Limster SouthBay Tour from Lunch to Dinner (long)

Lambert Yim | May 20, 2002 10:43 AM

This posting cover the food we ate before and after the great lunch order by the Limster.

I picked up Quee and Simon in Redwood City and stop at a street vendor outside of a Mexican market. El Merdiato Lanto on El Camino Real (south of Roosevelt). These are Central American style witht the smoothest Mesa I have had. This was the frist of many stops.

After we had lunch we stop a Korean Market on El Camino located in same shopping center as Comp USA. This is the new maybe the best stock market of this type in the Santa Clara Valley. We did some shopping and the Limster disapper for a second and the next thing I saw was he reappearing with a empty bag and saying that he lady was nice to let buy only one. I did not know what he ate. There were a lot of semi-prepared food that you can buy and make to dinner cooking time a lot shorter.

House of Eggroll, at Jackson and El Camino. A verison of Chinese/Vietnamese eggroll. At 50 cent each it was a treat that did not cost much. When I look at the steam table I saw 6 that had been seating for awhile, so I order 7 that way they fried some up fresh. The first in what someone said " What real Chowhounds we are standing in the street and eating."

Mochi in Japantown. This shop is located on Jackson between 5th and 6th. When we arrive at 1:00 PM they were also sold out, so our selection was limited. But the Limster said that the sweet rice was ground very fine and the taste was great. The mochi was 1.00 each.

Voung tofu shop on corner of Lundy and Berryessa. We had dessert tofu or as the Chinese call it the flower of the tofu. They had two sauces, one with ginger and one without. Limster said the this was the second best that he had tasted. Only better was back home at a really good eating place. But for a 1.25 this could not be beat.

Our last stop was at the new Asia Complex at 1100 Story Road. We tour the mual for two hours before having dinner which Simon will report on at a later posting. We had what I think was Pandan favored waffles, snacked a "see moy" shop, shopped a food markert and snacked at bakery. We walked enough to get ready for dinner.

Simon will do a posting about dinner. I hope this road trip will give Limster something thing about in cold winter of Boston.
