Quick bite between Irvine/San Juan Cap (Coach House)

I apologize for how last minute this is. No time to plan ahead. We are attending a concert at Coach House tonight, and don't normally venture this far South.

The prereqs:

Her feedback -
My friend does not want super healthy or organic (like Veggie Grill)
She also does not like sushi.

My feedback-
I am not eating meat today. Ideally, I'm going to stick by that.
I do not feel like having Mexican. Had it yesterday.
I am TERRIBLE with spicy food.
Don't want to pay over $20/person.
We are very much open to hole-in-the-walls.

Any feedback is very much appreciated.

  1. Kings Fish House right off of the 5 at El Toro adjacent to the Laguna Hills Mall.

    1. There's Fukada in Irvine off of Irvine Center Dr. Known mostly for their soba noodles and other izakaya type plates. It's not a sushi place, so your friend shouldn't be scared off by its presence on the menu. But it might be considered "super healthy".

      1. JAB: Now if only I had my gift certs for that place with me...I would be so there. Wish I thought of it sooner. Maybe we'll go anyway?

        I got nothin: I've been meaning to go to Fukada for WEEKS. It's also not busy for dinner (as opposed to crazy lunch). Thanks. I will share the to-go menu I have in my "lunch file".
