Help me rock a work pot-luck in Sunnyvale...
- adamclyde Sep 7, 2011 12:15 PM
So while I work up in Sunnyvale now, I live in Southern California, so I don't really know the food well yet around the South Bay. But I'm supposed to participate in a work Pot Luck in Sunnyvale in a few weeks and am trying to think of what to bring. Being a newbie at work and being hotel-bound, making something myself is not an option. So I'd love to bring something good from a nearby restaurant or food purveyor. While it needs to be somewhat accessible for non chow types, I don't want to eliminate some great interesting options either.
So, I would need it to fit into the following parameters:
* Can get it take out or to go.
* Travels reasonably well.
* Is easy for self service (finger food or easy to serve portions)
* Tastes awesome.
* somewhat close proximity to Sunnyvale, though I could potentially go as far as Palo Alto or San Jose if it's something worthwhile.
Thoughts? Ideas? I'll be forever in your debt.
All in Sunnyvale...Combo appetizer platter from House of Kabobs or DishDash. Samosas from Rajjot. Chicken seekh kabobs from Shah or Shalimar.

re: Melanie Wong
that soulds great too. I'm doubting Dish Dash a bit because it's right by work and its a favorite for folks at work already... so something like King Egg Roll might be something more unique.
Speaking of Milpitas... I noticed driving through there once there seems to be a big Vietnamese presence there? Maybe some great nem nuong or cha gio (along the egg roll line of thinking). thoughts on good sources in Milpitas?
