Ajisen Ramen – Irvine – (949) 833-3288, 2700 Alton Parkway, Suite 145

This is one of many restaurants in a huge Japanese/Korean complex. The ramen soup was good although a little pricey.

Hokkaido Buffet – (949) 851-5888

Hokkaido Buffet – (949) 851-5888 – 4200 Scott Drive, Newport Beach, 92660

This is a seafood buffet that has an unlimited sushi bar and crab/shrimp/n’ various sea creatures that seafood lovers love. There’s also the typical Chinese non-seafood stuff like fried rice, orange chicken, miso soup for land animal eaters only like myself. It’s comparable to Todai or Sumo – quasi-Japanese/Chinese buffets. There will be something for everyone but the biggest enjoyment will be for seafood/sushi lovers.

Thanh Restaurant – Irvine – 949-559-7788

Thanh Restaurant – Irvine – 949-559-7788 –  15315 Culver Drive #140, 92604

Very clean and nicely decorated upscale restaurant befitting of it’s Irvine location.

Com Tam (Gum Tum) – translates to broken rice. A filling meal of rice with delicious grilled meat or seafood, served with pickled vegetables, sometimes with egg-foo-young patty or a fried egg. Drizzle the fish sauce all over and you’ve got a pretty tasty rice dish.

I like the Com Ga (Gum Gaah) – Chicken Rice from the Thanh (Ton)  restaurant in Irvine. They put these tasty thin onion ring-like strips over a generous portion of the salad.
