Ethnic in Far South Bay
Heading down to the San Jose area for the first time in eons Sunday and would love to get some recs on particularly good ethnic restaurants for an early evening meal. Particularly interested in variations either not available in SF/EB or far superior. Prefer Asian but will, of course, consider anything special.
Will be driving back to SF, so anything en route will work too.
You can also try the original Vung Tau in downtown San Jose. They have a great catfish stew and I love their banh khot appt. When crab is in season the tamarine crab is great.
There are also other great Vietnamese restaurants off of Story Road. There is an entire shopping center that has a good food court there. The Banh Xeo (Vietnamese pancake)looks was pretty nice and crispy. Good luck!!!
