When someone tells you about a restaurant, what's the first thing you ask? Probably, "Really? What's good there?" Oh, sure, maybe you add, "I am the lord of the underworld," but that's the prescription medicine talking. When it comes down to it, restaurants would be nothing without food (and neither would supermarkets). So here, now, is a list of 100 great dishes in Orange County and a few in Long Beach. Main dishes, side dishes, desserts, condiments, cocktails, vegetarian nachos and cuisine à la Au Lac. It's all good . . . so eat it!
