Fremont's 7 Hidden Gem Restaurants

To make this list, the food has to be fresh, not greasy, not over salted and authentic in flavor. I'll give you the winner and runner up if any by category and specifics about what to try there.


Mexico Tipico

Been a fan of this place since 2001. At one point I know all the waitresses, but then they changed location and COVID hit and they had a lot of turnover in the wait staff. I love a lot of items on the menu, and prefer the black beans to the refried beans. My go to item is the Filete de Pescado which is served in a casserole dish with lots of butter and garlic. Show them the photo below to make sure you get the right dish as they have many ways of serving, and if you like margarita's try the Cadillac Margarita. Another fan favorite is the green chicken enchilada.

  • Cadillac Margarita

Filete de Pescado

  • Green Chicken Enchiladas - another long time favorite


Le Moose Crepe Café

I rediscovered this place the last 2 years. I've mostly happy with this place, but every now and then they get too generous with the salt. My favorite items are:

  • Green Curry

  • Red Curry

  • Drunken Noodles

  • Basil Fried Rice


MJ Sushi

I've taken so many people to this sushi place off of Stevenson and everyone loved. Even my mom, who didn't eat fish, enjoyed their vegetarian Mango Secret Roll. It was the last meal she enjoyed while on Hospice. For sure try these favorites

  • Yellowtail Jalapeno

  • Monster Roll

  • Warrior's Roll

  • Volcano Roll

  • Chirashi **1

  • Gyoza

  • Miso Soup

  • Mention my name or don't and you'll get a free beer - my favorite is the Asahi. Served perfectly cold.


Din Ding Dumpling House

My favorite place for authentic Chinese food. Been going here for about 5-6 years. They will be re-opening their Fremont location soon. Currently going to their Union City location. You'll love the:

  • Cucumber Salad

  • Shrimp and Pork Spicy Wonton

  • Hot and Sour Soup

  • Chow mein (chicken or vegetable)

  • Mongolian Beef

  • ZhaJiang Noodles

  • Sauteed String Beans

  • Garlic Spinach

  • Fish with Black Bean Sauce

Pearl Bay Restaurant

My favorite place for dim sum in Fremont.

Definitely try their:

  • Har Gow

  • Steamed Chives Dumpling

  • Siu Mai

  • Coconut Black Sesame Dumpling - haven't seen it offered many places.

  • Chow fun

  • Portuguese egg tart

  • Fried Sesame Ball

  • Chinese Broccoli

  • Rice Noodle Shrimp

  • Ginger and Chicken Bun


Momo & Kebab

I've been here only twice, and I liked the food and service, but they could improve on their consistency. I ordered the same items I felt they were different dishes.

  • Chicken Sekuwa - loved the lentil side dish that came with this.

  • Nepalese Chicken Curry

  • Butter Naan


Bronco Billy's Pizza Palace I haven't found a better place in Fremont, but am waiting for Slivers to open hopefully this year. At Bronco's I usually get the:

  • Prairie Pie Special - artichokes, tomatoes, and fresh garlic.

  • Stage Coach Special - Artichokes, fresh garlic, chicken, pesto, and tomatoes.
