Tomorrow some friends and I are planning to take a short food road trip, possibly to East or South Bay (but potentially anywhere within a 70 mile radius of SF).
We're hoping to eat things that we normally can't eat in San Francisco - or at least at a place that is the best of its type in the Bay Area. We're intrigued by Afghan or Persian food, since it seems like options in San Jose/Fremont areas might be really good, but we'd potentially be open to any kind of food (or even make multiple stops)
I found this thread on Persian places in Peninsula - any updates on any of these?
And also references to Kabul Restaurant in Sunnyvale and Salang Pass in Fremont.
We'll probably be leaving SF around 10 AM and want to return by 3 or 4 PM....so the meal will be lunch.
We probably would not want to spend more than $30 per person.
We'd be open to other things too if they were really worth the trip - South Indian, Taiwanese, Croatian, Other Middle Eastern, etc. etc.
Any ideas? I want to come away from the lunch feeling like it was worth the drive, since I don't get to drive to places like Fremont or San Jose very often.
Thanks a lot!
