places and electricians—that kind of grungy industrial feel.

This is a working class to poor neighborhood, with really old, dingy looking buildings, older Victorians, and a fair number of what look to be abandoned lots with dust covered trucks, sand heaps and the general detritus of industry.

Over all, this might be a good place to snap up a bite to eat, but I wouldn’t hang idly around this area—especially in the later hours of the day.
