The Travelodge San Francisco Airport South in this area was pretty cold at night/morning. The heater/cooler works quickly with a thermostat control. The room was very decent and clean, clock radio, mini-coffee maker, iron and board, in room safe for an additional $1/day, free local calls, a very comfortable bed. There was a shower, but no bathtub, the shower door opens out to the bathroom floor rather than into the shower floor after taking a shower - water dripped onto the bathroom floor; free Wi-Fi Internet, the Simmons mattress beds provides a very comfortable sleep. The upgraded room for an additional ...Read More

Fook Yuen

Restaurant

From its very modest-looking exterior, Fook Yuen, located in Millbrae, offers some very good dim sum, as well as lunch or dinner for your taste buds. Don't go too fast selecting items, as the selections come quickly from the women carrying dishes to offer. Upon selecting a dish, a stamp is placed on your bill, along with a thank you from the woman serving. Selecting dishes is a personal preference. I like to stay away from the buns and noodles dishes in this type of setting, as those represent fillers. I'd prefer to leave room for other types of dishes to try and taste. I've never seen chicken siu mai before here, and it tasted quite good. Usually it's only beef or pork and quite salty. The roa...Read More

Hong Kong Flower Lounge in Millbrae has some good Chinese cuisine, offering dim sum, lunch, dinner, and cocktails. We were offered hot towels before our dinner, a nice touch. Keep the towel, as I found it useful to clean my sticky fingers with during the meal.We ordered steamed bass at $20/lb; won ton soup, $11, a disappointment and not recommended; the mixed vegetables, $10, bok choy, American broccoli, and baby corn, was done quite nicely; and steamed rice at $1.70/bowl. The wonton-soup filling seemed like it had ground-up generic meat, lacking a distinct taste and with only bits of green onion in the soup base. There were no other vegetables, there was no distinctive pork, mushroom, nor shr...Read More

Anabelle's, in Millbrae, is a place to come to if you don't mind the extremely slow service. The atmosphere is pleasant, and the food quality is good. We placed our order and saw other customers come in after us and get their food before us. The chicken teriyaki, on the menu's recommended by the chef list $7.95, was actually quite good once it finally arrived. Their shakes are tasty too. But their very poor and slow service turns the overall experience into a do not recommend. Open for breakfast and lunch.

Peter's Cafe

Restaurant | "Peter's Café"

It was after midnight and we wanted to get something to eat, but we were unfamiliar with the area. Millbrae's Peter's Café sign was brightly lit. Like flies in the dark, we wandered over to their restaurant. We both chose our food off their white-board menu and were served by a Korean waitress with a heavy accent, but understandable English. The food was good, and for late-night dining when you're on foot and unfamiliar with the area, this is it. Judging from its decor, this café looks like it's been around since the 1960s.
