Aqui Cali-Mex, Silicon Valley Lunch Restaurants

Sometimes you go out for adventure and don't always get the expected results.  Yet the adventure is successful. Why is this?

I went to a casual lunch yesterday with an group of Work from Home Consultants (of assorted professions) to a great restaurant in Campbell.  It is not a new restaurant, as the restaurant story started in 1994 (as stated on their website).
 And, the restaurant has different locations in Willow Glen, Blossom Valley and with Cupertino opening this month (March 2010).  When I browsed their menu online, many of their creations are unique, organic, and cater to diets like the 'gluten-free'. 

The restaurant is very accessible in downtown Campbell, with good amount of seating, and with the Saddle Bar (with Margaritas and Sangria) connected to it. Check their website for the awesome personal story behind opening the Saddle Bar.  It is a self-service restaurant where you order your own choice. They do have the daily special entrees available to pick from.  A variety of different salsas and sauces to choose is near where you pick up your entree. The special entrees are more expensive, there are affordable smaller choices - depending on your tastes.  

A couple of us ordered the Monday special,  Spinach & Artichokes Enchilada with Polenta, and neither of us had the particular taste for it. We agreed that it must have been the spice used in it.  We do (very much) want to return and try the many other menu items.  The burrito and tacos were very tasty.  The environment was casual and active - although you could linger at your table after lunch if you wanted too.  

Additionally, this was a successful lunch adventure, and fun to try new taste items.   During the warmer weather, there is seating at outside tables.  And, the Aqui Cali-Mex is open on weekends - I look forward to try some of their weekend menu tastes.  

Try it!  Aqui Cali-Mex, Downtown Campbell, on the main street, 201 E. Campbell Ave, (408) 374-2784  A great bistro - for something a little different.
