I have been in San Jose the last week exploring the city with the tourism board and discovered the city is full of delicious finds!! Every single dish I tasted this past week blew me away in some way. The culinary scene in San Jose is not to be missed – you are doing yourself a disservice by not eating here.

You can actually browse all the delicious food by the hashtag #SanJoseEATS on Instagram and find your next meal inspiration – and don’t forget to tag your own food photos in the city with the hashtag.

 

LB Steak

Located in the trendy Santana Row area, LB Steak is a trendy spot for happy hour or even an upscale sit down menu.

My favorite dish is the 24K dessert – Loaded with bacon, a brownie, 24K gold, ice cream, and sauce choices, this is going to curb any sweet tooth.

Left Bank

Also located in Santana Row, Left Bank is where you go for your French fix. Some of you may know this about me but I loathe blue cheese – even the smell is unbearable. However, I did try the fondue at Left Bank and it was the best dish in my opinion – and it did have a mixture of cheeses, including blue cheese. My second favorite dish was the mussels.

Oveja Negra

Located in Santana Row inside the Hotel Valencia, I went through quite the culinary journey here at Oveja Negra.

I did try many of the dishes on the menu and was so happy about the selections.
