Last month, I wrote an article about the Main Street Cupertino complex's newest restaurant, Eureka! Today, they are opening their second Silicon Valley location in Mountain View on Castro St. I had the pleasure of attending a soft opening where my meal was complimentary. Here's what I tried.
($10) Rosemary Ruby Red - gin, rosemary, grapefruit, lemon
This is a perfectly refreshing drink for mid Spring. It continues to taste better as the crushed ice melts and the sweet grapefruit flavor mixes in.
($6) Hangar 24
We forgot which type of beer this was. The waiter suggested it as one which tastes closer to a hefeweizen. I thought it was lighter and was less hoppy but still enjoyable.
($9.50) Truffle cheese fries
These are the best fries I've had. They won a non-fry lover like me so bonus points for a conversion. It's all in the melty truffle and havarti cheese sauce.
($11) Smoked Chicken Nachos - chicken, black bean, jalapenos, salsa, guac, sour cream drizzle, and house made chips.
I like how the nachos are layered with toppings so it's not just the to pieces that get soggy while the bottom is plain. You get something with every bite.
($12.50) Jalapeno bacon egg burger
PICKLED JALAPENO. BACON. EGG. Need I say more? Cannot go wrong with those three things on anything, especially a juicy medium rare burger.
($7) Apple Crisp with vanilla ice cream
70% ice cream and 30% hot steaming apple crisp and 100% wonderful.
I really enjoyed both the Eureka locations and highly suggest getting the burgers and truffle fries. In fact, you can enter my giveaway for a $25 gift card so you can try it yourself. Thanks for Eureka for sponsoring this giveaway. There will be two winners. Contest ends April 29. The card can be used at any location and the whole amount must be used in one transaction. Good luck!
