I have lived in OC (Irvine) for about 5 years now and always thought that casual dining in OC is not that great. Maybe that is due to the fact that I never really looked hard except for looking things up in the Zagat once in a while or the fact that I look forward to dining in LA on the weekends. Anyways, I read about this forum in an article and was hoping that the good people that post here can give me suggestions for places to dine in OC, particularly in Irvine, Tustin, Costa Mesa area. Looking for places for weekday dining and average price. I love to eat and will eat any type of cusine. Thank you.
