    This Hole-in-the-Wall Life - The Beauty of Boerewors at the African Hut

    Lost in the midst of Orange County's Mexican, Vietnamese, Arab, Persian and Samoan hordes are our "white" immigrants--the Irish of Seal Beach, Anaheim's Romanians and Germans, and the South Africans of South County. The Springbok Club of Southern Ca...

    Claes Is Class - Great view, service, food, cocktailsand a stiff bill to match

    The uninitiated will be forgiven for assuming Claes is the Nordic word for class after entering this swank joint encased in the "world famous" Hotel Laguna lurking over Main Beach. The host wears a freshly pressed suit, the mood is upper crusty rese...

    This Hole-in-the-Wall Life - Melts in Your Mouth and in Your Hand: Heaven on Spoon

    I've seen some bad restaurant locations over the years--behind decrepit hotels, in the middle of gang-infested neighborhoods, relegated to the stock room of a Guatemalan grocer--but Heaven on Spoon is one of the worst yet. It's in Santa Ana's Mainpl...

    This Hole-in-the-Wall Life - Edible Pillows at Rivera Mexican Food

    Tweaking Tried-and-True - Craig Rouse continues his winning streak with SevenS Steakhouse and Grille

    If you've been to one steak house, you've been to them all. Massive cuts. Sides large enough to feed a high school band. A wall of wines. Darkly dressed wait staff. Low lighting. Jazz. And that's why steak houses are so damn successful. People love ...
