Thai or Chines in Costa Mesa, Nwpt Bch area
My favorite Chinese restaurant in Costa Mesa is near Harbor and 19th street, just up from Triangle Square. It's a fun little place, and we've been going here for over 25 years! It's called Golden Dragon.
The chinese food is definitely americanized, but it's run by a sweet old woman (we call her "mama" she's the owner/founder) and her son. Great lunch specials for about $6 and other great dishes for dinner. We like both the hot and sour as well as the sizzling rice soups. Sweet and sour shrimp are excellent, as are the bbq ribs appetizer. They also do great mixed drinks (mai tais, etc). If you're hankering for that old fashioned american-chinese food, this is the place to go.
