After friends introduced me to Romolo’s in San Mateo I realized there must be other food treasures in my own backyard whose existence had escaped my attention. I really like the small town feel of some of the streets in the mid-Peninsula and would appreciate hearing about your favorite food places (restaurants, markets, dessert places, coffee shops) in “walkable” mid-Peninsula neighborhoods.
By walkable I mean a street that’s attractive, not too wide and where the traffic doesn’t intrude much. Places with outside tables would be a plus. Broadway just north of Millbrae Ave., Burlingame Ave., and Laurel St. in San Carlos meet my definition.
For the purpose of this post I'm defining mid-Peninsula as Millbrae to Redwood City. My favorite cuisines are Asian and Middle Eastern but I’d like to hear about all cuisines and what other people like.
