Growing up the daughter of a Chef – I know good food.  Living in our beautiful Bay Area – I have good food all around me.

I thought I would share some of my favorite food spots – please share yours too!


Let’s start with the important stuff – the sweet stuff.

Dear lord my favorite place for sweets is ROMOLO’S CANNOLI at 81 37th Avenue in San Mateo.  They have THE BEST CANNOLI I’ve ever had.  I implore you to go.

I LOVE frozen yogurt – it could be an addiction – but I am ok with that.  One of my favorite places is YUMI YOGURT at 3955 South El Camino Real in San Mateo or 947 El Camino Real in Redwood City.  Man do these guys know what portions should look like – buy a small and bring a friend!

Cake.  Mmmmm Cake.  If this testionmial doesn’t sing – I don’t know what will – but I had my wedding cake made at Copenhagen Bakery & Café at 1216 Burlingame Avenue in Burlingame.  Oh My Goodness, bring your sweet teeth – as my mom would say – because everything in there is divine!


One of my favorite meals of the day – especially in the morning.  I love MY BREAKFAST HOUSE at 1137 Laurel Street in San Carlos.  Man do they make a mean raisin bread French toast!


My hubby and I have lunch dates and one of our favorite spots is THE AMAZING WOK at 1653 Laurel Street in San Carlos.  It’s super affordable, the food is delicious and they move quick so you can get back to work.

If you have cash on hand, our second favorite lunch date spot is SANCHO’S TAQUERIA at 3205 Oak Knoll Dr in Redwood City.  Terrific fish tacos, tasty burritos –  hits the spot every time.

One of my quick lunch spots  when I’m on the go is also at the Emerald Hills Shopping Center it’s SPEEDERIA PIZZA (with two locations, one at 711 Laurel Street in San Carlos and the other at 3201A Oak Knoll Drive in Redwood City.)  Pizza by the slice, delicious thin crust pizza – I’m drooling just thinking about it.

Guess I like Italian food.  But one of my favorite restaurants for dinner is San Remo’s at 1152 San Carlos Avenue in San Carlos.  Awesome soup, pasta and of course – PIZZA!

Now if you’re in the mood to eat – one of my favorite spots is RAINBOW PIZZA at 112 Crystal Springs Shopping Center in San Mateo.  They have so great food and portions fit for a Greek God!

Now for my ultimate dinner treat.  Hands down SHIKI BISTRO at 825 Laurel Street in San Carlos (man does my hometown downtown have the best food!).  My husband took me there for our wedding anniversary and it was hands down the best dinner we’ve ever had!  And we love food.  Great atmosphere but better yet – some of the most creative sushi I’ve had ever!  It was like the first time I had sushi – amazing!

There are just a handful of my favorite culinary treasures in San Mateo County.  Please let me know what your favorite spots are – I love to try new places and cuisines.

Bon Appétit – Sabrina

  1. This is great, thanks Sabrina! Absolutely agree with San Remos and Shiki Bistro. The best sweet spot- hands down- is Pamplemousse in downtown Redwood City. Amazing pastries, desserts, and more. Aesthetically pleasing and most importantly- deeeelicious!
    Have you tried Cuisinett on San Carlos Avenue? The steaks are beautifully cut and my recent meal there was so clean and healthy. I wasn’t super jazzed about the informal order-at-the-counter-service, but the quality of the food is top notch.
