07.26.14, Saturday @ Belly Uptown (Oakland)
I was tempted to leave my review at this to make everyone drool. Just kidding. That’s naughty of me.
Belly is a great find!
The menu is small focusing on “The Art of Street Tacos” and burgers. It is located in the middle of Uptown neighborhood in Oakland surrounded by new condos.
The place is bright and contemporary but also warm and cute. . Everything is sparkling and new inside and the service is very friendly.
- Mine: UPTOWN BURGER $11
Grilled Patty, Grilled Red Onions, Bleu Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato, Garlic Aioli
- BF: BELLY BURGER $11
House Marinated Patty, Red Onion Tempura, Sauteed Mushrooms, Cheddar Cheese, House Pickled Cucumbers, Garlic Aioli, Kimchi Aioli
2 orders of TRUFFLE FRIES $6
I only eat burgers about 1-2x a year. (Last time on record was 8/24/13 @ Umami). I know I had sneaked in a slider or two here and there. Bottom line is Belly is a winner in my book! Next time I decide to eat a burger again, Belly is a very likely possibility. The burgers were very juicy and the bun was soft. Next I will go for the regular fries instead. The truffle fries were just okay. (I like True Burger and Umami as well.) And next time, I will definitely have to try Belly’s “Art of Street Tacos.”
