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.
