Chinese Restaurant Recommendation in Orange County

b

I currently live in NYC/Tri-State area and will be vacationing in Orange County (Costa Mesa / Irvine) in a few weeks. I am interested in knowing which Chinese restaurants are good locally. If you have any good suggestions, please let me know.

Thanks!

    Weekend dim sum is quite good at Ten Ten in Anaheim, but if you want the best Chinese food, skip OC in favour of a 45-minute drive to the San Gabriel Valley. It's like taking the 7 train to Queens, but (if I dare say so) better.

    In OC you should check out the Viet food scene, there's arguably no better place on the continent for it.

      Thanks! I will check it out. Last few times I was in OC I did drive up to Rowland Hts area as well as Monterey Park / Temple City... it was great.. I should do a little more research on places up there.

      Nothing in Costa Mesa but there's quite a few choices in Irvine, particularly in two shopping centers straddling Walnut by Jeffrey Rd. (near I-5). See thread below for last week's Irvine discussion.

        Thanks! I will take a look. Irvine isn't far at all, I will give it a try.
