Just moved to Costa Mesa near the Fair...

so I need food recomendations in Costa Mesa or the surrounding areas. I used to live in Mission Viejo and would hate how there wasnt anything really good to eat since it is more of a Suburan paradise (chain restaurant hell). I picked Costa Mesa as the next place to live because it was close to the beach and more of a cosmopolitan city. I would be happy with recommendations ranging from inexpensive to expensive. I don't care, I want them all as long as they rock. Ive already been to Habana, Shibucho, Santouka, TK Burgers, Hashigo Korean Kitchen, and Orchid Restaurant. I think the Golden Truffle is next on my list to go to, but please hit me with all kinds of recommendations. Im open to everything...
