OC Restaurant Week at AnQi Bistro

I finally made it over to AnQi, the new gourmet Vietnamese-fusion bistro at South Coast Plaza that is a sister of the celebrity-patronized Crustacean restaurant in Beverly Hills.

Boudin Bakery – A Whif of Heaven

Posted on February 16, 2010 | Food

Just walking by Boudin Bakery is like a whif of heaven. You can smell the  sourdough bread baking in the South Coast Plaza corridors.

Boudin is a nice place to stop for a nice quick lunch. They serve sandwiches, soup, salad, and pastries and are known for their sourdough bread and clam chowder. I can easily eat here twice a week because of the convenience of being so close to the parking lot and the low prices of the food. Read More
