Lion Plaza San Jose??

alis Nov 12, 2011 02:07 PM

I moved and haven't been to the San Jose Lion Plaza in a long time...

Is the food court still good, and what places/dishes would you recommend for grazing my way through?

I'm not looking for a meal, just snacking through great Vietnamese food!

    I like the food court at the Grand Century better.

      I'm open to either one (I'd heard Grand Century had gone downhill, be happy if that is not the case). Any recommendations beyond Banh Khot from Vung Tau & pandan waffles?

          alis: I hope that the reports of Grand Century going downhill are untrue. It has been one of my favorite places, especially for the banh khot and pandan waffles as you mentioned but it has been quite awhile since I've visited...

              I meant to mention the sugar cane juice too!
