I'm a NY hound (former LA hound) coming to spend four days in Anaheim for a conference. I'm really looking forward to checking out the Orange County vietnamese and thai spots. It sounds like I should definitely visit Thai Nakorn. I seem to recall another Issan restaurant in Norwalk that used to be excellent a couple of years ago ... is it still there/still worth going to? If so, what is the name? Any other don't miss suggestions for the area? Suggestions for chow-worthy lunch options within a reasonable driving distance of the Anaheim Marriott are especially welcome.
(Of course I will also be hitting up my LA faves, Zankou, the Hollywood farmer's market, Beverly Soon Tofu, maybe Phillipe's, maybe some carnitas tacos, a burger etc. And I expect to hit some off-the-radar vietnamese spots with friends -- will definitely post the results.)
