The Best OC Food Places

    If you’re an extreme foodie like me, then look no further! This post will contain some of the best places places to spend your lunch or dinner. I’ve chosen places that are all different: from hot pot to macaron ice cream sandwiches!


1) Coffee Code {7855 La Palma Ave, Buena Park, CA 90620}

    Many of us start our day with a cup of coffee and waffles, but you’ve never seen anything this yummy or delicious! Coffee Code is known for their desserts: Coffee & Waffles. They have plenty of different waffles such as: chocolate chip waffle, fruit waffle, mochi waffle, and different flavored brick toasts. I would recommend the chocolate chip waffle.


2)Quan Hy {9727 Bolsa Ave, Westminster, CA 92683}

    One of my favorite restaurants in OC. I love the environment and it’s perfect for a date night or even business meetings since the restaurant is beautiful and spacious. There’s even a mini waterfall at the entrance. I recommend: Banh Beo ( rice flour dishes with fresh shrimp and onions) and their Bun Bo Hue (vietnamese spicy beef noodle soup). Their bowl of Bun Bo Hue will cost you about 8 dollars, overall it is very inexpensive for such a fancy looking restaurant.


3) Boiling Point(14140 Culver Dr, Irvine, CA 92606}

    I’m not much of a hot pot fan but Boiling point is the exception.  Be warned, this place is very popular and the wait on a weekend will run about 40 minutes to an hour. For first timers, I recommend the beef hot pot since it’s the most popular one - don’t forget to get their milk teas also. They are having a summer special!



4) Sake 2 Me (13951 Carroll Way,Tustin, CA 92780).

My favorite place to get sushi! I prefer it over Asahi also. Lunch prices are: $20 and $24 for dinner. You can order anything you’d like off the menu (ALL YOU CAN EAT/ BUFFET) and you have three rounds. You have to finish everything on the table before you can order a second round (because they don’t want to waste food); if you want to bring food home then you have to pay extra. My favorites: I love the green mussel, and the lobster roll.


5) Snow Monster (9600 Bolsa Ave, Westminster, CA 92683 / 17406 Beach Blvd

Huntington Beach, CA 92647)

    Yay! They finally opened up a second location. Snow Monster is very popular, it’s not hard to tell why. They are famous for their huge macaron ice cream sandwiches. I love their Thai Tea also, it’s huge. A word of advice: Drink the Thai Tea there and get the rest in a to-go cup (you’ll get more Thai Tea for your money that way). They alternate ice cream flavors and macaron flavors so you always have something new to try!
