As a foodie I must admit I look towards LA as the foodie nirvana that titillates my taste buds with cuisines from all over the world as well as modern homestyle (I never say no the mac & cheese) so imagine my surprise when I learned of the Golden Foodies award that recognizes great food in the OC! When I think of the OC it’s not for great food .. not bad food but nothing I’d drive out of town but last year at the Taste of LA they had a couple of restaurants from the OC that got me curious. The food was REALLY good but I just haven’t had time to research a good place to try. BUT I love to vote and give my opinion on food so am thinking I might have to check out the winners! Anyone in the OC planning on rating a hometown favorite or try a new place? Leave a suggestion of a restaurant or bar I should try when I head to the OC this fall!
