After the Hike: Local Favorites

Mudai Ethiopian Restaurant The food tastes good. The ethiopean ber they have is good too. But dont ask me what happened the next morning :-P
Poor House Bistro Fried Oyster Po boy is legit!
91 S Autumn St, San Jose CA — (408) 292-5837
The Breakfast Club at Midtown Delicious chorizo hash, coffee cake, red velvet pancakes. Bre, the bartender, made one of the best bloody marys with basil and cucumber!
Henry's Hi-Life Visit this San Jose landmark for some baby back ribs. As seen on Travel Channel’s Man v. Food Nation.
Jake's of Willow Glen Wings are better than Wingstop. That's right, I said it.
1074 Lincoln Ave, San Jose CA — (408) 287-7960
San Pedro Square Market 2 Hours Free Parking. Park in the garage on San Pedro Street and validate at the bar.
Aqui Cal-Mex I don’t understand why this place was fully packed. It was one of the worst food I had in a long time. Margarita on the rocks wasn’t bad. I guess people go there for the drinks. Food is disgusting!
1145 Lincoln Ave, San Jose CA — (408) 995-0381
Back A Yard Caribbean American Grill Oxtail and jerk chicken combo is delicious. My girlfriend had the salmon and was absolutely beside herself at how amazing it was.
80 N Market St, San Jose CA — (408) 294-8626
Cafe Rosalena worst coffee drinks...bleh!
1077 The Alameda, San Jose CA — (408) 287-2400
Taiwan Restaurant The fried eggplant appetizer wit garlic sauce is delicious!
1306 Lincoln Ave, San Jose CA — (408) 289-8800
Good Karma if you don't know anything about these food, just trust her! ;) delicious!
37 S 1st St, San Jose CA — (408) 294-2694
Teske's Germania Jalapeno cheese stuffed pretzels...Oh. My. God.
255 N 1st St, San Jose CA — (408) 292-0291
Ike's Love And Sandwiches Gluten free bread, most sandwiches can be made vegan, plenty of meat (if that's your thing), this sandwich place has options for everyone. And they are all delicious.
Zona Rosa Congratulations Susan! Enjoyed my first visit to your restaurant, will be back again soon! Loved everything but my favorite was the chicken enchilada!
Ludwig's German Table Best German food in the South Bay and excellent selection of German beers. Don't forget to order one of the amazing pretzels (they're fresh and hot)!
Souvlaki Greek Skewers The lamb souvlaki and the baklava are excellent. The falafel souvlaki is a good option for vegetarians.
577 W Alma Ave, San Jose CA — (408) 289-1452
Freshly Baked Eatery Cash only, only open lunch during the week. Sooo worth it.
152 N 3rd St, San Jose CA — (408) 298-9370
Falafel's Drive-In Banana milkshake is made with real bananas. Yum!!
Bill's Cafe Parking sucks. There's a residential street (McDandiel) around the corner with lots 'O parking though.
302 N Bascom Ave, San Jose CA — (408) 287-2455
Ike’s Love & Sandwiches The sandwiches are amazing and the employees are super-friendly. Parking is a challenge, but worth it.
