I know we're entitled to our opinions. Silicon Valley/SJ/Santa Clara (and sometimes, San Mateo) county is butt-ugly, confusing to get around, and a cultural wasteland. Got that.
But what about FOOD??? There's Soon Tofu Row on El Camino in Santa Clara, for one. Don't know about you, but hearing the "I avoid the Valley/SJ at all costs" on the Subdividing Boards thread got me down. End of rant.
