Red Hot Chili Pepper is a restaurant in San Carlos where one can explore just how spicy food can possibly be. It's a place to explore and test your own pain threshold. Red Hot Chili Pepper isn't the famous American rock band, but rather an Asian fusion restaurant that loves to serve spicy food. ...

At Off The Grid at the Belmont Caltrain station, I saw Paddy Wagon Sliders, a dedicated food truck serving sliders. It has a whimsical theme of prison food, with the truck decked out to look sort of like a paddy wagon the police may use. It even has a stereotypical jailbird prisoner on it. The menu is chock-...

Your last two major studio albums have been deemed classics, and the expectations for what you do next is high. What do you reveal to the world next, and is it even possible not to disappo...

With the growing popularity of fusion cuisine, I decided to eat at a food truck that was at the weekly Off The Grid food truck rotation near the Caltrain in Belmont. The truck was called Mobowl; it's quite similar to the restaurant Asian Box. At the truck, one selects a protein followed by a choice of...

America has quite the fascination with barbecue. It is probably one of the most recognizable cuisines of America. The sad part, however, is that Belmont and San Carlos has an absence of barbecue -- very few restaurants serve it, and even fewer are wholly barbecue places. Thankfully 3 Pigs BBQ exists; it is one of the few barbecue restaurants...

Kabul Afghan Cuisine is the sort of restaurant you would go to if you needed to hibernate. The plates are rich and full of just so many crisscrossing flavors that it's almost overwhelming. I barely ate any breakfast the morning after eating there for dinner. It's painful -- it really is, especially...

Being one of the only real sports bars in San Mateo, I decided to head over to The Field Club. Since it was one of the newer restaurants in San Mateo, it intrigued me. Its decor makes it appear as though it was some furnished hunting lodge adorned with sports memorabilia. It was a refreshing feel compare...

Another burger joint... I never thought it would come to this. In-N-Out, Five Guys, Jack In the Box, and McDonald's just weren't enough. I was tired of seeing the ridiculously numerous facades advertising greasy patties and cheap, gooey cheese-ish cheese, so I decided to try Bistro Burger in San Carlos....

After the tragic loss of The Crepe Stop (repose en paix) it has been difficult to find another creperie. After being starved of the French delicacies for far too long, I did some hunting and eventually stumbled upon Lily’s Creperie. The creperie is situated on De Anza Boulevard in San Mateo, only a ...

While not a sports bar, the TVs showing Wednesday night basketball and the obvious assortment of alcohol makes it seem almost like one. While odd in this manner, The San Carlos Bar and Grill is spectacular in all others. The restaurant, located on 648 El Camino Real, is one of the best seafood...
