San Mateo and Burlingame is a fantastic foodie haven! It is especially known for its prolific selection of fabulous sushi bars, Izakaya shops, and traditional Ramen houses. If you have never tried authentic ramen, I highly recommend visiting Santa Ramen, Ramen Dojo, or Ramen Parlour for a unique traditional Japanese dining experience. Additionally, Wayurika is a very famous Michelin-starred Japanese restaurant a short drive from downtown (book well in advance!).
For authentic California dining, you must visit 31st Union in downtown San Mateo. Everything on the menu, including beer and wine, is sourced from California. The restaurants highlights many wonderful local farmers, and the food is excellent.
My husband and I are avid foodies, and can tell you things on most of the restaurants in and around San Mateo and Burlingame. Whatever you are craving, I can help you find! Indian, Vietnamese, Thai, Burmese, Chinese, Korean, French, Italian, Pizza, Hamburgers.... just ask!
There is off-street parking if you have a car, outside the front our our house. My location is very convenient to all modes of transportation (BART, Bus, Caltrain, freeways, airport).

I am an Aussie and my hubby is American. I love to entertain, and I love having friends and family visiting. Our home is very relaxed, easy going & busy too! I love all that family involves; laughter of kids, warm smells of house baked desserts and good food, good wine, wonderful conversation & of course, quiet time with a book curled up on the couch. Both my husband and I are full-time executives working in Silicon Valley.
I love cooking, travel, reading books, food and wine and outdoor activities like running, golf, tennis etc. I love meeting new people. I like to have a relaxed atmosphere at home, am easy going but appreciate open communication, respect and integrity.
I look forward to hosting you. Safe Travels.
