Bijan Restaurant - Fremont, CA (Alameda County, California)
Bijan Restaurant is located a couple miles west of I-680 on Mission Blvd. in Fremont. It's in the Lucky Shopping Center behind the ARCO gas station and you need to make a u-turn at the next light if you're coming from the 680 freeway. Bijan Restaurant has belly dancing on Friday nights and it's pretty cool when the belly dancer balances a sword on top of her head while she's dancing!

If you feel like eating Persian food in Fremont, I recommend going to Bijan Restaurant...they have good food, good service and a … (0 comments)

Vinoteca is located in downtown Danville on Prospect Avenue, just around the corner from Starbucks Coffee on Hartz Avenue. Vinoteca features live music several days a week and they have a romantic "wine bar" type atmosphere...a perfect fit for charming downtown Danville.

During our first visit to Vinoteca, we decided to try their "swimmer of the day" fish called "Walu" in Hawaii and Fiji, otherwise known as escolar or butterfish...or super white tuna when served raw as sushi or sashimi.

Leo's Chinese Restaurant - Danville, CA (Contra Costa County, California)

Leo's Chinese Restaurant is located in Danville, California and it's my favorite Chinese restaurant in all of Contra Costa county! The previous restaurant in this location was called DeMing's Asian Restaurant. Their dining room is decorated in the traditional upscale Chinese restaurant decor with "good luck" bamboo and a soothing water fountain at the entry. Service is excellent and their food is yummylicious!
My two favorite dishes at Leo's Chinese Restaurant are their Tangerine Beef and Seafood Combination. If you're ever in the Danville area and craving Chinese food...I highly recommend Leo's Chinese Restaurant!
