I'm not the biggest fan of Thai food in the world, but City Thai does have some dishes that I really like. My favorites include Seafood Combo and Bamboo Shoot with Chicken. Both are only $7.95 for lunch and that price includes a small bowl of pretty good soup.
You'll like this place - if you are very patient. Waiting 5 minutes for the menu is considered normal. Oh, by the way, there's another 10-minute wait for the check. No, they are not that busy.
PROS: Food is great
CONS: Service is slow
10am Saturday morning is the best time to enjoy those hot, juicy, delicious dim sum when they are fresh out. Other times include 1:30pm on weekdays (it's so crowded at lunchtime, you'll have to wait like half hour to get a table).
PROS: Good Food
CONS: Crowded & noisy
Make a turn from El Camino Real, go through the front gate then the walls on the sides formed by two lines of tall palm trees, drive 2 minutes, park, put on your rollerskates and helmet. Now you are on one of the world's finest rollerskating resorts.
The paved paths are wide and smooth so you can practice various tricks on them. All paths are connected so you can literally go anywhere in the campus. There are plenty of uphills and downhills so you won't easily get bored. If you are thirsty, there's this little Jamba juice nearbe (forgot the exact spot, maybe by the Thorton building?). You can spend a good afternoon playing there.
PROS: Wide, Smooth Trails
CONS: Parking is sometimes a problem
This store has many better-branded bikes: Specialized, K2, Marin, Schwin... Bought my Rock Hopper from them. It was a happy experience. The sales guys are very kind and knowledgeable. They even threw in a 6-month service for free (am I buying a bike or a car?)
Mr Baguette makes the best Vietnamese sandwich I've ever tasted. Personally I think the specials (number 1 & 2 on the menu, with #2 having seasame on top) are the best; #20 is very good too. You don't usually see a long line before the counter, and your order is ready pretty fast.
PROS: Nice Bread
CONS: Parking is a little hard to come by
They have three different courses for you to spin your cart on: two curvy courses for the usual go-carts and a longer one for another larger, faster car which is more fun. Had lots of fun on the smaller cars with a bunch of friends, especially when they put some powerder on the curves so you can spin easier. There's a "no bumping" rule but I just couldn't help doing it. The larger cars, however, are pretty sluggish when you floor the pedal at the starting line, otherwise they are fantastic.
Their fish dumpling is the best. You may also want to try the chick soup noodles.
Only problem is, it's always crowded, and they don't take reservations. Be prepared for 20- to 30-minute waits.
A nice place to have lunch in. The only thing I tried was their "Tokyo Curry" (beef). The beef was overcooked and was dry and a little harsh; mixed with curry, it gives only the taste of "some meat". It's just not the way I like it.
I was surprised by the long line there, because their barbeque beef really wasn't so good; it's a little too dry, some part actually burned. So-so food, hasty service. It isn't worth the wait.
When they expanded the east wing, they simply under estimated how many people would go there; the direct result is lacking of parking space. I went there in a rainy Friday night, driving slowly though the parking lots, hoping to find a spot - any spot -to park. After half an hour of fruitless effort I gave up, and decided not to go there again.
