Shik Do Rak, Garden Grove, CA

    I’ve eaten at Shik Do Rak All You Can Eat Korean BBQ in Irvine before, and I didn’t remember it being anything special, despite of high praises from various sources. But it’s been awhile so I was hoping maybe they improved. Nope. I’m very disappointed at the fact that most of the meats …

Cafe Mixx, Garden Grove, CA

    After stuffing ourselves with grilled meats at Shik Do Rak and in need of desserts to cool off, we stumbled upon Cafe Mixx conveniently located across the street. Their quaint little upstairs spot makes it perfect for a quiet night for coffee, tea, desserts, and conversation. They have dessert and coffee combinations that …

Genki Restaurant and Bakery, Garden Grove, CA

    Genki Restaurant and Bakery is stuffed in a deserted shopping plaza where its neighboring stores and cafes have closed for good and been put up for lease. I’m surprised my friend even found this place. I think the only reason he comes here is for the dirt cheap food. And I must agree. …

Tous Les Jours, Garden Grove, CA

    Tous Les Jours (I don’t even want to pretend I know how to pronounce that) is surprisingly spacious for a bakery that sells only bread and cakes. And they don’t even have a large selection of bread or pastries like Paris Baguette or Porto’s Bakery. I wonder how they can afford rent selling …

Mon Ami Cafe, Garden Grove, CA

  My entire family came to Mon Ami for dinner after attending my cousin’s high school graduation. We pretty much tore up the restaurant by taking up the whole half of the place. Good times! Because there were so many people, we were able to try a bunch of different Vietnamese and Vietnamese/French fusion dishes. …

Brodard Chateau, Garden Grove, CA

    My parents love Vietnamese food, and as you know, there aren’t a lot of “fine dining” Vietnamese restaurants out there to go for a special occasion. Well, I suppose there’s S Vietnamese Fine Dining restaurant next to Westminster Mall. But the thing is, Vietnamese food is delicious yet simple; so to make it …

My Vi Mi Gia, Garden Grove, CA

    This was a funny day for my cousins and myself, trying to decide what to eat. I found a local noodle place called Mi La Cay and upon driving there we found out it practically vanished off the face of the earth. We were in the right plaza according to the GPS but …

7 Leaves Cafe, Garden Grove, CA

    I think I’ve found an alternative coffee choice to Starbucks and Coffee Bean. The quality of 7 Leaves coffee might even be better than those two combined for half the price! You can get good quality coffee and tea for less than $3 bucks! Apparently, 7 Leaves is known for Sea Cream Jasmine …
