My Bestie turned me on to a great new restaurant in Oakland with a laxed dress code and amazing food, Rumbo Al Sur.
Rumbo Al Sur is an adorable restaurant on the corner of Park and Wellington in the heart of the Glenview Neighborhood in my hometown, Oakland, California. They specialize in Mexican and Latin Tapas or small plates.
I am always looking for amazing places to visit in Oakland because I just love my hometown, and Oakland has places that I would never know about unless I did some scouting. I really appreciated the diversity as well and that Rumbo Al Sur really had that Oakland feel that I grew up with.
I really loved the neighborhood, that parking was cool on a Friday night and when we walked into the restaurant we were greeted with a delicious aroma of amazing Mexican food and great service.
We did have to wait about 15 minutes, but it was because we did not call ahead for reservations! So make sure that you call them to see if reservations are required on that day!
The Drinks at Rumbo Al Sur
We both ordered Margarita's and honestly, we could have had these all night. They were strong, tasty and felt Top-Shelfish in the Tequila department!
The Food at Rumbo Al Sur
The food was too good! I ordered Nachos and Krystal ordered Taco's! While I didn't have any of her Taco's they looked good!!...and I was not able to even get a full picture before she snagged one!
I had the Nachos. They were served on a bed of homemade chips, covered in amazing beans, cheese and salsa. However, it was the meat that was sautéed and soaked in this "saucy heaven" that made the Nachos the best in the Bay! I was dreaming about those Nachos all weekend long!
If you are looking for a perfect Friday night Fix, then this is most definitely the spot for you to check out! Especially as we are getting into the Cinco de Mayo season.
