      Din Ho for Chinese on Lake Forest & Trabuco. Also Black Forest Bakery in that same plaza is very good.

          I second the Fukada rec. You get a large amount of good quality food for their lunch deal.

            I third Fukada. One of my favorite lunch spots. Closed on Mondays -- I learned the hard way.
