Cool Fellow Foodie Thread >:3 !!

Hey there everyone !


I am starting a new thread about something very important to me ... GOOD FOOD !!!


Normally I would just post in the activity/meet thread but I do not think it is appropriate to blow up that thread with pictures of mouth-watering edible delight


So the rules to this thread are simple !
1) Name of place , time , address , meetup point for any open-invitation food outings !

Ex :
"What up peeps ?!
Gonna go ham at Tatami for the lunch buffet tomorrow 9/1 @1pm !!

10123 N Wolfe Rd #2001, Cupertino, CA 95014

If you are down to eat , meet up in front of the restaurant inside Vallco !
I'll try to park in the second floor parking lot , look for Sophie !"


2) When writing review/experience at a place , be sure to include name , address , what was good/bad , service (because it is possible to not enjoy a meal as well because service was crap even if the food is great) , overall experience and recommendation when visiting !


3) And most importantly .....



We live in an area bless with amazing food and a giant diversity of cuisine , let us take full advantage of it !!!

HAPPY EATING EVERYONE !

Most likely off topic but... Tatami sort of sucks.

Well, sucks is maybe too strong of a word. But it's really hit or miss, with hit being "average" and miss being "I think I have food poisoning."

Source: used to eat there way too often

Anyways this is a good idea, I need to find new and exciting places to eat anyways.

Nah I know what you mean ! Quality sure has dropped since it was Todai but I still like going for lunch since it isn't too expensive and I have to ball on a budget haha :p

And this is not considered off topic because you are chiming in on your experiences there !

Hey Guys,

I have a suggestion for those in the San Jose area. How about Le Bon de Cuisine on Sunday 8/2 for lunch at noon? Le Bon for short, is a French/Vietnamese fusion restaurant and is amazing. It would be great to get to know you guys a bit more since I could not stay that long for my last southbay meetup. Let me know what you guys think. We can all park directly in front of the restaurant, as there is plenty of space. Here is the yelp for the restaurant if you guys want to check it out. http://www.yelp.com/biz/le-bon-de-cuisine-san-jose

I have suggestions for those in SF. Probably my favorite fried chicken joint is in SF, San Tung. It's on Irving street. Almost always a line, but it goes by quick.

Every table you see there will have a plate of their dry fried chicken wings, and the green beans.

I'm not so sure about that. I am yet to have Mexican food as good as what I've had in the valley.

Have you tried the tacos at Taqueria Vallarta in San Francisco? It's off of Cesar Chavez and a block down from Humphrey Slocomb ice cream.

Land Ocean, a steak and seafood place, has great ribeye (I literally ate one or two of those a week for 7 months straight).

Saffron Grill has amazing Persian food.

Pho ABC is comparable with some of the great Vietnamese places in San Jose.

There's a few solid sushi options (I was surprised, pretty much every sushi place I went to besides a few were average to above average; I was expecting terrible to mediocre Japanese food).

Oz Korean BBQ is legit, especially for an all you can eat place. It's so much better than the all you can eat place in the Bay Area (Palace).

Man I'm getting hungry typing all this...
