Fullerton: Noodle St

Located in a tiny, but very busy strip mall off State College and Chapman is this Chinese noodle place. It’s located in the building behind the Chipotle, which is across the street from the Mobil gas station / Pieology/ Whats up Men?  The place is still in the […]

Costa Mesa: Din Tai Fung 

Din Tai Fung is a world renown dumpling restaurant, given a Michelin star in 2010. Some people rave about it, and some people think it’s pretentious and overpriced.  I have tried 3 of their Southern California locations and have noticed that there is a slight difference between the […]

Buena Park: Yoshiharu Ramen

Yoshiharu Ramen is located in the still being developed mall called “The Source”, located off Beach Blvd. and Orangethorpe, right off the 91 freeway (going opposite direction of Knott’s Berry Farm).  There’s a parking structure off Beach, which can be tricky to find if you’re not looking for the […]

Fullerton: Teriyaki Express 

I was heading to The Bruery and wanted a bite to eat beforehand. I yelped and this place was located a few blocks from Dunn Way. Perfect!! Located off State College and Orangethorpe, with a Subway sandwich, a Tattoo place, and a cell phone repair company is this […]

Artesia: Bowls by 39 Degrees 

Poke places are popping up faster than Starbucks.  For a while, Karen and I were going to a poke place at least once a week.  We have been going to J-Fish in Tustin and came across this place, Bowls by 39 Degrees and stopped by on a Tuesday […]

Fountain Valley: Simply Home Café

My quest continues for the best Hainan chicken in LA and Orange County. So far, Savoy Kitchen in Alhambra is still the king of Hainan chicken, but who wants to drive to LA? Located off Brookhurst and Edinger, down the street from the heart of little Saigon is this […]

Anaheim: Chew Noodle Bar

Ramen? Pho? You can get both here. Chew Noodle Bar is located off Magnolia and Ball, in a strip mall with a Zumba studio. I’ve been eyeing this place since their soft opening back in February, and the one time I went, I found out they’re closed on Mondays. […]

Artesia: Saffron Spot

Living in Southern California, we are spoiled with the vast selection of places to eat.  Just 45-minutes ago, I was in San Juan Capistrano having authentic Tacos de Trompo street tacos at Taqueros, and now I am having Indian style ice cream at Saffron Spot, located in a […]

Orange: Yoshiharu Ramen 

My friends and I were at the Anaheim Ducks Face-off Fest and wanted something to eat after the event. It was starting to rain, so a bowl of ramen, or something soupy sounded good.  This place was about 2 miles from the Honda Center, and they were open […]

Santa Ana: Gu Ramen

Located on the corner of 3rd and Main, this tiny little ramen place can be hard to find. They took over the old Paninoteca Mangio spot, which was next door to the now closed Little Sparrow restaurant. Parking can be a challenge, but there’s street parking and a […]

Tustin: J Fish Premium Poke and Sushi

What? Another Poke place in Orange County? YES! But J Fish isn’t another cookie cutter, assembly line, build your own bowl kind of poke place. You actually order your food at the cashier, and they bring your creation to you. Finally, a poke place that waits on you. […]

Santa Ana: Wokano Asian Restaurant

Dangle a discount, and I’m there! For a limited time, Pokemon Go Level 10 or higher players get rewarded with a 15% discount at Wokano. That was a good enough incentive to get me inside the door, as I had no idea what a “Wokano” was. I conjured […]

Westminster: Com Gá Nam An

Com Gá Nam An is located in Westminster, in the corner of Brookhurst and Macfadden at a busy outside strip mall, behind a Chase bank.  They specialize in chicken, specifically poached chicken which is similar to Hainan style chicken.  They have their own Vietnamese style, served with the […]

Encino: Streets of India

A real neighborhood gem featuring Northern Indian cuisine, and also Nepalese and Tibetan cuisine. The place is on the corner of Ventura and Libbit, located inside a medical/ office building. Park in the structure behind the building, and cut through the medical building lobby. We came here on […]

Anaheim: Cross Roast Cantonese fusion

This is literally a hidden neighborhood gem located on the corner of Rowland and Magnolia. Drive too fast on Magnolia, and you can totally miss this black building that blends in with the street. It looked more like a vape or a bookstore, than a restaurant. When we walked […]
