Celebrated our son's birthday with family and Roy's menu, as always, never disappoints. The chocolate souffle is deliciously smooth and rich with deep chocolate flavor. Our favorite main entree is the misoyaki fish but everyone's entree choices were yummy and satisfying. It was a fun night together and we will definitely be back soon. More

Discover Orange County

Located in the sunny state of California, Orange County is known for its many tourist attractions. Considering that Orange County consists of 34 cities and is more populous than 21 U.S. states, you can bet the attractions include not only the best surfing beaches, the Balboa ferry, and sites like Knott’s Berry Farm and Disneyland but also a huge selection of restaurants. The warm climate enhances the growth of fresh, organic vegetables and fruits, which can be found in many restaurants. Although iconic California foods like Rocky Road ice cream and sourdough bread may have originated in other CA cities, they’re also popular in Orange County. Fast food places, drive-ins, and Korean barbecues are popular in this area, too. Smoothies in the summer, however, take the cake.
