Hi Fellow Gourmands

I am on business visit from India in San Jose for some months .After trawling the chowhound and elsewhere I have drawn up a list of restaurants/places to visit

I am filling up a list here based on what I have heard on the board so far , I shall keep updating the list . Will be staying off as much as Indian as possible .Cursory searches in Chinese on the boards havent turned anything yet for me (I must be definitely missing the obvious), and Japanese there is too much to filter down yet ....

My goal is to eat my way through as much American food is possible as well ......


1.Sri Lankan -Kadupul
2.Korean - Kunjip (Any reco for stuff nearer to San Jose?)
3.Vietnamese - Saigon Seafood
4.Isan style Thai (?)
5.Thai Bangkok Sytle (?)
6.Japanese Sushi (There was a wonderful thread on it but couldnt find it , can some one link to it ?)
7.Sushi Sawa - Is it open for outsiders now ?
8.Japanese Ramen (There are many threads need to fill this one up)
9. Mexican - El Gallo Giro
10. Middle East - unresearched

1.In and Out -what else !!


Bistro - Nordstorm Cafe
Village California
Diner - ?
Brew pub - ?
Fine Dining - Manresa
Zuni Cafe
Chez Pannise(Should I ?)
BBQ - Smoking Pig
Boulangerie - Any american style bakeris or french ones which are worth it?

Am I missing more styles?
