    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

    The Gentrifying Gourmet - Learning to like Ambrosia

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

    I've developed a few simple rules over the years for gauging the desirability of a sushi place. The main one, with apologies to the late Johnnie Cochran, is: "If the ginger's dyed pink, the sushi might stink." It's not an absolute, but the classier ...
