Nestled into the deep, deep areas of San Jose somewhere, a place I rarely frequent, is the second of two locations of the The Boiling Crab. What I took on as a spicy challenge ended up being something else–but a fun and entertaining evening with great company and a terrific dining concept. The location is large, but good luck bringing a large party because only one thing is certain: they do not take reservations, period.
Tucked away in the sleepy town of Millbrae is this gem of a restaurant. Small, cozy and run by a reserved Japanese sushi chef, his masterful skills impress bite after bite. If ever there was a reason to leave the city for sushi — this is it.
Business is booming at Turtle Tower, so they decided to go ahead and gouge their customers for more money. Now, they want only cash, and will still charge us taxes. But for our convenience, they state, they will provide an ATM at which we can pay them fees to withdraw cash. Boo on TT; I think not.
Is there any reason not to go visit an all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ with dduk-bossam?
I didn’t think so.
YakiniQ in Japantown of San Francisco offers good meat, a casual and fun space, with good dduk-bossam. Read the review to find out all about the restaurant as well as how to eat this Korean cuisine.
Once in awhile, a restaurant raises the bar for one specific cuisine type. For me, the one that sets the bar for excellent Chinese food is R&G Lounge in San Francisco. Fresh, flavorful seafood is prepared in a multitude of ways to make each ingredient shine — and every kind of seafood imaginable, including geoduck, is featured on the huge menu.
You order one thing at Ha Nam Ninh: “25 Dry”. This flavorful bowl of noodles topped with meat and seafood, drizzled in a special sauce concoction, is the ideal lunch and inordinately addictive.
Shabu Pub continues to stoop lower and lower. Now they use Facebook to do it.
Craw Station, on 9th at Irving, is the place to go to for spicy food. While mild versions are available and just as tasty — when they say “DYNAMITE” — they aren’t kidding; they mean to explode your taste buds.
There is never a night on which I will turn down a “Seven Courses of Beef” dinner at Anh Hong. It’s a healthy meal, fresh, and packed full of flavor and fun! If you like Vietnamese Spring Rolls – you will absolutely love Anh Hong!
