Rumors – Santa Clara, CA

After the intense Lady Gaga concert, everyone was pretty hungry from the dancing (and the fact that most of the girls came straight from work) so we decided to go out for a late night meal. A decided to take us to Rumors because she didn’t want to deal w the crowd in downtown San Jose. Situated near a Safeway in Santa Clara; was Rumors~

A little korean karaoke, bar, restaurant. The place was empty! It was almost midnight on a Tuesday; but for a late night eatery—- not a good sign is it? The menu is a simple one page laminated cardboard.

We started off with:
2 orders of fries. Just your regular Mc Cain fries with ketchup for a whopping $7.99. Isn’t that a little ridiculous? I guess at midnight, we cannot be too picky about how much we are willing to pay for food.
.
Kalbi $15.99
Decent beef short ribs. I won’t say this is great but it is ok.
.
Kimchi & Tofu – $13.99
I am not a big fan of tofu but the kimchi was good. It was warm with bits of meat, onions and stuff in it. Awesome for a late night snack w a beer.
.
Budae Jiigae – $14.99
Unlike the pretty tasty version from Toyose, this is half the size and less flavourful. It doesn’t have as much “bean” taste and more like regular instant kimchi ramyun. Not bad but not great.
.
Potstickers – $7.99
This review is getting a little depressing isn’t it? It gets worse with this potstickers. The insides were mushy and had unidentifiable ingredients. And the dough was really hard. At this point, I was just snacking on the pricey fries.
.
Seafood Pancake – $14.99
This was interesting; there was sweet potato in it. I never had seafood pancake with sweet potato but I liked it. The bad… Barely any seafood and way too doughy.

Total damage – $94 excluding drinks n tip.
Personal rating – 2.5 out of 5 stars (Below Average)
Service is good. Good place for a late night korean if you do not want McDonalds or Burger King; because they open till 2 am. Otherwise don’t even bother.
