    Tamarine Palo Alto Exterior Decor

    Tamarine is a popular Vietnamese contemporary restaurant in downtown Palo Alto on busy University Avenue. They focus on small plates and serve food family style. Tamarine features light, but flavor-intensive culinary delicacies of Vietnam. This place is similar to Slanted Door or Xanh in Mountain View. We find the food pretty accessible with many items for mainstream palates. The owners family runs the traditional Vietnamese restaurant Vung Tau in San Jose. Our last visit was in the end of 2014.

    Espetus Churrascaria Restaurant Review

    Posted by Foodnut.com, November 24th, 2014

    Espetus Churrascaria Exterior

    Espetus Churrascaria is a Brazilian steakhouse serving Rodizio style food. They focus on meats straight from the fire brought to your table, continuously through the meal! You can stop the meat parade by flipping the table card to red. They have a salad and hot plate bar with lots of different options including asparagus, bean salad, eggplant, rice, beans, cod, and much more. Do not eat too much of this stuff otherwise you wonder have room for all the meat. Vegetarians should stay away.
    Espetus Churrascaria has locations in San Francisco and San Mateo. We tried the brand new San Mateo location for dinner. It is all you can eat, with lunch going for $25.95 with 7 meat options, $37.95 on weekends. Dinner is $54.95 with 14 meat options. Kids are 50% off. Our last visit was in the Summer of 2014.

    Perbacco Restaurant Review, San Francisco

    Posted by Foodnut.com, October 27th, 2014

    Perbacco San Francisco exterior decor

    One of our favorite Italian restaurants in San Francisco. Perbacco is a popular Italian restaurant in San Francisco’s financial district that opened in 2006. We had been to their sister restaurant next door Barbacco recently, and felt it was high time that we came back to Perbacco. Chef Staffan Terje focuses on Piemontese, Ligurian, and Venetian regional Italian dishes. “Perbacco” translated is an Italian word to accentuate positive comments. Our last visit was in the middle of 2012. Read the rest of this entry »

    Champagne Seafood San Mateo exterior decor

    They closed the Buffet in April 2014 and re-opened, yet again as Champagne Seafood Restaurant in May 2014. The new format is almost identical to the pre-buffet restaurant but has a new Chinese name and some different dishes. They redid the internals and create a large dining room and eliminated the private rooms. You now have to order dim sum from the check off list that comes complete with pictures for dim sum newbies.

    Asian Pearl Peninsula Restaurant, Millbrae – Dinner

    Posted by Foodnut.com, April 29th, 2014

    Asian Pearl Millbrae Exterior Decor

    Asian Pearl Peninsula in Millbrae was at one time, part of the same Culinary Wonderland group that owned the highly rated The Kitchen in Millbrae, hence the same menu. We’ve been to this location a couple times and have found it to offer very good Cantonese Chinese cuisine, in face some of the best in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Richmond Asian Pearl has also served up very good Chinese food. This place stays open till 1am. This review incorporates many dinner visits from 2009 through Late 2011. A separate review is for Asian Pearl Peninsula Dim Sum Lunch.

    Town San Carlos Exterior Decor

    Town Restaurant is a steakhouse serving American comfort food in downtown San Carlos. It opened in 2006 and has gotten positive press, so we figured we would see how it stacks up. Over the years, this restaurant has been consistently busy. Town is definitely a hit with the locals, many of which can just walk over for a meal. Our last visit was in March 2014. It is so busy, we had to make a reservation a week in advance.

    The Kitchen Dinner Restaurant Review, Millbrae

    Posted by Foodnut.com, February 10th, 2014

    The Kitchen Millbrae Exterior

    The Kitchen is part of a restaurant group that owns highly regarded Chinese Cantonese restaurants in California including Asian Pearl Peninsula. We’ve been to most of them and find them pretty good. This review concentrates on dinner.  The food here is pretty authentic Chinese Cantonese food, so some may not like this type of more hardcore cuisine. Do not come here for General’s Chicken or Broccoli Beef. Another review covers The Kitchen dim sum lunch. Our last visit for dinner was in 2014, a meal where we found that their quality has improved. We’d consider this #2 behind Koi Palace. The Kitchen has recently remodeled the dining room, making it much more open, spacious, and modern.
