Pho Mai Nguyen (the Catfish Place)

I’ve not been to many Vietnamese places but the catfish here is the best I’ve had.   It’s great.  In fact it’s so good I could each just that as my only dish plus some rice.  My friend Neil introduced me to this place. Vietnamese style eggrolls are also very good.  You roll them in

Luna Cafe

What are the two best things about this place?  (1) It’s open till 3 or 4 am.  (2) you get crayons to draw on your paper table cover with.

The food’s just okay. Nothing to really special but it’s alot more interesting than Denny’s for that late night

Sagami

Harbor House

Harbor House is also open 24 hours.  There is one in Dana Point and one in Huntington Harbor both on PCH (Pacific Coast Highway).  They specialize in omelets which are actually not bad.  They have a wide range of other foods too.  They’re pretty good especially for a 24 hour place.

Zen Grill

If you want a idea how small and crowed most restaurants in Japan are try this place.  Note: it is not Japanese food.  It’s basically a mix.  A few Chinese dishes, a few Vietnamese dishes, etc.  It’s pretty good but it’s always crowded.  Expect a wait.

It’s on 3rd just east of La Cienega across
