Hi guys, I don't know about you, but this week in Orange County has kind of been a bummer. With the news of The Crosby closing and strange things happening at the Santora Building - we could use a pick me up. So, here's some unrelated food news complete with no sadness or drama!

Hello, beauties.
Hey Ya'll, hope you're enjoying this terribly hot, winter weather. Let me try to take you elsewhere by engaging your stomach...

This week Edwin went to Atun, a sushi restaurant in Long Beach, for his print review. Then he told us about some restaurant openings and closings in the county. Check out Tabi-Ji, a Japanese teppanyaki in Tustin, Tabu Burgers & Bites in Santa Ana, or the Indian restaurant that's now taken over Traditions in Tustin.

Happy friday, guys! How about, don't do real work and read this nicely condensed version of our weekly food blog instead?

Let's begin, as we always do, with Edwin. He took us to Bonefish Grill in Tustin for his print review, listed 10 Fullerton restaurants he deems absolutely essential to...Fullerton, and shared the rather shitty news that PeeWee's Famous Hot Dogs and Hamburgers in HB has closed. Nooooo! Glorious, sweet potato tater tots! Goodbye delicious hot dogs too big for human mouths! We'll miss you dearly.

Pub food, Viet-style
Greetings ladies and germs! Here's this week's dining digest. Let's take a look at what happened...

Edwin went to Oc & Lau Restaurant in Little Saigon, and enjoyed, specifically, their "fantastic" escargot. Mmm? Then he told us about the rumor going around that DivBar in Newport Beach is officially closed down, and he announced the debut of the Sriracha movie. Sriracha movie? I must not be that obsessed.

Hello my little rascals! So sorry you had to put up with Charles' sass in last week's Dining Digest. What's up with that guy, anyway?! Let's move on to the next week...

Edwin went to the long-awaited Selanne Steak Tavern and hey! looks like somebody's good at more things than hockey. He gave us a list of the 10 essential restaurants in Costa Mesa, although I need to argue with him about why Pitfire Pizza didn't make the list 'cause hot damn is that a good pie. Next he told us to try the spicy wontons at Ren Asian Bistro, and last he graced us with the most wonderful, lovely news I've heard all day: Beard Papa's cream puffs are making a comeback. HELL YES.

Hello dearest readers! With LP being a slacker and actually taking vacation time this week (who does that?), it falls to me to deliver to you the dining digest you all know and love.

This week, Edwin made the trek down to the Irvine Spectrum to try The Melt, a Web 2.0, San Franciscan grilled cheese truck trying to worm its way into Southern California with a brick and mortar. Mr. Goei also had restaurant openings on lock this week, announcing the openings of Rasoi Curry Point in Tustin, Seoulmate in Long Beach, Empanada Maker in Mission Viejo, Lily Chai also at the Spectrum, and Taiko Udon in the heart of Little Saigon.
