    This Hole-in-the-Wall Life - Pirated Pollo

    Finally, a Salvadoran restaurant where pupusas aren't the focus: UN RINCN CENTROAMERICANO, a diner-cum-record store-cum-grocery in Garden Grove, just off the 22. Don't get me wrong: Un Rincn Centroamericano (A Central American Corner) does prepare...

    Sashimi Surrender - Let Ikko Kobayashi have his way with you

    Ikko Kobayashi has been called a sushi magician, but I regard the man as a mad scientist, grafting disparate ingredients into creations that come alive in your mouth. Whatever you do, do not ask for soy sauce or wasabi--his experiments are already c...

    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...

    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...

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

    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 ...

    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...

    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...
