Takahashi Market circa 1906

August 11, 2009

Boyfriend and I took my parents to the Giants game on Saturday to celebrate my Mom’s birthday.  I knew my parents would prefer Japanese food rather than overpriced stadium food so we stopped at Takahashi Market in San Mateo to grab lunch.

I love these little Mom & Pop shops!  They have fresh shipments of Hawaiian food every Thursday and tons of Hawaiian plate lunches on their menu.  My Mom went with the saba shioyaki over rice with wakame salad on the side.

My Dad tends to order unagi every time we go out for Japanese food.  It’s one of his favorites!  He also went with the wakame salad on the side.

I went with the misoyaki butterfish which was excellent!  Mine came with a few edamame for some reason and I got wakame salad too!

Boyfriend is a true carnivore and went with the kalua pig and rib combo with rice and chose kimchee as his side.  I had a bite of the ribs and really liked them!

Takahashi Market has been around for over 100 years now!!  They must be doing something right to still be in business. : )  I would definitely go back to pick up lunch.  The prices are reasonable and the people are really friendly.
