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

brekkie_fan Apr 3, 2009 10:20 AM

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.

      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".

      Fukada Restaurant
      8683 Irvine Center Dr, Irvine, CA 92618

        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".
