Yakitori and Mezza in Orange County
I'm not sure if anyone has replied to you yet. Honda-ya is a phenomenal yakitori bar/pub in Tustin. 556 El Camino Real, Tustin, 714-832-0081. The food, atmosphere there are so authentic, that you feel disoriented when you come out of the restaurant. I live in LA now, and we really miss the place. Also try the ramen, which is a "secret menu" item. If you like Japanese pubs of any kind, also recommend Kappo-sui 20070 Santa Ana Ave. 714-429-0141. Honda-ya is my fave though.
