Here in northern California, I’m really blessed because there are lots of great restaurants. And since I’m all about food, it’s pretty close to paradise.

In no particular order:

1) Frankie, Johnnie, and Luigi Too! is an Italian restaurant with the best pizza on the planet. They do everything else well, too. This is one of the restaurants that my dad insists on eating at when he and my mom visit from Hawaii, because the linguini with clams in garlic cream sauce is THAT GOOD.

2) Krung Thai restaurant has the best duck in red curry out of all the Thai restaurants I’ve eaten at. They have a really extensive menu so that Captain Caffeine can order something without coconut milk for himself, and we have yet to try something that doesn’t taste great. I also love their sticky rice with fresh mango dessert.

3) Alexander’s Steak House is a little pricey but delish. It’s not overpriced, considering the quality and quantity. Their beef is aged and cooked exactly the way you say you want it. This is our “special dinner” place. My husband had his yakudoshi party here (yakudoshi is a Japanese milestone birthday that means you’re getting old, it’s all downhill from here, so let’s celebrate to chase away the evil spirits).

4) Yiassoo Greek restaurant is family-owned, although they have two locations. The better location is in Campbell, near our church, so we often head there for lunch after service. Their gyros are to die for with homemade sauce and just the right spices in the meat. Their falafels are darn tasty, too. This location also has one of the best fryers—their French fries and fried calamari taste SO good! We think it’s because they don’t clean their fryer very often, which is kind of gross, but we’re not complaining because the food is so tasty.

5) Union Chinese restaurant is a hole-in-the-wall place with the best Hong Kong style noodles I’ve ever had, plus they don’t use much MSG. (In fact, Union restaurant and those Hong Kong style noodles are in a scene in Sushi for One.) They also have homemade won tons and a wor won ton soup that’s both delicious and healthy. I often get their black bean sauce noodles, which are hand-pulled noodles smothered in a rich black bean sauce with onion, zucchini and seafood.
