Burlingame Hyatt Regency for a day and a half

I'll be at the Hyatt Regency in on Bayshore Highway in Burlingame for a very short business trip.

I'd love some recommendations for two dinners and one lunch. I will not have a car, but will go wherever my feet or the Burlingame Trolley will take me. Love ethnic. Reasonably priced.

I've searched the board for recommendations, but am having trouble finding telling what is close enough to be accessible for me.

Thank you in advance for your help!!

    1. The Burlingame Trolley will take you to the downtown area near the Burlingame commuter train station (California Drive/Burlingame Ave). The few blocks around this area comprise a nice walkable neighborhood with many restaurants and shops for browsing.

      Mingalaba (Burmese/Mandarin) gets good recommendations.

      A couple more that come to mind are Il Fornaio, Stella Alpina Osteria, and Straits. There are also many more smaller casual spots.

      When I travel to a new area for business I always use the Search Nearby feature in google maps to get a feel for where things are located near my hotel or work location.

      If you need a quick lunch, Max's Restaurant is basically across the street from your hotel. It's a regional chain, upscale deli/diner style food. Should be good if your going out with a group.

      1. Taste in on broadway for excellent middle eastern. Make sure you check roaming hunger sf for any good trucks. They park near kincaids, not far from you. If you are not wanting to go farther, try viogner or 231 Ellsworth in San Mateo for dinner, and sit at the bar of either. Great bargains for good food, with better variety at 231.

        1. Thank you all so much for the suggestions. Mingalaba sounds wonderful. I've never had burmese food before. That will be a treat!
