    Fountain Valley Flash - Despite a few tacky sins, Aysya proves great

    Okay, let's start with some constructive criticism: Aysya in Fountain Valley needs to fix a couple of things, and fast. First, the name: It elicits nothing but rolled eyes and derisive sneers when I mention it to friends. Someone needs to explain ...

    This Hole-in-the-Wall Life - Food Court Peruvian: LIMA CITY

    Food courts are refuges for the desperate, thepeople who work blocks away from edible lunch options and don't care about bland grub as long as it's E. coli-free. That bland reliability seems to be in store for the Irvine workers who patronize the Pl...

    Fishing for Quality - Skip the rolls at Takaraya and go straight for the good stuff
