You may not know Oakland food legend Tanya Holland personally, but if you’re a brunch-o-phile like many of as at GoBanter, you probably know her lip-smacking cornmeal waffles with cider syrup. Holland is the force behind one of Oakland’s top breakfast joints, Brown Sugar Kitchen, and the hip, down-home B-Side BBQ on the Oakland/Emeryville border. Apparently Oakland mayor Jean Quan is a fan, because she declared June 5, 2012 Tanya Holland Day. In honor, we sampled the poached eggs and grits with a buttermilk biscuit on the side. Amaaaazing! We suggest you try them too. Or gobble up a pulled pork sandwich at B Side, and give silent thanks to Tanya Holland.
