El Chavo - Boarded-up

Great Mexican in Tracy CA.

It's close to the east indian strip mall. It's on the corner with big letters. You can't miss the white sign with the gree letters. It's close to city hall.

Great Mexican in Tracy CA.

I had the white menudo (which is hard to find) and it was excellent. My guest had the shrimp cocktail app, and got a shrimp burrito.

It was worth every penny.

Service was excellent.

EJ Malloys

excellent food and they age their meat in their own meat fridge. The ribs rock, as do the fish and chips. Had the chili on a rainy night and it made me feel so good.

I've only been to the one on Broadway. Long Beach has a little gold mine there.

I had a great lunch there today. I had the salmon nicose salad, with a simple ice tea. My sis had the alfreddo with a great house Chard. Then came the chocolate mousse shots, topped with a lemon drop vodka shot.

Wonderful!!!!!!!!!

Good Food in Tracy

Just ate at a place called Saigon. It's a couple of doors down from Bluefish in the strip mall the has the Home Depot.

I had the seafood combo pho and a beer (33 vietnamese beer), my buddy had the lemon grass chicken. Bill came to $21.85

Food was excellent. Some of the best pho I've had in a long while.

Eat there.

Good Food in Tracy

I've been here, in Tracy CA., for a week now.

I've eaten at the Japanese/sushi, place with is two doors down from a Vietnamese place. I think it is called Bluefish. It was great. Wanted to try the Viet place but others wanted to try Bluefish instead. I want to try Saigon. I also noticed Boyongs down the road.

I also got to try a taqueria in the same strip mall as Ace hardware on Tracy Blvd. Fantastic food at fantastic prices. We came when the cooks were taking a break. The food took forever, but we quickly forgave them once the food was served. I was interested in the sushi place. I even saw Japanese guys working there.

Yesterday I ate at this great Mexican place another place I think it starts with a P. I ordered the white menudo (which is rarely served anywhere). It was wonderful. All of the plates we got except for mine was in the $13 range, and worth every cent. Service was better than great too.

Today I tried to get chinese food. Stopped by Mei Mei, but they were closed. So were ended up at Jade Garden. They just started opening on Monday's and also offer delivery. I thought it was fair to good. Service was good, and food came very fast.

Give me all the lowdown on where the good food is.

I have a feeling there is good food all around me, give me the 411, and I'll give you my thoughts

Love you Chowhouders!

Good Food in Livermore?

Okay,

I posted this over a year ago.

Now, I'm moving there to Tracy for a several months. I need to a detailed list of all places good and bad in the whole area.taqueria downtown. I hear Wente is very expensive but great. I hear Cattleman's is fair at best, and so is Sergio's.

I really love eat and make not only authentic, but exotic Asian foods. Is there like a 99 Ranch Market (Asian/Chinese supermaket chain) in the area?

Please let me as much information as possible I'll be there next week..

Please help me feed myself.

Takeshi Ramen in Glendale

I'm from Gardena, and have been to Japan a couple of times.

I don't consider myself a ramen expert.

I love this place. I was there last week for dinner with my girl, and enjoyed it very much.
True, there could have been more veggies, but I had the house special. The broth was nice, and lots of fish & pork. My girl ordered the green tea soba, which was great.

My small Sapporro was a mere $3.50. Service was great...which went a long way.

I still think Umemura in Gardena is the best in the LA area without a doubt..

I think this place is good if you don't want to wait in line, and have a nice inexpensive meal.

Nicky D's

Now, I've been critical in the past, and with good reason.

Stopped by for a pie and a pint of Stella.

It was great.

In fact wonderful.

Had the Nicky D special...and it was fresh, and not greasy.

Nice job Nick
