Have an event at 8:30 pm tonight. Ideally looking for something that’s less common on the Westside, otherwise I’d just go to Sichuan Impression and call it a day. Vietnamese and KBBQ are off the table, unfortunately. No other strict limitations but somewhere with multiple options for somewhat picky eaters (in the “doesn’t like vegetables inextricably intermingled in their food” sense) would be great. I realize this is a bit tricky but I’ve been searching our Irvine/OC recommendations for an hour already
Budget should be ~$30/pp. Willing to drive a bit, though as I’m coming from the Westside something in that direction would be better than the opposite. # of people is flexible (but minimum 2).
