While we're at it- can anyone recommend HEALTHY eats in O.C? Vegetarian and (gasp!) Gluten Free fine diner, having a seriously hard time finding anything outside of a grocery store salad bar out there. Is there a single veggie burger at the beach to be found anywhere?!
Fagers on 60th has a few vegetarian choices, and I think a veggie burger. Mad Hatters next to K-coast surf shop also has veggie burgers & other vegetarian sandwiches. Tequilas has a great spinach-mushroom enchalada dinner that I LOVE!
as for gluten free, not sure. the globe in berlin also has great vegetarian dishes.
For Crabs - Try the Crab Bag on 130th street or Crab Alley on Golf Course Rd in West OC.
For Italian - you have to try Faustos Antipasti on 31st street. Try the Timballo, you won't be disapointed!
Fo an added bonus, if you are in the mood for a Margarita, hit up Tequila Mockingbird in the Montego Bay Shopping Center (129th st). Best Margaritas and fresh salsa around!!!
