South Bay suburbs: Help this family out of an eating rut!

Tumkers | Jun 24, 2010 09:01 PM

I think this is a particularly chowhound type topic. Anyone with plenty of disposable income can eat at famous Manresa and know it is good, but only a chowhound will sniff out the right 1.25$ taco! We eat out as a family a lot. We seem to frequent the same places over and over again for price (around $45 for 4) and relative quality. But we need new places

These are our basic routes and places

Mountain View: Maru Ichi ramen, Happy Bowl for bibimbap, A Good Morning (brkfst), Taqueria La Bamba for papusas

Cupertino: Aqui's, Red Mango, Rio Adobe, Yiasoo for gyros, Whole Foods cafe for burgers, Pizza My Heart for the pizza and salad combo, Beard Papa and Lee's Sandwiches (under duress)

Saratoga: Rose Int'l Market for kebabs, Yola Tea (froyo, boba)

Los Gatos: Sweet Peas, Andale (the smaller one), Dolce Spazio (cake, gelato)

Campbell: Chicken Coop, Green Cup Yogurt

San Jose West and Almaden: Burrito Factory (soft tacos, enchiladas, sopa de res, grilled chicken super burrito) Slight preference for the Almaden location

What are your favorite everyday places? What do you order at each place? Let your ruts become my new find!

Dolce Spazio
221 N Santa Cruz Ave, Los Gatos, CA 95030

A Good Morning
4546 El Camino Real Ste A13, Los Altos, CA 94022
