Eastridge Center, the heart of East San Jose, has always been THAT shopping center. And what I mean by THAT shopping center is that it’s always been that place where you grew up with your parents dropping you off on the weekends so you can hang out with your friends. It’s where you go for first dates when you were 16 and shopping for nearly every occasion whether it was prom or your first job interview. Or just to eat and spend time with family, and maybe just going to the gym!
Well, your favorite center just got a make over! Eastridge Center is now better than ever, with renovation done inside and out! There are over 150 stores and events happening DAILY. There are also five murals all over the center, designed by different California artists. Grab your IG husband- these make the perfect spot for your next OOTD 😉
FUN FACT: Eastridge Center used to have a skating rink in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Now in an effort to bring the whole community together, Aloha Roller Rink is doing a pop up now until January 13th. Aloha Roller Rink used to be a San Jose hangout until 2014 so what do you say…? Let’s make rollerskating cool again!
Keep scrolling to see what my day looked like at Eastridge Center!
Rollerskating with some of the girls from @TheHaloHaloCollective! From left to right, @msnerriss, @kimiko.marie, @abbie.fontanilla.
Shout out to Sid @GoldenBoy650 for being everyone’s IG husband!
My favorite spot to eat here is Angkorian Grill, which has honestly been there forever and shows no signs of ever leaving. I highly recommend for the best Cambodian BBQ in East San Jose!
Shopped at one of my favorite stores for basics- Cotton On! Literally my entire outfit from head to ankle is Cotton On and less than $100! I also got a camo tote bag to be environmentally friendly, yet fashionable at the same time! My red bag is from Tobi, socks from Dimepiece, and my boots are Tory Burch.
Fun fact: This picture was taken in the bathroom in the food court lol.
It’s hard to pick a favorite boba spot nowadays so I like to categorize them by location. So I dub Tea Villa the best boba I ever had in East San Jose! I got the Oreo Creme Brulee, which was surprisingly not too sweet. Grab this before heading to Angkorian Grill!
Definitely had a fun time at Eastridge Center over the holidays! I’m already planning for my next trip down there! Still gotta check out Round 1 Barcade, Forever 21 Red, and try the rest of those drinks at Teavilla!
