    This Hole-in-the-Wall Life - Comfort Curry

    Apologies for the recent spate of Japanese restaurant reviews in the Weekly, but those goldfish farmers do know how to make great grub. They can also down-home it with the best of them, despite the cuisine's sophisticated reputation. Each nationalit...

    Pork Belly Decadence - It's a do-it-yourself world at Manpuku

    Some restaurants just aren't very good ideas during the hot summer months. Korean soft tofu joints, with their boiling iron cauldrons of soup. Fondue restaurants. Teppanyakis--really, anything that involves scalding-hot broth, open flames or live co...

    This Hole-in-the-Wall Life - The Finest Taco Truck in America

    "Is it worth the $2?" I asked my friend, worried that he felt ripped off at TACOS Y MULITAS RUBEN, a SanTana taco truck that's more restaurant than roach coach. "Mmph, mmph mmph. Mmph mmph!" he grunted emphatically, four-day mustache smeared with a ...

    Wine & Ice Cream Tasting

    When I first heard about the unusual pairing of wine and ice cream, honestly it sounded like a stomach ache waiting to happen. Then again, I'm one of those people who likes to try weird and possibly gross food, so I decided to check it out. The fo...

    Of Mice and Mousse - K'Ya is a slice of elegance amid Disneyland's tourist hell

    The Hotel Mnage isn't your typical hotel. It's a boutique hotel, so stylish it oozes Las Vegas and South Beach. Funny, then, that it's in Anaheim, a city dominated by corporate chains, cheap motels and, of course, Disney. But that's exactly the dra...

    Golden Arches - Sauces made of velvet and class in Newport Beach

    This Hole-in-the-Wall Life - Buddhist Bounty

    Lunch at a Snail's Pace

    Americans can be real weenies when it comes to food. We like our meat, but can't stand it to look like an actual dead animal, and have to mince it into patties, or cut it into squares for breading and deep-frying. We'll only eat squid if you don't ca...

    Don't go to the new Whole Foods in Tustin on an empty stomach. Trust me on this. On my first foray, my hungry eyes got the best of me. After a half-hour in the store, my hand basket grew so heavy that I traded it for a cart. An hour later, I was i...

    My Hero, Zero - Takashi Abe's new izakaya does Japanese pub fare right

    No place else is as quintessentially OC as Huntington Beach. And no nightlife is quite like the kind going down on Main Street. Along the beer-soaked drag, Friday-night revelers, full of alcohol, merriment and greasy food, spill out from the bars. M...
