McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood (Downtown San Jose)

On Christmas Day, we went to downtown San Jose to catch a movie. Coming out, we were a bit hungry. But there weren’t many restaurants open on Christmas Day down there. The only two we found within a couple of blocks of the theater was McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood, and The Grill. Both are on the $$$ side but we weren’t feeling like meat so we chose M&S.

The place was busy but we were seated right away. Their menu was simple – a large page of mostly seafood. Annie went for the skewer of grilled shrimp and scallop while I went for the cedar plank salmon.

Tokushima do-Henkotsu Ramen (West San Jose)

Went to the Tokushima do-Henkotsu Ramen restaurant yesterday for dinner. It is located in a little mall on Saratoga Avenue near Hwy 280 in west San Jose, right next to the Mitsuwa Marketplace. We’ve eaten here before, but wanted to introduce a friend of ours to this place.

We got there a little after 6 pm – traffic was pretty bad as it was rush hour on Friday – but we were able to find a table. The place is even smaller than Ramen Halu. Lucky we got a table right away because people who came after us had to wait.

Hong Kong Saigon Seafood Restaurant (Sunnyvale)

Some friends of ours had recommended the Hong Kong Saigon Seafood Restaurant in Sunnyvale as a place to go for good Hong Kong-style noodles. I Googled them up and found they were also known for their dim sum. So we called up a couple of our friends and went there for lunch.

The restaurant is located in a little strip mall off of Lawrence Expressway, north of 101. Turn left when you see the Shell station and right into the mall. We arrived at 1 pm on a Saturday and there was a line out the door. Inside, a woman was busy taking names, assigning numbers, and yelling out the numbers of parties whose table was ready. We were seated after 10 minutes.
