Below are recommendations I have from restaurants I’ve visited this winter in the Bay Area:
Hot Stone Korean Kitchen
2190 N Texas St, Fairfield, CA 94533
Fairfield CA does not have the best food. It is hard to find restaurants that are as good as other major cities in California like San Francisco or LA. I scoured the area to find Korean food and the only place that I liked is Hot Stone Korean Kitchen.
They offer pitchers of soju mixed drinks and a wide array of banchan. I recommend trying out the fried mackerel. If you ever end up in Fairfield CA check out Hot Stone for a hot meal and nice service!
House of Phở
1066 E El Camino Real, Sunnyvale, CA 94087
I prefer pho places that offer substitutions like egg noodles rather than rice noodles and House of Pho has this. The restaurant serves an array of hot and flavorful broth. They also offer boba or bubble tea and can substitute dairy with coconut or almond milk. I tried the red bean smoothie with boba and coconut milk, it was sweet and filling. My table also ordered combination noodles and the dish was expertly seasoned. I can attest that there is super flavorful and addictive food at the House of Pho!
The most flavorful ramen I’ve ever tried at Sake Bomb Sushi!
Sake Bomb Sushi 759 El Camino Real, Sunnyvale, CA 94087
I plan on returning to this restaurant for sure. The broth is so tasty and the noodles taste like they are freshly handmade. I want to bring more people and friends to this restaurant to try out the ramen with me. Memorably delicious!
Try the Ace LA Galbi at Jang Su Jang
3561 El Camino Real #10, Santa Clara, CA 95051
I specifically really enjoy the LA Galbi at Jang Su Jang. I noticed almost every table seated around me also ordered it. This restaurant prepares perfectly salty and sweet LA Galbi. I love how affordable the restaurant is and the nice touches they add to their banchan like fresh apples in the side salad.
