No.Cal first timer: looking for recs in Orange County and surroundings

John J. | Mar 8, 2005 10:55 PM


i will be visiting from SF and will be staying in Costa Mesa

could someone please help with the following?

a good place for lunch along the way from John Wayne to Downey

a good place for dinner (i'm willing to drive) as i'll be in the downey area

a good place for dinner close to John Wayne airport

ideally, i would like to eat authentic ethnic cuisines that Southern California does better than Northern California, or stuff that I can't get in San Francisco

i'll be dining solo so nothing too fancy and too expensive
