Lunch in Milpitas
Hi chowhounds...I work in Milpitas and always have trouble coming up with lunch options. There's tons of ethnic food around here, and I'm normally an adventurous eater, but sometimes it's a little too ethnic in these parts. Any suggestions for the following:
great sandwich places
Any other quick, tasty lunch options
Some places I like around here -- banana leaf, ABC dim sum, the taco truck in Alviso, a couple of Thai places that I know by sight but not by name. thanks for the help!
sandwich place: Erik's DeliCafe, 148 N. Milpitas Blvd 408-262-7878. open 7 days www.eriksdelicafe.com
Lee's Sandwiches-they make American and Vietnamese sandwiches
Nhu Lan Sandwiches, 1244 S. Abel St, Milpitas 408-956-0615
I'm working my way thru Milpitas and Alviso too. I reviewed Vahl's in Alviso recently and plenty of other places.
Thanks for the suggestions -- will report back when I try some of these...The placs in Alviso sound interesting. I've never noticed Vahl's, and I'm not sure how I've missed Erik's Deli in all my years working in Milpitas.
my office is on the corner of mccarthy/montegue.
these are my local spots:
prolific oven - rivermark - sandwiches, salads, soups, bakery
baja fresh - rivermark - mexican/baja whatever.
piatti's - rivermark - italian
red robin - rivermark - american/burgers
st john's - sunnyvale - burgers

family delight cafe - 'little mccarthy' - under abc seafood, cheap fast eats. nothing great imo.
abc seafood - litte mccarthy - dim sum
the thai joint - little mccarthy - thai food
pepper lunch - mccarthy ranch - japanese teppan
mayflower restaurant - mccarthy ranch - dim sum
mayflower cafe - mccarthy ranch - quick chinese bistro eats
won kee - mccarthy ranch - chinese/hk style bbq
golden flower? or osmething by darma - mccarthy ranch - dim sum
pho - ranch 99 plaza off hotsetter (sp?)
a&j restaurant - ranch 99 plaza - taiwanese cafe : braised beef noodles and potstikers are great here.
that's just off the top of my mind. there's also a decent vietnamese broken rice joint off montegue and capitol ave. there's also a taquiria there as well. both are pretty good.
i can't remember everything but i post most of what i eat on my 'food journal thing'
feel free to email me anytime if you want to grab lunch, we're always looking for new 'foodies' firstname.lastname@example.org
