HELP!! huntington beach area recs any ethnic <30 per
How about S Vietnamese Cuisine right outside the Westminster Mall? It's surprisingly tasty and definitely is classier than your usual Westminster joint.
There's also Shinsengumi Robatayaki on Brookhurst and Ellis in Fountain Valley, for all your grilled chicken part and sake needs... very, very tasty.
I second the rec for Mangia...Mangia. Great family-run, neighborhood joint (they're from Sicily), homey, cozy Italian food. Also excellent is Walt's Wharf in Seal Beach (very short drive from HB) for terrific fresh fish, simply prepared. I also like Enrique's Mexican Restaurant in Long Beach. I no longer live in the OC, but I always beg my parents to take me to these three restaurants when I come home for a visit.
Bukhara, for Indian, on Edinger, between Gothard & Beach (across from Bella Terra). Excellent food, and warm, efficient service.
Rombi's for Italian, on Warner & Gothard, in a strip mall on the NE corner.
There's another relatively new Italian place, the name of which escapes me, in the shopping center behind Bukhara. It's a door or two from the Weight Watcher's office (side of guilt with your pasta, anyone?). Also very good.

For Italian Mangia Mangia off Warner is good if you are staying in HB...but if you are open to Sunset Beach, just head up PCH to Roman Cucina and order the sausage mozzerella pasta with penne. Yum! Prices are very good, nice ambience, beautiful patio, and Monday is Martini night - special prices on all martinis, woohoo!
Mario's at Beach and Main is good for sit down Mexican.
Duke's on the pier has a great view and pretty tasty fish tacos. Drinks can get a little expensive.
For casual, tasty food I like HB Beer Company upstairs on Main St - pizza's, burger's etc, I looove their tuna chop salad with spicy rice vinaigrette.
Good luck and enjoy!
