Now that my new job is in San Jose, I have a brand new city to explore and a whole lot of restaurants to try!
Here are some standouts so far:
La Victoria Taqueria a.k.a. LaVic’s — By complete surprise, I had the best quesadilla I’ve ever had IN MY LIFE here. I know, bold claim. But it’s really that good. Don’t forget to add the orange sauce!
Crema Coffee — This place service above average coffee (even by Bay Area standards) in a cute place. Plenty of tables, chairs, and couches. Fun fact: they roast coffee beans on site!
Cafe Rosalena — Takes the breakfast burrito category to a new level (and a new size)! Lots of options here, I’ve only had the chorizo but I’ll definitely be back to try the others.
San Pedro Square Market — Okay, just ignore their poorly designed website and trust me (and these people on Yelp), this place is really cool! It is huge, feels like you’re in a huge barn with garage doors (exposed beams, exposed brick walls, etc.) and there are countless restaurants, bars and sweets. Would love to come back and try all the different places in here and check out some of their evening/weekend events. Looks like they also have great outdoor seating as well as space for live music and movie screenings.
That’s all for now — although I will say I am delighted that I just discovered that they opened an Ike’s within walking distance from my office!
