Favorite Restaurants of San Jose area

Japanese

  • Izakayahttps://www.yelp.com/biz/izakaya-restaurant-san-jose
    • The Sushi is really good and very fresh tasting.
      • I think they have the beast Salmon nigiri that I have had.
    • If not into Sushi their other items are also very good.
      • Chicken Katsu
      • Chicken Curry Katsu – Same as the above but it’s in a curry sauce
      • Pork Fried Kimchi – an appetizer
      • Soy Sauce Rice Ball – I don’t know the Japanese name but these are really good if you like a burnt grilled taste.
    • Downside – The place is really small so it can get a bit cramped.
  • Hanahttps://www.yelp.com/biz/hana-san-jose
    • Hand Made dumplings – think Gyoza or potstickers
    • This is an interesting place, nothing is mind blowing but if you want a traditional taste of Asia it’s a good stop.
    • They make a fried pancake and I don’t know what’s in it but I always have to get it because it’s so good. I eat it with a mix of garlic and vinegars they give you.

Korean

  • Chungdam https://www.yelp.com/biz/chungdam-santa-clara
    • This place has a variety of Korean food. We normally get a meat plate and a vegetable. They bring it to your table and the waitress will cook it, it’s very good and they are really nice if you have any questions.
