Contemporary American | Huntington Beach / Seal Beach / Fountain Valley, North Orange County

Yummy food. Absolutely delicious. Great service. Sat by fireplace and it was great for me but any non Floridian who doesn’t like it to be 78 might get hot sitting there, so unless you really like it hot maybe avoid the table. It’s really cozy and romantic though if you can handle the heat. More

Vegan | Newport Beach, South Orange County

I absolutely love the place. I’d recommend the yam dish and the flat bread pizza. They are delicious and I had to order a second dish of the yams because the tahini sauce is from another world. It is one of my favorite plates. Let’s talk about drinks. They have a variety of different options but the matcha latte is very well prepared. Must try location. More

Discover Orange County

Located in the sunny state of California, Orange County is known for its many tourist attractions. Considering that Orange County consists of 34 cities and is more populous than 21 U.S. states, you can bet the attractions include not only the best surfing beaches, the Balboa ferry, and sites like Knott’s Berry Farm and Disneyland but also a huge selection of restaurants. The warm climate enhances the growth of fresh, organic vegetables and fruits, which can be found in many restaurants. Although iconic California foods like Rocky Road ice cream and sourdough bread may have originated in other CA cities, they’re also popular in Orange County. Fast food places, drive-ins, and Korean barbecues are popular in this area, too. Smoothies in the summer, however, take the cake.
