California Wet Burrito

Don’t be put off by the generic name and San Jose State-adjacent location: California Wet Burrito is a treasure of a taqueria that also happens to be a student favorite. Get their dry or salsa-drenched California-style burritos, made with french fries instead of rice. Our favorite is the Mazatlan, made with smoky chipotle fish, served dry, but the carnitas and shredded chicken options are also big hits. If you’re with a crowd, forgo the burritos altogether and get an order of their nacho-style fries to eat on the cute outdoor patio strung with colorful papel picado streamers. The restaurant is always busy taking orders, but groups can usually find a spot to sit with no trouble, even on weekend nights.

Bò Né Phú Yên in the Little Saigon mall food court is a little hard to find, but very worth the search.
