San Jose is a mosaic of world cultures — a place where people bring influences from around the globe to create a uniquely cosmopolitan culinary experience. One of the best ways meeting attendees can sample this diversity is through a tasting tour of the city’s global cuisine.

For an authentic bowl of hot ramen, your attendees can stroll into the bustling Mitsuwa Marketplace to Hokkaido Ramen Santouka, founded in Japan in 1988 before expanding to the U.S. They lovingly serve handcrafted traditional recipes in special donburi to maintain the broth’s heat for maximum aroma and taste.

For elevated Cantonese, make your group a reservation at iCHiNA. Designed to provide guests with a Hong Kong fine dining experience, traditional dishes are served with exquisite wine and cocktail lists. This opulent atmosphere has recently introduced virtual reality dining, with audio and visual effects complementing each dish to provide a feast for the senses.

Your attendees can take a “passeggiata” (or “stroll”) beside the Guadalupe River to Paesano Ristorante Italiano. This cozy eatery sits at the entrance to Little Italy and offers authentic Italian and Sicilian cuisine in a classic white tablecloth setting. Heaping dishes of homemade pasta doused in flavorful sauces will delight every palate.

With menu items straight from Portugal’s coast, Pestiscos by ADEGA offers small plates that are big on flavor. This MICHELIN Guide–listed casual eatery highlights the star of every dish with menu categories like Flour & Water, Leaves & Legumes, and Shells & Claws. Specialty cocktails will delight guests with unique flavor combinations — Aletejana features bourbon, brown sugar and lemon juice garnished with Iberico ham.

Colorful food and a patio bedecked with lanterns invite your guests to delight their senses at Phớ Hà Nội San Jose. Located in Little Saigon, this traditional pho restaurant offers specialties like phớ bò (beef noodle soup) or phớ gà (chicken noodle soup), sticky rice and short ribs.

With a delightful array of authentic global cuisine, your attendees will be able to tour the world without leaving California. San Jose’s diverse neighborhoods provide vibrant atmospheres bursting with authentic flavors as well as innovative fusion cuisine. Send your guests to taste the best of San Jose.
