The Bay Area is a melting pot of cultures and with that, comes the diverse restaurants in the area. My reviews will reflect the restaurants located in the Bay Area.

Alexander's By the Sea

In early November of last year, Alexander’s Steakhouse in Cupertino introduced their new sister restaurant called The Sea. While Alexander’s specializes in all sorts of high-quality steaks, their new restaurant focuses more on top of the line seafood.


To start off with, I ordered the Togarashi Tuna Tataki. The dish came with six slices of seared tuna with slices of radish, soy avocado and soy vinaigrette. The tuna was extremely tender and seared to perfection. The sauces complimented the wild tuna very well.


I ordered the Seppia (squid) Risotto.


The server warned me that my risotto dish was going to be really savory; he wasn’t kidding. The dish was super rich in flavor and the squid pieces were extremely tender.


Of course, after a nice meal, dessert is probably my favorite part of dinner. But like their other restaurant, Alexander’s Steakhouse, every dinner table gets free cotton candy after their meals. The plus about this place though? We got two mini cupcakes and wafers in addition to the cotton candy.

A sweet ending to a delicious meal.


I found out about this place when they have mentioned in Metro newspaper a couple years ago when I was about 17-years-old. Their Mexican inspired menu contains items like burritos, enchiladas, tacos, and taquitos with an Asian twist to it. With locations from Northern California to Southern California or even Hawaii, this place is well known for their good food and the surfer beach vibe to it.


My favorite item to get here is probably the shrimp tacos, a la carte. I’ve ordered this every time I’ve gone here for the last 5 years. The fresh shrimp, the crunchy cabbage, the light tang of lime and salsa just makes me come back for more.

There’s just something amazing about this restaurant that you have to go check out for yourself.
