Ethnic restaurants are in generous supply from noodle houses in San Jose's Japantown to Mexican feasts in East San Jose. While Silicon Valley has its share of pricey enclaves, small storefront eateries in neighborhoods such as Willow Glen or towns like Campbell can be relied upon for friendly service and solid value.
