Great Asian Food Malls

By Stett Holbrook


WHATEVER you call them—minimalls, strip malls, shopping centers—these places contain some of the best Asian dining in Silicon Valley. Here are the five that top the list.

Cupertino Village A pleasant place to walk around, and an even better place to eat around, Cupertino Village has everything from a Hong Kong-style coffee shop to Korean barbecue. Corner of North Wolfe and Homestead roads, Cupertino.

Grand Century Mall The food court is like a mall within a mall and filled with a dozen or so cheap and good Vietnamese restaurants. 1001 Story Road, San Jose.

Lion Plaza Vietnamese food paradise on earth. 1818 Tully Road, San Jose.

Milpitas Square There's a reason the massive parking lot is so crowded at lunch. Asian food of almost every stripe is available here and much of it is delicious. 190 Barber Lane, Milpitas.

Ulferts Center Small but mighty mall featuring mainly Chinese restaurants with a Thai and Malaysian restaurant thrown in. 660 Barber Lane, Milpitas.
