Fideo by Mick – Irvine, CA – Great Noodles with many flavors

Many of you have probably been to or have heard of Mick’s Karma Bar. It has been consistently rated as one of the top burgers in Orange County. Well Mick decided to open another restaurant called Fideo by Mick offering what…bowls of noodles. Burgers to noodles you ask, how does that translate. Well it translates into delicious ‘noodly’ ‘brothy’ goodness. Stop by and try the different options including Phuket Beef, Braised Pork Belly , Curried Chicken, Lamb Ragu and Salsa Verde (Pork). All noodles are specially made for his restaurant offering a thicker wider ramen noodle then you have probably experienced. I was skeptical but the noodles, broth and ingredients work. The broth is very favorable and the noodles are of high quality and go well with the fragrant ingredients. Also if you aren’t feeling noodles you can substitute rice as well.  They have some creative drinks that are amazing including a Strawberry Basil Lemonade and Passionfruit Mint Lemonade.  Make sure to stop by and don’t be surprised if Mick himself comes to your table to chat.   Love, Peace and Phuket Beef Grease!

Thuyen Vien – Anaheim, CA – Healthy Vegetarian Vietnamese Food that tastes delicious.

Thuyen Vien – Anaheim, CA – Healthy Vegetarian Vietnamese Food that tastes delicious.

Healthy Vegetarian food that tastes delicious? Isn’t that an oxymoron? Not when you go to Thuyen Vien. Now let’s face it, if it was up to me I would eat Sushi, Prime Rib and Carne Asada Fries everyday. But I can’t because I have a mortgage and bills to pay and I want to weigh under 300 pounds. So when I’m looking to eat a healthy meal that is reasonable on the pocket book I turn to places like Thuyen Vien. They offer delicious food at reasonable prices that are healthy alternatives instead of a burger and fries. The trick at Thueyn Vien is knowing what to order because they have a pretty extensive menu. I’ll tell you what to get and don’t bother with the other items. Their Thai Pumpkin Curry, Garlic Chicken and Bun Bo Hue Royal Noodle Soup are the business.  They will make you forget you are eating vegetarian food.  The Pho and Egg rolls are also decent as well.  Make sure to check them out as a staple to eat healthy throughout the week at a great price.  Love, Peace and Garlic Chicken grease!
