Check, Please! Bay Area, season 19, episode 4, airs Thursday, May 9, at 7:30 pm, on KQED 9. See other television airtimes.

First up, Emeryville’s women-, queer-, and immigrant-owned Good to Eat is home to an innovative menu inspired by the night markets and street festivals of Taiwan. Next, in San Francisco, Mission District destination Foreign Cinema wows guests with seasonal California-Mediterranean bites alongside classic films, taking “dinner and a movie” to a whole new level. Lastly, located on Telegraph Avenue, Oakland’s Barcote brings East Africa cuisine to the East Bay: expect a mouthwatering taste of Ethiopia with its savory samosas and freshly-baked injera bread.

Host Leslie Sbrocco joins guests Aparna Kothary, Lee Nora Glover Holloway and Alejandro Correa from KQED in San Francisco.
