Off-the-beaten-path pho and bun bo hue restaurants

For Bun Bo Hue, I think Ca Mau in San Jose and New Ca Mau in Santa Clara are better than Bun Bo Hue An Nam. An Nam is really good, but I prefer Ca Mau's Bun Bo Hue.

For Pho, try Pho Ha Noi on Capitol Expressway in San Jose.

Need recs near Fairmont in San Jose

Another local coffee shop: Philz Coffee is a couple blocks away from the Fairmont. If you're into dark roasts, Ether is really good.

I haven't been to Hanuman Thai yet, they just opened this year. House of Siam has been in downtown for years. House of Siam is ok but I would choose Siam over E&O any day tho.

Quick bite very close to HP Pavillion in San Jose?

How about Poor House Bistro at 91 S Autumn St? It's only 2 blocks away from the Arena (still not used to calling it HP Pavillion). They serve New Orleans-type food. I've been there many times and I like the Oyster Po' Boys
