Orly Taitz was the subject of a Weekly cover story in June 2009.
"Forking Around With . . ." is our occasional feature meant to spotlight the food likes and dislikes of people of prominence in Orange County.

Dr. Orly Taitz, the Rancho Santa Margarita attorney and dentist who is best known for her challenges of Barack Obama's eligibility for the presidency, is certainly prominent here in our red county.

She graciously took time from her busy caseload to share her thoughts on OC's food scene.

Orly Taitz: We love the ocean, and we go for walks by the ocean on the weekends and visit a few restaurants in Laguna Beach and Dana Point. Probably my favorite is C'est La Vie (373 S. Coast Hwy., Laguna Beach, 949-497-5100; cestlavierestaurant.com). This restaurant has great food, excellent service, friendly waiters and waitresses, and incredible ocean views. RJ's Cafe in Dana Point Harbor (25001 Dana Point Harbor Dr., Ste. 120, Dana Point, 949-218-5757; rjscafe.com) has piano entertainment from time to time, great fish dishes and beautiful views of the Harbor. Ichibiri (16 Monarch Bay Plaza, Dana Point, 949-661-1544) in Dana Point offers Japanese food, which is cooked in front of your eyes, in a very fresh and friendly atmosphere. China Moon in Laguna Niguel (30001 Town Center Dr., Laguna Niguel, 949-249-6868; chinamoonrestaurant.com) and Peking Dragon in Dana Point (34171 Pacific Coast Hwy., Dana Point, 949-493-9499; pekingdragonrestaurant.com) are our favorite Chinese restaurants.

OCW: If you could snap your fingers and instantly have any dish delivered to you, what would it be?

OT: If I could snap my fingers and order something, it would be tart frozen yogurt with chocolate morsels.

OCW: Do you drink alcohol? If so, what's your favorite? If not, what do you drink with dinner?

OT: I rarely drink wine, as I work long hours and prefer to stay alert. Maybe once a week, I would order a glass of white Zinfandel with dinner.

OCW: If you could import any restaurant from anywhere else in the world to Orange County, what would it be? Why?

I think fluff pieces that attempt to humanize raving, ego-maniacal lunatics are kind of neat! Tell us more about your gustatory tastes Orly haha *pulls up chair and listens attentively*

Donald Trump and Genghis Khan next please

One of the screwball characters in OC, and all you card-carrying country-club members can do is nod knowingly to each other, comb your hair (thank God for mirrors!), and loudly miss any opportunity for humor. Shoulda' listened to Charlie and come out here via Omaha.

Still laughing at Ichibiri- I can walk there from my house and wouldn't go back for free food- "cooked in front of your eyes", maybe she is afraid of that errant hair!

OCW is turning into the Register. Who cares what this old hag thinks? This is super boring.

Fact check much?? I want to hear more about RJ's " piano entertainment, great fish dishes and beautiful views of the Harbor. " Is it the canned tuna or frozen fish/chips that intrigues Orly? Perhaps the interviewer was simply startstruck by OC's celeb-birther.

Fortunately, her taste in food sucks.That means my chance of running into her is nil. This article was a joke, right? Or is OC Weekly going Enquirer?

OT: "I would not ban anything from the OC. The beauty of OC is in a blend of cultures and traditions...."

I wish I'd been the one asking Orly Taitz these questions. I would have asked her whether she extends that very American sounding view to Muslims in OC, and as a further supplementary question, about her repeated exhortaitions to her minions to spray pigs blood around the (so called) Ground Zero Mosque area, or to walk around there with pigs on leads.

Orly, you are a class act. Keep up the good work & thank you.

Another question you forgot to aks Dr. Orly is if she's develpoed a taste for crow yet.

Wow this article really surprised me coming from the OCW. What's next? An interview with Octomom about her favorite feminine hygiene products?

Funny, the OC Weekly has ceased reporting on Orly's continual epic courtroom failures, as well as other nasty and vindictive stuff she posts on her web site. And now this revolting interview about food? Who cares what Orly Taitz likes to eat? Did Yosi Taitz buy the OC Weekly or something?

This woman is OC's biggest embarrassment. To "feed" this attention whore is very un-appetizing.

Interesting comment about frogs legs. Looks like while Dr. Orly likes to use her faith as an excuse at times, she doesn't keep kosher (frogs are unclean).

And yes, you should have asked her for her favourite pancake places. I'm sure she has quite a bit to say about pancakes.

CityCountryMe

Yes, I'd also like to know about her favorite pancakes.

Dave, you didn't ask about her thoughts on circular breakfast foods served with concentrated tree sap and churned cow's cream? Does she not like breakfast, the most important meal of the day?

I'm actually surprised she would grant a food-related interview after all the flap about paintings

Sam: I once interviewed Jim Gilchrist of the Minuteman Project about his favorite Mexican food; he replied it was the taquitos at El Torito. Sometimes, its fun to give people a rope and let them tie the noose themselves...

I here that Orly likes the pancakes at a coffee shop in Columbus, GA. The rumor is they are so good that AG Holder frequently flies across country to eat there.

And is her favorite pancake place as Dan Lacey depicted it?

OH I would just love that!!! But I bet she buys the stuff that isn't a box. Plus, I have not been to California for a long time. I just love seeing Dr. Taitz do stuff besides just QUESTIONER (Birther) stuff, because after a while some people just forget we are all real human beings too with other stuff in our life!!!
