Emelina's 2 2325 El Camino Real, Santa Clara Peruvian • $$

“Great value and good portion of food! The chef's special seafood paella was very delicious and flavorful, with lot of seafood and only $25. Deep fried fish, calamari, and cassava is the second dish I'd recommend, good portion and the onions were even also seasoned! Seafood soup was pretty good and the soup broth was not too salty. The lamb dish and the beef heart skewers were fine, but might have a bit of strong smell if you are sensitive to that. Ceviche was pretty standard. Overall very good value and nice flavor!”

“Fast service, good selection of meats. The price is great for serving size. The meats are split into ones that are cooked when delivered and ones that are raw and you grill yourself. The cooked meats are well prepared and tasty. The variety of side dishes is above average. Heads up that the parking lot is often full and hard to find parking, but that's not on the restaurant as it's part of a plaza.”

The gyoza was standard and it was a slight let down because it wasn't warm, but that's completely on the Uber driver as he had to make a few deliveries on the way. The spicy dragon roll was disappointing, it wasn't spicy at all and the sushi roll's rice didn't appear spot on. The salmon teriyaki was standard and decent. However the miso soup was plain bad, too watery and lacking flavor.”

Croissante 2908 El Camino Real #100, Santa Clara Bakery • $

“Really nice bakery with a lot of tasty stuff. I'll need to come back to try more!As others mentioned, expect a line to get in. It moves fast enough (maybe 10 minutes), but it feels like it's a bit inefficient. My only real complaint is that they could probably get everyone through faster. That said, if you come earlier (like before 8am, or maybe during work hours) I suspect it'll be pretty quiet vs 9:30 on a Saturday!The nice thing about that volume of people is they keep baking, so the stuff you get is really fresh and not running out.They obviously have a lot of viennoiseries, but they've got some other beads and tarts and cakes as well. We ended up dining in (took a bit of time to find a table, and for stuff to come out of the kitchen) getting the French toast and the chicken and croffles. The croffles were 10/10 and the French toast was maybe 9/10. Ordered coffee too, which was "fine", but not the same caliber as the baked goods.We also got a bunch of baked stuff to take home, (kouign amann, croissants, chestnut apple pastry) which was also all excellent. Prices are on the high end, but the quality shows, so it's not outrageous.Anyway, definitely will be coming back here in the future!”

They were out of one though, but what they had made up for it. And I had the breakfast burrito for dinner. It's all about choice. Great place, our 1st time here. We'll be back. And a special shout out to our server: Ashley. Very helpful, friendly, and attentive, but not annoyingly so. ???”

Happy Sushi 3216 El Camino Real #5, Santa Clara Sushi • $$

“I ordered takeout through Uber Eats from this place, so can't comment about the service and atmosphere of this place. I got the spicy dragon roll, gyoza and salmon teriyaki entree. The gyoza was standard and it was a slight let down because it wasn't warm, but that's completely on the Uber driver as he had to make a few deliveries on the way. The spicy dragon roll was disappointing, it wasn't spicy at all and the sushi roll's rice didn't appear spot on. The salmon teriyaki was standard and decent. However the miso soup was plain bad, too watery and lacking flavor.”

“Okay, I have to let the cat out of the bag.Probably one of the best Happy Hour locations in San Jose. Staff is Super friendly and food quality is good. They could expand their cocktails menu but it is not bad. It does get a little busy, so expect a little wait. And probably a bit more busy after my review, but their Happy Hour prices are also the best, no joke!! $6 for personal pizza and a beer together. Sorry but you just cannot be that anywhere else I promise you! Beer alone anywhere else is $6-$8. CPK, Thanks a bunch for always providing a great deal, great service with a smile. See you again soon!!!

Vegetarian options: Definitely good variety for vegetarian options as well”

I would fix two things here - first, from outside there is a wall facing the gas station with a fence and graffiti. I thought it was abandoned when I got here! Second - chicken quesadilla had a touch too much sauce on it.All minor complaints because overall I would rate this Taco Bell really high relative to others. Great job!!”

Their dishes have the right flavor and is not overly salty like at different soft tofu shops. The seafood pancake is also perfectly made with the right crunch on the outside and is not soggy. Their appetizer side dishes are also tasty, filling and can be refilled. Love the fish cake!They accommodate dietary restrictions and I usually order the vegetarian / seafood broth as the broth usually is made with meat.This location out of their Palo Alto, Milpitas, and South San Jose locations is the original and the best.”

“Great pizza spot. I found them on Google maps. Was looking for a slice of pizza. Went inside and was greeted. Asked the gentleman if they sold slices. He advised me no and I thanked him and started to walk out. As I'm walking out. He recommended that I try the personal pizza. I told him I was only looking to have a slice. He explained to me that the personal pizza is almost the equivalent. I asked him the price and he said it was less than $8. So I decided to get a regular cheese.So glad I listened to him and got the personal pizza. I waited 10 mins and ate it in my car. The place is very clean. The pizza was fire. Exactly what I was craving. Super fresh and the perfect thickness of dough and cheese. Highly recommend this place. If the plan cheese was this fire. I can't imagine what their regular pizza is like with toppings. Check them out. It's worth it”
