Passion Berry – Westminster – (714) 775-5300

Passion Berry – Westminster – (714) 775-5300, 9550 Bolsa Ave #115C, 92683

One of the many Yogurt/dessert shops popping up like crazy. It reminds me of the Boba drink fad several years ago (early-mid 2000s). They are very similar to the Korean owned Pinkberry chain but the difference is it’s all self-serve and you get charged by the weight. You can pick from many flavors of frozen yoghurt and select your own fruit or candy toppings.

Hoang Yen – Westminster – 714-531-8833, 9600 Bolsa Ave Ste N, 92683
Small, new restaurant located next to Luc Dinh Ky II. They serve a number of vietnamese dishes, but the Chao Ca is good here. Chao Ca (CHOW KA) is a rice congee soup with fish Ca, or chicken Ga (Gaahh) that is normally served when one is sick like the American Chicken Noodle Soup, it is a comfort food that is good for those who have problems chewing.
The Bun Vit Sao Mang (Boon Veet Sow Mung) is good here too. That’s rice noodle soup with Duck and Bamboo Shoots.

Kobe Sushi – Fountain Valley – 714-968-9938

Posted by k on April 12, 2009

Kobe Sushi – Fountain Valley – 714-968-9938, 10585 Slater Ave Unit 8A & B. Low cost sushi joint where they have a 50% off sushi deal from 5pm-7pm Mon-Thurs. Run by Vietnamese owners so may not be 100% authentic Japanese. I stopped going here because the wait service was slow and they screwed up my order one too many times. However if you want cheap sushi, this may be the place for you.
