My 5 Favorite Lunch Spots in (2)

Don’t underestimate this fast-growing Silicon Valley suburb. Sunnyvale’s restaurant scene has really blown up over the last several years, and Sunnyvale is now home to an abundant array of foods to please any craving. Working in Sunnyvale we’ve gotten rather familiar with many of it’s lunch time hot spots, so here are a few of my favorites. You won't see anything fancy on my list, because 99% of the time I’m in a mad rush from meeting to meeting (hopefully without spilling sauce on my shirt).

  1. Dishdash and their trusty drive-through like Dish n Dash location. If you want table service, head to Dishdash, but if you’re on the run and need to grab a quick bite, Dish n Dash is my go-to (although be wary of the long lines right around noon). I highly recommend their fresh squeezed juices and fun smoothie menu...the lemonade-cucumber-mint juice is the best.

  2. Merit Vegetarian Restaurant. A perfect spot for vegetarian and vegan dishes inspired by the cuisine of India, China & Thailand. Merit does not disappoint. I’ve been there several times and have had a variety of dishes from their lunch menu, my favorite being the Gourmet Fried Rice.

  3. In N Out Burger. I’m mildly embarrassed to put this on my list because I’m a devout health food fanatic, but sometimes I just want to indulge. In N Out fries and protein-style burger (that's with a lettuce wrap instead of a bun) hit the spot every time.

  4. Casa Lupe. No trip to Sunnyvale is complete without a trip to Casa Lupe. Tucked away in the Cherry Chase Shopping Center, Casa Lupe can be easy to miss, but it's seriously delicious. Also, its family owned, and who doesn't want to help support local businesses while you stuff your face with chips and salsa?!

  5. Hanamaru. Right next door to Casa Lupe is Hanamaru. Just so dang convenient. Small place, super casual, no frills. But the rolls are fresh and consistent. Highly recommend the Cherry Blossom roll, it’s so pretty to look at you might not want to eat it.
