T.C.B.Y (The Country’s Best Yogurt)

T.C.B.Y. is a national chain of frozen yogurt / ice cream shops.  It’s nothing special, at least for me, but you’ve got to see this.  They have something they call "Rainbow Cream".  It’s vanilla ice cream with a TON OF FOOD COLORING!!!!   Of course kids love it.  I tried it and it was fine BUT, […]

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 thing.

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. Directions: Simplest Directions. Take […]

Sam Woo in Irvine

Shoreline Cafe

They are also open 24 hours.  At least the one in Belmont Shores is.  Their food isn’t as good as Harbor house but it’s usually not bad and Belmont Shores is far more interesting than the Harbor House locations. Directions: Take the 405 north to the 7th Street exit.  On the 7th street exit there […]

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 […]

Relaxtation

Relaxtation is where I was first introduced to Black Pearl Milk Tea or Bo Ba Nai Cha (Bo Ba for short).  Bo Ba I believe is pretty much any drink that you put large tapioca balls in the most common being Black Tea and Milk.  Once you try this I think you’ll be addicted.  Each […]
