Dishcrawl — The Funnest Way to Try Out the Best Santana Row Has to Offer


I tried out 4 new restaurants in Santana Row Monday night! Oh, and I only paid $40 ;D

Such is the beauty of Dishcrawl =] You get to try out appetizers, dishes and desserts at restaurants famous for certain specialties without dishing out the big bucks. I love it!

The evening got off to a good start with a lovely stroll around Santana Row — the rich sure know how to do spectacular decor!

And now, for the food =3 Check out the delectable dishes I got to try out!

First, we all met at LB Steak*

There, we were treated to…

Tuna sashimi bruschetta and breaded eggplant with goat cheese

And potato chips made from roots! By far the tastiest chips I’ve ever had =3

Root chips

Next, we walked over to El Jardin.

 

 

Sangria & margaritas

 

Tilapia ceviche

Don’t remember what these were called ><;

Then on to Rosie McCann’s for some hearty Irish food!

 

Roasted portobello mushroom, fish & chips, and a slider =3

Last, but not least, we ended on a sweet note at the Olin Avenue Market =]

Gelato!

Know what the best part is? There’s one of these babies at least once a week! Check out their website to find one near you and go taste some amazing food =3 I’m considering the Cognac Tasting and Food Pairing one ;D

*I “borrowed” (winking, wink) most of these pictures from Dishcrawl’s Facebook album since they turned out so much better than the ones I took O=] Credits go to the wonderful Ms. Cindy Garcia.

Pedro’s, the Cool Bar / Restaurant Down the Street From Work


I discovered the coolest place upon joining Astreya. Pretty much every week, my recruiting colleagues go out for drinks and free food at Pedro’s Restaurant & Cantina.

 

This place is so chill! The outside is super pretty and you see local engineers from Intel and whatnot hanging out outside, taking in some sun with their dogs.

I really love how this place looks. I’ve never been to Mexico, but I imagine this must be what rich people’s homes in Mexico must look like (wonder where I get that from — Zorro maybe?)

 

The inside is really well decorated too! Check out the lobby…

 

 

I kind of forgot to take pictures of the free buffet (there are animal style fries in there, some chicken wings…. ) but here’s the bar instead!
This place is great for cheap drinks with coworkers after you get off! And their margaritas are only ~$5 on Wednesdays O=] (they have strawberry margaritas! Yum =3)
