    ABC Seafood

    It's actually in Foster City, which I always considered a subdivision of San Mateo *tease* It's an Asian menu. Their dim sum lunch is mind boggling. They have tanks of live fish and lobsters so you know it's going to be good. It doesn't look like much being in a shopping center/strip mall but food is outstanding.

    there is a good place that is open 24 hours - Heidi Pie's on El Camino in San Mateo. They serve Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner 24/7 - it's like an upscale Denny's - but way better than Denny's (I hated Denny's, but love Heidi Pie's)... Good place to hit up after a night on the town - AWESOME PIES!

    1) Kaz Teriyaki grill on 4th. Across from Wells Fargo. Its a take-out place, but its the best teriyaki chicken i've ever had

    2) Santa on B Street. The best ramen you'll ever have. If your definition of ramen is that freeze dried stuff from Safeway, you're in for a treat. Real ramen is amazing.

    3) Pancho Villa on B Street. Awesome burritos, tacos, whatever.

    For more upscale dining Viognier (on top of Draegers on 4th) is pretty solid.
