Not quite as crazy as the dessert
Hello, dear readers, my I can't believe it's October already. Let's take a look at what happened this week in food.

Edwin had his mind blown, and not in the way you're thinking, at A&O Kitchen+Bar. He gave us the restaurant roll call for September and told us to try the meatballs from Pirozzi. He also told us about a new place opening called "Dude, Where's My Curry" to which I say hmm....hmmm.

Boled over

Yes. Yes. Yes.
Aw, the summer is coming to a close. Personally, I can't wait for some rain and cold weather food - of course, that'll never happen! Carry on as usual!

This week, Edwin visited Jinbei in Irvine and described it as the Japanese restaurant's Japanese restaurant. Sounds like we should definitely go. Then he named the fried chicken from Disneyland's Plaza Inn one of his favorite dishes along with the cookie monster ice cream from B. Candy.

Something fishy about this pho
Hi dudes, let's take a look at what happened this week in food...

Edwin tried Fountain Valley's Vegan Cuisine and slurped down some faux pho that might just fool you. Then he told us that Pieology is set to open at the Irvine Marketplace this Sunday and that they'll give away free pizza vouchers to the first 50 customers. Next, he announced the opening of OC's first dry pot restaurant and he previewed a dish at Clay Oven in Irvine that features the world's hottest chile. (Stay tuned next week for an exclusive OC Weekly video of Charles Lam sampling the hottest chile dish in which he sweats a lot and I laugh at him.)
