The German Café
The German Café is a popular neighborhood restaurant that serves home cooked and freshly prepared authentic German food in a humble atmosphere. Located on a side street east of Highway 92 with limited parking, expect to wait for your meal, as it is a popular café with relaxed service and only 20 tables. Try the Jaegerschnitzel, rue en on a pretzel roll, German potato salad, onion schnitzel and cucumber salad, and German chocolate cake.
Angelika’s German Imports
Angelika’s German Imports is a German–owned restaurant offering made-from-scratch cuisine. The property also carries German market goods for purchase. Angelika’s is located in a strip mall on Fry Boulevard, which is easy to miss if it’s not on your radar. Decorated with décor from Germany, the atmosphere is complemented by delicious smells and tastes that are reminiscent of the European countryside. Try the frankfurter with potato salad, gerkin salad in sour cream, veal loaf, and leberkäse.
Serving authentic Mexican food in a mostly take-out atmosphere, Rodolfo’s is quick, and the price will not put a hole in the wallet. The restaurant resembles a California-style Taquería and is always busy with customers. Drive thru is also an option here, but on-site dining is where the free chips are served with two different types of salsa. From the menu, order burritos, enchiladas, fish tacos, and carne asada tacos.
Indochine is an unassuming Vietnamese restaurant located in a strip mall adjacent to a tattoo parlor. The chef is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Academy and is said to visit with customers at their table and help with any menu questions. Portions are generously served, and the ingredients used are fresh. Order the crab cheese puffs, beef and lemon grass noodles, pork and egg roll rice noodle bowl, tofu curry, and phở soup.
Tanuki Sushi Bar & Garden
Tanuki Sushi Bar & Garden is a local favorite because of the food and special attention given to customers by the owner, Maggie. With a recent space expansion, the restaurant also offers patio dining, although don’t expect anything glitzy. Enjoy outdoor dining or watch the sushi chefs behind the bar preparing freshly flown-in fish. From the menu order the miso soup, Vegas roll, teriyaki chicken and vegetable tempura, and soft shell crab sushi roll.
Sunna’s Korean Restaurant
Sunna’s Korean Restaurant is a no-frills restaurant located in a strip mall, serving authentic Korean food. The restaurant serves nothing with MSG, and the staff is friendly and efficient. Should any questions arise on Korean fare, the server is available with an answer. Sunna is the owner and cooks all the food herself. This is an intimate gesture offered to those who are not in a hurry. From the menu, order dumpling soup, bibimbap, bulgogi, tteokbokki and daeji-bulgogi.
