    Sucking in the '70s - The grub at Wong's is sublime, if you don't mind dangly tassels

    Quentin Tarantino, take note. The setting for your next '70s chop-socky kung-fu film homage isn't in the Valley or a studio back lot. It's in Garden Grove, at a place called Wong's. Although they started cooking back in 1952 in LA, Wong's has been...

    Finger Food - Dining at Tana will make your dry cleaner happy

    Admitting your ignorance of Ethiopian cuisine at Tana only makes its smiling proprietress even more enthusiastic. And that's just what we did when we wandered into her six-month-old eatery, located deep in a part of Anaheim where tourists fear to tr...

    Sashimi Surrender - Let Ikko Kobayashi have his way with you

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

    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...

    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...
