Well, I'm excited to get some real input! I'm new to the site (due to the big outing in the latest travel/leisure - don't hate me because i discovered you there) but have been a devoted chowhound for years. I lived in SF for the past 5 years but recently moved to San Mateo. I miss the plethora of great spots to grab a bite and am looking for some replacements down here. Anything in the Burlingame/San Mateo/Belmont area would be great. Here's what I've found so far in san mateo:
Pancho Villa (same as the one in SF) on B street for burrittos.
Kisaku on 4th avenue for donburi
Ma Pinky's on amphlett for BBQ
Kingfish on 2nd (the first couple of times i went it was marginal but since then i've been very happy. I think it is a better $100 meal for two than either lark creek inn or viogner, the 2 other nice choices in the area).
Thanks for the input.
