First to Review

I'd been running around Orange County completing various errands when my tummy suddenly made it very clear to me that it was lunch time. Naturally, I had to surrender and identify a spot to find some grub, though I still had a laundry list of tasks that needed tending too. One item on my agenda included spending time with grandma in a nearby rehabilitation center so a to-go option seemed the most appropriate.

As I browsed through my phone I noticed this little restaurant with rave reviews. The hours were limited to the morning and mid-afternoon so I figured it was a local favorite. My instincts were right on target. I was surprised to see a line out the door! It was Tuesday for crying out loud! Good lord! Luckily, the line moved quickly.

Everything sounded amazing, so I decided to order a half sandwich (California Baja) and salad (Crunchy Hong Kong Chicken Salad) combo for $8.50. It also included one side and after seeing so many positive comments about the zucchini bread I knew that this combo would be the best way to sample their signature items.

When my number was called I couldn't help myself, I had to sample the goodies before departing. Mmm... the salad was very refreshing and I especially loved their sesame dressing with the cashew nuts. The sandwich was also tasty with the creamy avocado and moist chicken. The zucchini bread was good, but not as mind-blowing as I hoped. I somewhat regretted not dining-in as the out-door patio had a nice view, but I guess that just means I'll have to come back! and I most certainly will!
