Moving to San Mateo: Food?

Joy | Aug 15, 200506:33 PM

We're thinking of moving to San Mateo, as working in SF and living in Mountain View is a drag. My partner works in Palo Alto, so this would be a good compromise, commuting-wise. We're going to look at houses this Saturday, and likely next weekend as well. I'm hoping that we'll like this community.

The important questions, of course, are: What are the restaurants like? Is San Mateo a community that a chowhound could be happy in? Where should we eat Saturday? (We'll be looking at houses near the train station.) And, for grocery shopping, what are the alternatives to Albertsons? Are there interesting ethnic markets? Farmer's markets? Gourmet markets? Maybe even a decent health food store?
