Creations Pizzeria in Tustin

There was a time I could enjoy mass-produced pizzas with the best of them, but I suppose my tastes have matured. I think the end came when we went to a friend’s pizza party, where everyone made their own thin crust pizzas from fresh ingredients and really good sauce. That was when I discovered what […]

Taqueria Los Grandes

It’s a bit of a drive, but we discovered a little hole in the wall place deep inside Santa Ana, at 1736 W. Fifth Street.  Taqueria Los Grandes is not much bigger than a Taco Bell, and like a Taco Bell you order the food at the counter and pick it up when called.  In […]

El Pollo Norteno and GrubHub.com

Two reviews for the price of one, because I found a great restaurant through a great delivery service. I’ve seen a number of food delivery services come and go, so I almost hate to write about GrubHub.com, given the likelihood of its demise. But for what it’s worth, at least for the time being GrubHub.com […]

Full Moon Sushi

We are always open to a new sushi restaurant, and once we saw the sign go up on Full Moon Sushi on First Street, we were anxious for the debut, and showed up to give it a try the first week it was open. Good fresh sushi is all fine and good, but that provides […]
