Location Description:

Dos Chinos is a cuisine of OC love, like what happens when Vietnamese and Mexican teens combine the leftovers after their high school's International Day. Dos Chinos uses the humble tortilla to riff brilliantly on Asian traditions within the friendly confines of a taco or burrito: unctuous pork belly cut with a sharp green salsa; carne asada as beautifully burnt as anything off Bristol, enlivened with sweet-and-sour guacamole; curry chicken brightened by tamarind-spiked sour cream.
