Estampas Peruanas Redwood City, CA
Between Brewster and Broadway on El Camino Tue-Sun 11:30 - 21:00 Mon Closed Typical entree $9. Weekday lunch special $4.50. Wide selection of seafood, also some chicken, beef, and two vegetarian dishes. Neighborhood restaurant, clean, simple decor, friendly service. Mostly Peruvian clientele when we went on Saturday. Camarones al Ajo were good - lots of garlic. So was Arroz con Pollo. While you're waiting they bring fresh bread, butter, a pepper/horseradish(?) sauce, and a hominy salsa. Inca Kola is an interesting if overly sweet alternative to Coca Cola.
Vienna Woods Delicatessen Saratoga, CA
Very friendly people and pleasant outdoor dining in a courtyard between shops. Quiche has a flaky pastry crust - very good - probably not low calorie :-) Everything tastes fresh and well prepared.
Yiassoo Restaurant Cupertino, CA
3 stars if you eat in their converted fast food place with plastic plates and utensils. 4 stars if you take it home and eat with real plates and utensils, and open a nice bottle of wine.
Taj Mahal Indian Cuisine Mountain View, CA
They have some nice things on their lunch buffet that most of the Castro Street restaurants don't have. Maybe $0.50 - 1 more expensive and $1 less crowded.
White Lotus San Jose, CA
I'm not a vegetarian, but like to eat vegetarian food, and this is a very good spot for it. I'm torn whether to get the simulated meat (for the novelty, really quite good) or the normal vegetables (better). I mean, why would a real vegetarian *want* to eat simulated meat and how would they know whether it was a good facsimile? :-)
Frankie Johnnie & Luigi Too Mountain View, CA
The lasagne was unremarkable, kind of heavy, greasy, and without subtlety. The shrimp weren't fresh. Maybe it's OK if you stick to pizza.
Siam Square San Jose, CA
