Mexican in San Jose
I used to eat all over town, Reynoso sisters, Trini's, etc. but haven't been to SJ for many years. Is there anything Mexican in or near downtown SJ?
Mezcal has been pretty good, not great, for sit down Mexican / Oaxacan in downtown San Jose. I haven't been there in a year or two though.
For great Oaxacan, try Monte Alban. 960 S 1st. Their mole can't be beat.
A bit further up in Japantown, Taqueria Corona at 601 N 4th. They have good fried snapper, daily menudo, and birria de borrego (Fri-Sun.)
