Fried Chicken Sandwich — Bakesale Betty, Oakland

Perpetually purple-wigged owner Alison Barakat started as a pastry chef at the ultimate farm-to-table temple: Alice Waters’ Chez Panisse in neighboring Berkeley. Fooling around on lunch breaks, she whipped up these extra-crispy buttermilk fried chicken patties for co-workers, topping sandwiches with a savory slaw of sliced jalapeños, pickled red
onions, and high-quality olive oil. There was so much demand for her upscale McChicken that she soon opened her own lunch counter spot, which runs through 1,000 chicken sandwiches daily. Arrive early — they sell out.
