A dear friend will be spending three days in Fremont the first part of November and is in dire need of recos for lunch and dinner. I've researched the posts over the past year and listed some possibilities below.
He doesn't wish to travel too far from the immediate area so the farthest places I've included are in Milpitas. For dinner, fine dining to casual are fine, good wine lists a definite plus. A good fish place would be nice as would Mexican, Italian, German, Mediterranean, Thai, or Chinese. Probably not into Indian or Vietnamese so much. Same cuisines for lunch plus anywhere that does chicken well.
I get the feeling that SE Asian and Indian are the strong suits for the area.
Comments and strengths for the following or better alternatives most appreciated.
Munchner Haus Rita's German Deli
Kinder's Meat Deli BBQ
Strizzi’s - Italian (many seafood entrees?)
Ristorante Il Porcino
Cafe Buona Sera
La Casita – homestyle Mex
China Chili's or North China Restaurant
New York Pizza
La Cocina Mexicana -
Beck's Steakhouse & Seafood
A Touch of Aloha
Banana Leaf for Malaysian
Spice Route - inventive Pan-Asian, seafood
Barrio Fiesta - Filipino food
A few more gleaned from sources other than Chowhound in Fremont are:
East Bay Thai
Fremont Market Broiler - seafood
Carmen and Family Bar-B-Q
Gaters - Mediterranean
and in Newark:
La Cabaña for seafood
Many thanks to you Bay Area hounds.
