This Week in a View With Your Food


Named after a Michoacán rancho that has sent thousands of its residents to Orange County, the colorful restaurant makes the best tacos in the county. They deviate from taco protocol by using full-sized corn tortillas and pile on chunks of your choice of grilled meat. The salsa is extraordinary, a dark-red lava extract whose burn factor is unknown outside Paricutín. The television here is on top of a garbage can. 899 W. 19th St., Costa Mesa, (949) 645-4964. $

The brainchild of Gregg Diganci of Rueben's and Charley Brown's steakhouse fame, Wingnuts is the first West Coast restaurant to specialize in chicken wings. With the sampler, one gets five wings each in five different flavors: teriyaki, original Buffalo style, honey mustard, kung pao, and sweet and sour barbecue. But you can pick and choose from more than 30 varieties—and there are almost as many televisions. 3030 Harbor Blvd., Ste. H-3, Costa Mesa, (714) 434-7700. $$
