Although the wait was rather long, our party of 6 didn't mind as the food was really good. We had a selection of appetizers including babaghanoush, hummus, labne etc

My favorite entree was the lamb shank and Moroccan fish tagine. The French fries that came with the hangar steak was outstanding. 

I also loved the hot chile paste condiment they give you. So good!

Had a wonderful meal at Tsurutontan. The place fills up fast and we're glad we got there early. The cold udon was my favorite due to the elasticity of the noodles. The ones immersed in hot broth was a tad less chewy but still very very good.

On our trip to NYC, we came to Simit Sarayi several times to get the simits. These are sesame crusted bagel looking bread from Turkey. You can opt for them plain, with feta cheese and tomato, smoked salmon, cream cheese and avocado, and more.

Chef Ross Pangilinan, previously at Leatherby's Cafe Rouge has ventured out on his own in downtown Santa Ana. His Mix Mix Kitchen Bar is an extension of what he has been doing at Patina Group, but more bold and more creative. There is no limits to his out of the box menu creations.

 

One of the best restaurants in Orange County right now!

Chinese ethnic minority cuisine in the heart of Irvine. Lamb is prominently featured on the menu as well as some unique dishes such as tripe and breads popular in north-western China. Hand pulled noodles are incredible!
