Alberto’s

Alberto’s is a small chain of Mexican fast food.  Before they opened in Orange County we used to drive all the way to Oceanside to eat there.  Now there’s a few in Orange County.  Something strange happened because many of the Alberto’s have changed their names to things like Alberta’s and Albertaco’s but they seem …

Houstons

See (O.C. Dining)

The LA Houstons is at the Century City Shopping Center.…

Prehistoric Pets

This is a really cool pet store that’s near Ebisu Ramen and Genghis Kahn Mongolian BBQ.   They specialize in reptiles but my favorite thing there is to feed the "Man Eating Catfish."  At least that’s what I like to call them.  Near the entrance to the store they have a small indoor pond with …

Dragon Phoenix Palace Chinese Seafood Restaurant

This place is in the center of Little Saigon even though it’s a Chinese restaurant.   The Dim Sum is pretty good there.  It’s served from I think 11am to 2pm.  You’ll feel like you’re in another country.  It’s best to get Dim Sum on the weekend as there is more variety but it will …

King’s Road Cafe

I don’t really know what to recommend here.  It’s not bad, it’s not great, it’s just a place we used to go because generally there wasn’t a long wait and it was convenient.  It’s on Beverly just east of La Cienega at the corner of Beverly and King’s Road. Hence the name ;-)

Doria’s Haus of Pizza

This is a great place for cheap Italian food.  I’ve never had pizza there.  I usually have Lasagna or Cannelloni or Manicotti.  It’s all good and pretty cheap.   This is really a local type of place and there is often a wait to get in.

Directions: Take the 405 south to Adams.  Turn right …

BCD Tofu House: The 24 hour Korean Tofu Soup place

This is not the first place I’ve had "jige" (jee gay) said very quickly.  I don’t know really how to pronounce the food I ate.  I think "jige" just means soup.…

Kanpai

This is also a good place for sushi though not as good as Sushi Wave.  It’s great for lunch though as they have some pretty good lunch specials including gyoza and chicken and beef teriyaki for those non-sushi eaters.

Directions: Take Bristol south from the 405 to Baker.  Turn left.  Kanpai is on the left …

Tapioca Express

This is my favorite Bo Ba place.  They have just the right amount of tea to milk to sugar ratio and I like the favor of their tea.  The one I usually go to is on Valley Blvd west of Garfield on the south side of the street in a strip mall.  There are at …
