I think I'm gonna treat myself to the Moveable Feast food trucks at Canoas Garden tonight.

I think Koja Kitchen is calling me!

there's also one in Fremont
Fatty brisket all the way! The burnt ends and wolf turds (jalapenos stuffed with sausage and wrapped in bacon) are awesome! Have not been to the new one in Fremont though.

Las Vegas went downhill a while back IMO. Or did they improve?

If you like carne asada fries, check out Santa Fe taqueria! http://www.yelp.com/biz/santa-fe-taqueria-san-jose

Tacos are the only thing worth going for. You are right though, the rest is pretty shit.

That's sad to hear, as I used to live down the street from the one in Fremont and loved going there. I was worried when NUMMI closed down that they would be forced out of business, and was relieved when I heard Tesla was going to reopen it. Because it would help that place survive. But it sounds like from what @darkonion has said, the prices have gone up and they are milking those Tesla guys for all they're worth haha. Oh well I will still give it a shot next time I am in the area, I always got the tacos and a nice cold cup of horchata.

Carne asada fries, I keep hearing people talk about them but haven't tried it yet... have to check that out sometime.

I do remember that much regarding the prices at Las Vegas... But I've never been to the Fremont location.

Also there's a newer, lesser known La Vics on 4th street for those in SJ. Very new. Lengua super burrito = crunchy, chewy awesomeness.

Two things I can talk about all day... food and cars!

Since its seems most of you folks are in the South bay and I've been in a bit of a ramen kick lately, here's some of my favorite ramen places in my neck of the woods:

Yojimbo sushi (Alameda): my go-to local spot. Good Korean style spicy miso pork ramen

Ramen shop (Oakland): "fancy" ramen, yummy but kind of on the expensive side. Gets really busy, come early to avoid the long wait.

Sobo ramen (Oakland): crazy number of different broths (tonkatsu, shoyu, etc.) but I love the tonkatsu with a little mayu (black garlic oil).
