"I actually just made up the name for this tasty treat. What blows my mind the most is the texture, like a crunchy-pop, with some ponzu, grated radish, and scallions."

"I drive to San Mateo at least once a week for this perfect combo of spicy, sesame and miso broth with sweet ground pork. I always add a little extra nori, too, and if you follow me on Instagram, there's at least ten pictures of this dish. I might have a problem."

"I'm sure the yakitori chef who meticulously mans the bincho grill all night doesn't add salt—it's the sweat dripping from his forehead from all his hard work that's the secret! Get the chicken tail (aka chicken butt), neck, heart, gizzard, liver, skin or beef tongue. "

"Pacific Catch does a fantastic job with poke and has several types on the menu - they're all good. My personal favorite is the original style, it lets the fresh tuna really shine. "

"It's legit here. They have this fried chicken over rice (mochiko chicken), which is the hawaiian version of chicken karage. It's crispy, super flavorful thigh meat, which I love. Also tried several of their spicy musubi, (fried rice-stuffed seaweed). If you wanna make a true poke yourself, you can buy everything at the market here."

"I order it extra spicy—the spiciest they've got! This was the original Santa Ramen before it reopened as Dojo Ramen, and this place is meticulously done now. They fire up the ramen when you order it, so it might take another half hour after you sit but it's worth it. The noodles are cooked perfectly al dente, and there's a great balance of noodles with their amazing broth. They’re also known their tonkatsu, too, that’s extra spicy. I like spicy."

"Keep it simple with the soy broth and order extra menma (bamboo shoots). You must add citron peel, too."

"This is all about greasy spoon, comfort breakfast. Get the ultimate country fried steak platter. Comes with potatoes, eggs, two sweet potato pancakes (or three buttermilk pancakes, french toast or regular toast) and sausage gravy, all for just $11.99. Get it with ketchup and tabasco. And a banana cream pie to top it off. It's open 24 hours."
