Best Poke Bowl

Poke Koma

From the islands of Hawaii to the island city of Alameda, poke bowls have exploded in popularity in recent years. But there'€™s one clear winner in Alameda for poke bowls: Poke Koma. Variety is key to a good poke bowl, and here, you'€™ll find a selection of bases including white rice, brown rice, spring mix, and crab chips, plus seafood ranging from hamachi and scallops to octopus and crawfish. Toppings run the gamut from fried shallots to won ton crisps, and customers can add avocado at no extra charge (because let'€™s be real: Everybody wants avocado, but nobody wants to pay extra).

Best Place to Propose Marriage

Rock Wall Wine Company

One would argue that there is no more romantic sunset in the Bay Area than one seen from Alameda Point, watching the golden sun sink slowly behind the iconic San Francisco cityscape and into the Pacific. Therefore, there is no more of an ideal place to propose marriage than Rock Wall Wine Co. at sunset. After all, whether by the bottle or by the glass, Rock Wall has plenty of bubbly in stock and is always ready for a celebration. Make it a festive affair with friends and family, or an intimate affair for just the two of you, nuzzled together on an outdoor loveseat. However you choose to pop the question, it will undoubtedly be a scenic memory to cherish.

Most Relaxing Way to Commute

San Francisco Bay Ferry

Why squeeze your way onto a crowded BART train or deal with Bay Bridge traffic on the Transbay bus when you could commute on the ferry? Whether you'€™re departing from Harbor Bay or Alameda Main Street, the San Francisco Bay Ferry is a tranquil alternative. In the mornings, grab a cup of coffee from the friendly bartenders and sit indoors or grab some fresh air on the outdoor deck. In the evenings, commuters can grab a cocktail, beer, or a glass of wine from the affable barkeeps and enjoy the view of the sun setting over the bay.
