Asked at Town & Country Village. Question and interviews by Christina Dong.

Jessica Hughes

"There's a new taqueria on Middlefield. ... We go to Tofu House a lot. I mean, the amount of food you get ... you could even eat one of their appetizers as a meal if you wanted to."

Alexander Corrothers

"The (Village) Cheese House makes pretty decent sandwiches."

Peter Weck

East Greenwich Place, Palo Alto

"Lyfe Kitchen is definitely one of our faves. And Lulu's — that's probably one of our most frequented places."

Gerardo Garcia

Park Street, Redwood City

"It's pretty hard to find anything with those two words, 'cheap' and 'cuisine,' in the same sentence. ... Chinese food, I guess. And Pasta Pomodoro. ... It comes down to portions."

Theresa McNulty

"Delfina ... (is) really good. There's also this new place called Terun on California Avenue. And Lulu's."
