      yeah, i always saw the sign off the 5 fwy heralding FUNNEL CAKE in simple lettering right under the Starbuck's logo.

    2. I have. It's funnel cake, just like at the county fair, minus the overpricing.

        Nobody in their right mind would go here instead of taking the extra 3 block drive down to Cream Pan. I've thought about it every time I make the left turn onto El Camino but then I regain consciousness. I realize they are totally different products but there is a method to the madness.

          I have a serious question. Are they at all affiliated with the smoke shop in that same building?

          1. There is a nice post with a photo of the FC on Elmomonster's "Monster Munching" OC centered food blog about Habibi's here http://elmomonster.blogspot.com/2010/... (and it doesn't sound like you would be missing much if you skip this place, kevin - unless you have a powerful funnel cake itch that demands scratching NOW!).

              Yeah, I'm not going to drive out there just for it,

              but that sign kept beckoning on my visits to OC off the 56 fwy.

              btw, now i gotta hit up o' groats too.
