Hibiscus Restaurant, Oakland, CA: Thoroughly enjoyed my meal there. Quickly seated. The menu is not extensive, but varied enough and almost exclusively southern-style fare. Very affordable. Nice atmosphere. Friendly, attentive but relaxed service. Nice ambiance but easy enough to carry on a normal conversation.
The mixed green salad appetizer was fresh and large, had a good mix of greens and had a tasty vinegarette dressing. As an entree, I had the Jambalaya and it was terrific. Good flavor that grows on you; significant and noteworthy without being over-powering. Lots of chunks of chicken and sausage (you can also get it w/shrimp). I did not have dessert.
I would definitely go back and would recommend it if southern fare is your preference.
