Help in San Jose

roxie Apr 11, 2012 05:18 PM

Two Oakland hounds are heading to San Jose for a conference. We will be @ The Doubletree near the airport. Any ideas as to where to get good or very good food in the area? We will have a car so can drive.

          Blue Line Pizza in Campbell isn't too far away.

            Oakland has no indian remotely like south bay indian. Catch aachi appakadi, and real ice cream right behind. Or Anjappar Chettinad. Don't be put off by the bad yelp reviews. These places are _very_ authentic.

              If you like Indian, near Real Ice Cream in Santa Clara is Dosa House (try the paper masala dosa) and Kabab N Curry's (everything in this mom-and-pop place is delicious, but their naan is the ultimate).

              Try San Pedro Square Market downtown. Has some good food options like neopolitan pizza and great variety, plus a bar and a wine bar.

                The place I miss most from when I was working down there is Martins West.

                The Vietnamese food courts are like nothing we have in Oakland.
