Little Saigon

I’m not sure if this is true but I’ve been told the Little Saigon has the most Vietnamese people outside of Vietnam.  It’s a great place to visit.  Especially check it out on Tet day one of the major celebrations. Directions: A good place to start is the area near the Dragon Phoenix Palace Chinese […]

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 […]

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 […]

Sushi Wave

Sushi Wave has the best sushi I’ve had in O.C.  There is often a 20 minute wait.   It’s funny because the place is full of Americans instead of Japanese natives even though there are lots of Japanese natives in the area.  At least most of the employees are Japanese natives.  What makes it so […]

Zankou Chicken

This is a small chain and originally from LA.  There are about 7 of them so far.  They are Armenian and they make some super delicious chicken (and other stuff).  My favorite item there is the Chicken Shawarma (sp?).  If you’ve ever been to a Greek fast food place and seen the big cone of […]

Tommy Sushi

This place is interesting in part because it’s so hidden.  If somebody didn’t tell you it was there you’d probably think it was a closet.  The sushi’s not bad.   The dinner sets of Japanese food are large but not great.  I really like the Poki bowl which is kind of like eating a bowl […]

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 […]

Niki’s

Niki’s is Indian fast food.  I could probably eat there everyday.  I usually get the Chicken Tika (not hot) and I have them put the white sauce on my rice.  I have the spinach and the yogurt and if I’m really hungry I’ll order a samosa.  Note: The yogurt should be treated like a dip […]
