Tous Les Jours bakery [Santa Clara and Dublin]

Tous Les Jours is like Paris Baguette , a French Korean style bakery. The first location in bay area is in Santa Clara and now they just open a new one in Dublin.

I like TLJ much better than Paris Baguette, the pastry are much tastier and better.

Where to get fresh Sapota fruit?

The one I'm interested is an Indonesian version of Sapota, called sawo in Indonesia.
I spoke to the owner of Bambu, she mentioned of grocery store in downtown San Jose, but she wouldn't give me specific name.

I went there and seen the line and decided not to bother. Had few of the onigillly and moffle waffle, other than that, too crowded to wait anywhere.

If you plan to come tomorrow / Sunday, come very early. Don't expect to park in Japantown Garage, park on the street.

Donut Delight Oriental Pastries, Union City

I've been coming to this place for a dimsum or Burma food on weekends. Come on Sunday, after 9am, they have some special menus that are delicious.
Fish Noodle Soup, or Chicken coconut noodle soup are good, prefer the fish one though.
The shrimp salad is good also.

cake emulsifier in bay area?

I don't know any place near SF, but might worth a try in Pacific Supermarket in Daly City.

You can also get it online: http://www.efooddepot.com/products/ko...

I saw few months ago in Lion Supermarket in Saratoga Ave, San Jose.

- Indian Mee Goreng, Singaporean style. ( I havent tried it yet )
- Lontong Cap Gomeh, see picture
- Nasi Goreng Jawa ( see picture ), my comment in other post
- special of the day on Saturdays or Sundays

The Lontong Cap Gomeh with sambal terasi is good!

Best/most interesting food in San Ramon/Danville/Dublin for a visitor from LA?

If you're in Pleasanton and looking for desserts / ice cream try Meadowlark Dairy in downtown Pleasanton

http://www.meadowlarkdairy.com/

It's a drive through dairy, they serve soft-serve, my favorite is Orange Vanilla. It's been there since 1960s.

Padi Indonesian in San Leandro

The pictures were Lontong Sayur and Bihun Goreng, both are breakfast item. Their Bubur Ayam Betawi , breakfast only, is good! I also ordered Nasi Goreng Jawa, I don't think its listed, which is good also.

Their Empek2 Palembang is good, its a fish cake fried , with sauce, not spicy. Rendang is also good...

On Some Saturdays they also have bacang ketan ayam, sticky rice with chicken wrapped in bamboo leaves, its good!
