Now that summer is right around the corner, I’m sure everyone is looking forward to the warmer summer nights to grab a cup of ice cream to enjoy their day. I am a huge ice cream fanatic and Cookiebar Creamery has one of the best ice cream and cookies in town. I am not kidding when I say I used to come here almost every week since they have amazing flavors and they make all their ice cream in-house. They have creative Asian flavors like pandan, Vietnamese iced coffee, jasmine milk tea, and even an interesting one like egg custard which I have been dying to try soon! Cookiebar used to have a location in Alameda but that has shut down during the pandemic so I believe their only location is now in Old Oakland near Broadway and Chinatown.

Saying I'm obsessed with their jasmine milk tea flavor is an understatement. I bought a whole pint the first time because it was amazing! Not only is the flavor on point but it is very refreshing and light. My other favorite is 1606 which is a mixture of cookies and cream, fudge, and peppermint. It has the perfect mixture and has a smooth, creamy consistency. It is more on the minty side but the cookie chunks add a sweeter factor. If you are a huge fan of mint chocolate chips, definitely go for this one. Cookiebar's flavors are extremely accurate to their names. I've had the honey melon flavor before and it tasted exactly like what it was. Cookiebar is ranked high on my top picks but the price is a bit steep. You do get a lot per scoop, but $4.50 for a single scoop is overpriced in my opinion so I try to limit myself on how many times I stop by.

If you are ever in Oakland, definitely make it a stop since I promise you will not regret it. Their cookies are also delicious since it is baked fresh every day and their cookies and cream cookies and regular chocolate chip cookies are to die for. The cookies are perfectly baked and love how even though the outside is crispy, the inside is still so soft and tender. Their cookies usually sell out by the end of the night so make sure to call ahead for pickup if possible. Overall, you must stop by Cookiebar Creamery - I guarantee you won’t regret it!

Oakland Eats: Tastee Steam Kitchen for Sauna Steam Pot

If you are looking for an innovative and interesting dining experience, check out Tastee Steam Kitchen for a sauna steam pot! Located on Harrison Street in Oakland Chinatown, Tastee offers a unique type of cuisine where you can select raw items and the food is inserted into an appliance where it steams the food so you can see it go from raw to steamed and cooked within minutes. This is a different type of cooking since it allows the food to retain flavor and nutrients while also being more tender and soft. It is considered more healthy since there is no preparation for the food besides steaming, so it is better than stir-frying or deep frying. Another part of this is that you can choose a porridge base that sits right under the appliance. There is rice cooking underneath and as you cook the food, all the juices and flavors also go into the porridge and soak it up. They serve the porridge afterward and there are plenty of spices like white pepper and chili oil to add more flavor. On the menu, they provide a marker where you can select the items you would like to steam. Their selection is extensive and you can choose from live seafood, vegetables, beef, chicken, pork, meatballs, and more. Most items are a la carte. If you are not interested in the sauna pot, they also have sushi rolls, seafood boils, mini individual hot pots, all-you-can-eat shabu, and more. There is also a sauce bar where you can mix your sauces filled with garlic, soy sauce, chili oil, cilantro, green onion, and more.
